Walking Paradise Tenerife

Wild Atlantic, sunny coast & volcanic rock.

Starting from the roaring Atlantic Ocean in the north-west, this multifarious week of hiking takes you across the unique mountain scenery of black volcanic rock into the sunny south-west. In the enchanting little coastal town of Garachico you enjoy breathtaking views onto the vast Atlantic Ocean and the green northern coast of the island. You cross several vegetation areas – each emanating its unique charm – and delve into the alpine world of the Teno-mountain range. The hike through the Masca-gorge is an extraordinary highlight to look forward to, with its steep towering rockfaces and unique flora. In the south-west you walk along ancient bridle paths and visit the highest point of the Canaries, and the grand finale of your hiking holiday is an impressive walk through the biggest National Park of the island.

Itinerary

Garachico is located on the roaring Atlantic coast in the north-west of Tenerife. The old part of town boasts beautiful mansions, churches and the ‚Castillo San Miguel’. The volcanic rock pools invite to a refeshing plunge.

Hotel (example): La Quinta Roja

You hike through the very recent volcanic area of Garachico along historic paths. The strenuous ascent to the Ermita de San Francisco is rewarded with a stunning view onto the town situated below, but first and foremost onto the Atlantic Ocean and the entire northern coastline. After a short break in San Juan del Reparo you descend across the fertile landscape past colourful flowers, cactee and agaves back to the sea again.

On today’s tour you experience yet another one of Tenerife’s unique landscapes. You walk up to a viewpoint located at over 1800m in altitude just below Mount Teides, from where you can spot the ‚white lunarscape’. Let your imagination go wild whilst watching these bizzare sand stone formations on the slopes created by wind, water and the weather. An amazing contrast compared to the black volcanic rock of the past few days.

Abwechslungsreiche Wanderung auf schönen Wegen
Highlight war Garachico, ein schönes kleines Städtchen mit Flair und einem tollen Hotel. Die Strecken waren sehr gut beschrieben, sehr abwechslungsreich und z.T. anspruchsvoll. Die Hotels waren sehr unterschiedlich. Wir hatten sowohl ein einfaches Landhotel, eine Touristenbettenburg, sowie zwei sehr schöne Individualhotels. Alle Unterkünfte waren gut und überall war der Service freundlich. Die Organisation, Gepäcktransport und Wanderunterlagen waren sehr gut.

Lieber Wandergast, vielen herzlichen Dank für Ihr tolles Reisefeedback! Wir sind immer um einen spannenden Mix aus traditionellen und manchmal auch etwas größeren Unterkünften bemüht, schön, dass Ihnen die Auswahl gefallen hat. Interessante Strecken, die einem Land und Leute näher bringen sind uns bei der Auswahl genauso wichtig, Garachico ist dabei wirklich ein besonderes Highlight gleich am Anfang der Reise!

Wanderwoche Teneriffa
Sehr schönes Wanderprogramm, deckt viele Aspekte dieser einzigartigen Insel ab. Wir waren zum ersten Mal zum Wandern dort und haben viele neue Eindrücke gewonnen, die wir vorher noch nicht kannten. Die Strecken waren sehr gut ausgearbeitet und der Hotelmix hat uns ebenfalls gefallen - von ruhig bis luxuriös war alles dabei!
