Canary island Tenerife Self-guided Walking Tour

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 rock faces 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.
