Tour Overview

Using minibus transfers, our expert local guide will ensure you make the most of your time on this captivating island. An area rich in heritage, we're based in the 'Isla Baja' on the quiet north-west corner of the island where traditional towns and villages proudly guard the wild beauty of its dramatic, volcanic mountains and spectacular coastline. We walk along ancient trails with incredible panoramic views linking tiny whitewashed villages and towns. The dramatic volcanic landscape of the UNESCO World Heritage Teide National Park contrasts with the lush green of the cool forests of pine, cork and the enchanting sub-tropical 'laurisilva' of the Anaga Rural Park.

Today's walk takes us to the Chinyero Reserve to view the dramatic volcanic
landscapes of the coal black Chinyero volcano and the spectacular El Volcan
Negro. We cross lava flows where the first lichens bring colour to the rocks
and volcanic ash fields are framed by fragrant Canary mints shrubs, native
Canary pine trees and azure blue skies. Some birds like the endemic Canary
blue chaffinch or the grey spotted woodpecker frequent this area. Passing
through the Arenas Negras (black sands), the air is fresh with scents of pine
resin and giant flows of solid lava offer perfect views of Mount Teide.

Spectacular views today of the Atlantic Ocean, La Gomera, El Palmar Valley,
the Los Carrizales Ravine and the crowning glory of Mount Teide. The Teno
Rural Park is rich in natural heritage and preserved in time with abandoned
terraces, stone circles, traditional farmhouses and cheese factories. We
follow shady forest paths to the hamlet of Teno Alto with its tiny church and
where we lunch on regional specialities in a local restaurant. We descend on
the Callejon de Teno trail down through the fertile El Palmar Valley, passing
in front of a unique volcanic cone, through terraces of golden barley and
past remote farmsteads.

Tenerife's dramatic landscape includes soaring volcanic cliffs and
snow-capped Mount Teide, which at 7,500m high from its base on the ocean
floor, makes it the third largest volcano in the world. Starting at the El
Portillo visitors centre where we can learn all about this volcanic
landscape, today's walk takes us through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of
the Teide National Park. A mecca for geologists, look out for lava flows in
vividly contrasting colours, pumice and obsidian. We drive back through the
magnificent landscapes of the Teide caldera as we return back to the hotel. 

icon Day 5 : Free Day

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

In the morning perhaps explore the lava rock pools and narrow streets of
Garachico, with its 16th century churches and their beautiful vaulted

cool shady paths through the magical sub-tropical laurisilva which colonises
the northern part of Tenerife, where the trees tower at up to 1,000m high.
Our day also includes a trip to Laguna market to choose our picnic lunch from
the local produce available. This is a fabulous day for endemic flora and
fauna, with stunning views of Mount Teide and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

Food

Canarian dishes tend to be simple and elegant, owing much to sunripened tropical fruits such as paw-paw, prickly pear and bananas, local vegetables such as sweetcorn and potatoes, and fresh fish such as moray and snapper. Specialities include conejo al salmorejo (slow cooked rabbit with garlic, paprika and chili); rancho canario (a chickpea meaty soup), ropa vieja (chicken, pork and or beef stew); chocos (cuttlefish); and crema de puerros y bubangos (cream of leek and prawn stew). The most popular fish are members of the sea bass family - cherne, cabrilla or merluza are common, and you may find grilled swordfish (espada a la plancha), as well as calamares (squid), gambas (prawns) and pulpo (octopus).
