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.

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).
