Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Garachico
Arrive in the perfectly preserved coastal town of Garachico and your elegant hotel set in a beautiful 17th century mansion.

Day 2: Teno Rural Park Walk 8KM/5MI/3HR or 11.5KM/7MI/5HR
Start the day with a short drive through the banana plantations of La Isla Baja to Parque Rural de Teno. Then set off on foot from the village of El Palmar to the mountain ridge and the Mirador de Baracan. There are superb views of deep barrancos snaking down the cliffs to the coast and you can even see as far as La Gomera on a clear day. Continue past abandoned terraces, stone circles and traditional farmhouses.

Day 3: Arenas Negras Volcano Walk 13KM/8MI/4HR or 15KM/9.5MI/5HR
Visit the Ecomuseo del Tanque to see how the islanders lived in times gone by, then follow the Canal de Vergara to La Corona Forestal, the green lungs of Tenerife and home to masses of birdlife, including the endemic pinzon azul (Canary blue chaffinch). The landscape changes to black sand and rocks as the Arenas Negras volcano looms into view through the trees. Return across the Chinyero lava field, with its contrasting rich green lichen.

Day 4: Monte del Agua Walk 8KM/5MI/4HR or 11.5KM/7MI/5HR
From the tranquil village of Erjos, head to Monte del Agua, a treasure trove of richly diverse flora and birdlife. At Casas de La Cumbre, views over deep ravines spread out before you before youre rewarded with the sight of snow capped Teide. The last descent takes you to the Charcas de Erjos ponds where local and migrant birds can be spotted.

Day 5: Teide National Park Samara and Black Caves 5KM/3MI/2.5HR or 9KM/5.5MI/4HR
Today you set out on your discovery of the Teide National Park comprising of several volcanoes including mighty Mount Teide. Climb to the summit of Samara for an outstanding panorama over the volcanic chaos of Montana Reventada, the archaeological Guanche remains of Cuevas Negras and Pico Viejo, Tenerifes second highest volcano. Its a short onward drive to your hotel in the village of Vilaflor - the highest village on Tenerife and famous for its almendrados or almond biscuits!

Day 6: The Moon Landscape 8KM/5MI/3HR or 13KM/8MI/5HR
An exhilarating walk today follows the Camino Real de Chasna an ancient shepherds path connecting the north with the south of the island. Pass through protected pine forest to Los Escurriales, or the Moon Landscape, a fragile geological formation carved over centuries by wind and water erosion.

Day 7: The Best Mirador of Teide 11KM/7MI/5HR
Savour the best vistas of Mount Teides caldera and its ochre coloured palette of lava flows along the Siete Canadas trail to the summit of Mount Guajara. With views as far as Gran Canaria and La Palma on a clear day, its a fantastic ending to a weeks walking. The easier option today takes you to Teide's caldera and the Roques de Garcia (3.5KM/2MI/2HR)

Day 8: Leave Vilaflor
Make your way back to the airport in time for your flight home.

Accommodation

Hotel La Quinta Roja (4 star)
La Quinta Roja is a restored nobleman's mansion right next to the village square in Garachico, so you could not be more central. They have preserved all that is historic and beautiful - ancient wooden boards on the first floor balcony enclosing the central courtyard, and the original stone stairs for example - while modern touches add to the quirky but compelling style. Bedrooms have different room dimensions and come with the original wooden shutters, as well as towelling robes, stereo and all your modern comforts.

Hotel Spa VillAlba (4 star)
The Hotel Spa VillAlba is the perfect get away from it all, peacefully located on the edge of the highest village on Tenerife and surrounded by pine trees. It is superbly appointed, coming with spa facilities - including Turkish bath, sauna and jacuzzi - as well as an indoor / outdoor swimming pool. The bright and comfortable rooms are spacious and with views overlooking the pine forest or the hotel gardens. There is also a cosy lounge, complete with log burning fire, and a TV room.
