Description

Hiking through the Biosphere Reserve of Anaga

Make your way to the very heart of northern Tenerife with a guided trail through the Anaga country park, where you will find many surprises. If you thought you’d seen everything on the island, then get ready for this. This tour of the Biosphere Reserve of Anaga includes scenery found nowhere else on the Canary Islands, a demonstration of a local sport that will leave you speechless, and a walk through the north of Tenerife which the explorer in you will relish.

Discover Anaga and Canarian culture with an experienced guide

Pay close attention to everything s/he tells you. From the very beginning of the tour, the guide will tell you about La Laguna, Mount Teide, the local traditions and the terrain, all of which you will learn more about as the hike continues. Ask the guide questions and don’t hold back: make the most of this unique opportunity to explore the island with this priceless advantage.

Attend a live demonstration of the Shepherd’s Leap

The multitude of ravines, crags, steep slopes and cliffs have always posed a challenge for the indigenous shepherds of Tenerife. The method they came up with to overcome this challenge is known as El Salto del Pastor (the Shepherd’s Leap). You can see this technique in all its splendour and see what it can achieve with a demonstration at a stop along the route.

Traditional food in the Anaga Rural Park

To make this visit to Anaga even more authentic, you will have an opportunity at Taborno to sample some of the local dishes exclusive to this remarkable island. As well as enabling you to learn about the gastronomic traditions of the region, this will recharge your batteries to help you reach your destination (El Pico del Inglés). After a short rest, you will return to the starting point, having completed a walk to and from the heart of the Anaga nature park, a paradise for both nature lovers and all those who are fascinated by local traditions.

Mount Teide Cable Car

Amazing way to end a day from the top of a volcano

Seeing the sunset in a place near to the Teide's peak is one of the most amazing experiences you can live here. We had good luck because the visibility was incredible, so we saw more islands from the top, like La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. Im from Tenerife, this was the second time I booked for this experience. And I would do it again, and again. 100% recommended.
