8. Private hiking tour Teno Rural Park with an expert guide
Discover Teno Rural Park's stunning landscape in Tenerife on a hiking route with a local guide. See for yourself why this lush park is one of the most beautiful natural spaces on the island. Learn about its diverse ecological landscapes and varied wildlife.
Hop on your private tour bus with your guide and head straight to the Teno Rural Park. Located in the extreme northwest of the Tenerife, the park was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO as it has preserved its great ecological, landscape, and cultural values, largely thanks to its isolation.
See the extremely complicated orography of this area, and marvel at the thought that people once lived here in the past. Take in its varied landscape - from its impressive cliffs, valleys, low islands, laurel forest areas, as well as magnificent examples of traditional architecture.
Begin your walking route in Santiago del Teide. You will have the best views of Teno, including that of the town of Masca - one of the most impressive villages on the island of Tenerife.
Leaving Santiago del Teide, begin a gentle ascent through the valley towards the summit at the limit of where the pine forest begins. Little by little, gain height and watch as fantastic views of El Teide with Pico Viejo and Santiago del Teide in the background unfurl in front of your eyes.
Through the route, we will be able to observe several of the most incredible points of the park, such as the Cumbre del Bolico, or the Erjos ponds, which are wonderful.
From this point on, the entire path is level or downhill. Descend through the ridges of the upper part of Masca, where you see the eponymous valley on both sides of the ridge.
Although it is a moderate level route, it requires being in good physical shape to be able to travel the total 11km.
