We start at Arenas Negras, located in the North-West mountains, a picnic area in the middle of a centenarian Canarian Pine forest. As we slightly climb the vegetation starts to change due to the altitude and we discover an area of great geological significance. The recent lava flows create a unique insight into volcanic history. incredible aeolian habitats where the species have to survive on particles carried in the wind.
Chinyero, the volcano that lends its name to this nature area and home to Tenerife’s latest volcanic eruption in 1909,stands at 1,560 m and is impossible to overlook. This circular hike takes us from shady forests to rugged volcanic beds through constant changes and stunning views. We also see some of the many channels that bring water from the “galerías”( horizontal wells dug into the mountains) to the towns by the mere force of gravity.
This is an easy hike with a duration of approximately 3 hours at a comfortable pace. After the hike, we drive through northern forests and villages to a local farmhouse and vineyard, a “guachinche” , to enjoy Canarian food and wine.
This is a small group tour – Travel comfortably in our private van and enjoy the company of your friendly guides and fellow guests.
Proper hiking or sports footwear, sunscreen and sunglasses.

I booked three different activities (Whale watching, kayaking, horseriding) for the last week of July, under a week before I emailed to enquire about how to pay by card, at... read more which point I was told the "company was going through changes" and the kayaking & horse riding were cancelled, but the whale watching "should still be going ahead".
Two days later I was emailed to say the whale watching was now cancelled as well.
They have since then cited staff sickness and the fact the last week of July is "low season" as the reason for this (not even lack of bookings which would be more understandable). The fact is they took no steps to notify me the activities were now cancelled (still available to book now on their website incidentally) isn't confidence building. I have a feeling I would've only found out about the cancellations at last minute if I'd not emailed them.
They did respond to me after I commented on facebook to get in touch and they could help put me in touch with other operators, but I have a feeling this is only because I left a public comment.
Very disappointed - their activities looked great with great selections, but that's no use if they don't actually happen.
