To start, we’ll pick you up at your hotel in our comfortable private van in the morning. Watch the scenery unfold as we drive through mountain villages towards the Agua García forest in Tacoronte. During the drive our expert guides will share information about the area and are happy to answer any questions.
Arriving at the start of the hiking route, your guide will give you a short briefing about the day’s hike and hand out snacks and water. We have a few of different options, depending on how long we want to make the hike. Most trails take about 1,5-2 hours to complete, taking you along narrow mountain paths that criss-cross in the thick laurisilva forest.
After a brief rest at one of the scenic BBQ areas you will continue past several points of interest, which can vary slightly depending on the route we’re taking. One of them is a small donkey farm, where you can stop and take photos. You can also see 16th century caves that were once used by local miners to extract minerals to create glass.
Finally emerging from the hiking trail, we get back in the van and continue on to the historical Bodegas Monje, where the Monje family have been producing wine for five generations, specialising in red wines from Listán Negro and Negramoll grapes. The winery sits on the hills of La Hollera in the El Sauzal municipality. You will get a private tour of the winery and learn about the history of wine on the island and see the techniques used to make wine today.
After the tour you will head to the on-site restaurant and enjoy a delicious three-course lunch of fresh bread, pumpkin soup, Canarian potatoes and oven-baked pork followed by coffee and dessert, accompanied by three top quality wines from the estate. An optional vegetarian main course is available.
One of the highlights of the restaurant is its impressive terrace offering breathtaking views of the vineyards below, the coastline and Mount Teide in the horizon. Sitting here sipping wines and eating good food in the afternoon is just the perfect way to reward yourself after the hike!
After the meal you will have a chance to make purchases at the on-site wine shop. The perfect souvenir to take back home!
This is a small group tour – Travel comfortably in our private van and enjoy the company of your friendly guides and fellow guests.

We had a hiking trip in the tenerife mountains. It was well organized, staff took well care of us and they had a good flow and interesting information of small... read more details during the hike!
Tenerife is just not the beach life, the mountains gives you a nice variety when you are getting bored on the beach!
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. More

I did not know what to expect, but I was really blown away by the clear water and colorful fish life. The guides were so friendly and patient with me.... read more Gave lots of info about the fish we saw and took very well care of me the whole day. I would really recommend anyone visiting Tenerife to go for a dive and Xwander is for sure the company to go with if you want the best service! Didn't see any turtles this time, but fingers crossed for next time! I would definitely come back and do it again.
