Our tour begins at your hotel where one of our guides will pick you up for the ride towards Erjos.
At the agricultural mountain village of Erjos we start our hike from the local cafe and head towards Teno range, passing by Charcos de Erjos: a rare wetlands which are a delight for bird observers. Then up to Cruz de Gala mountain pass alternating northern laurisilva forest with southern Canarian pine forest.
From there along the Masca ridge towards El Bolico, this upper part path goes through forests mostly, so it is very good for hot seasons. There are stunning views over the Masca gorges to the Atlantic with La Gomera and La Palma islands in the background.
Descending towards the small agricultural village of Las Portelas the hike ends at a local farmhouse, where we may try some local products. The hike may take 3-4 hours to complete.From there we go by road to the historical colonial town of Garachico.
Here we will have some time to explore, enjoy the many terraces or visit the scars left by the volcanic eruption that destroyed the town in 1706

I participated into a hiking week at Tenerife. All activities were organized by Xwander even though the trip package was sold by Tjäreborg.
Everything worked really well. Sini, the main... read more guide was really pleasant company and all other guides (Eija, Veijo and Outi) were really knowledgeable. Eija and Outi both have lived in Canary islands "for ever" and were able to tell a lot about the life and nature there in addition to normal information about the hiking route.
We had nice small group and weather could not have been any better. That is naturally something Xwander cannot impact but we were lucky.
One of the hikes, AFUR - TAGANANA, was more challenging that I anticipated based on the travel information but I'm happy I did it. The views were gorgeous! Small critic there, Veijo might have walked a little slower and there could have been another longer break. Now the schedule felt a bit too tight for "normal" people.
Day at the La Gomera island was nice addition to this trip since it was the first time for me on that island.
This is in my mind best way to see the Tenerife or any other of Canary islands. Suitable amount of different days in the nature but also time to enjoy the hotel pool and one day off to spent how ever you wish.

We had three tour guides and they were all very polite, knew a lot about Anaga Rural Park and the island of Tenerife. They gave us information about the different... read more kinds of plants we found on the way. You don't need to bring a camera if you don't want to, because they take pictures for you and of you. Also, they brought water bottles, raincoats, energy bars, and extra fleeces.
The pickup and drop off was included and we ended the hiking in a local restaurant where the food was delicious. We didn't have to worry about a thing during the whole tour. All the guides were well prepared.
One of the highlights of the tour, for me, was meeting a herd of sheep: they were sooo cute!!! But, of course, from every point of view, the landscapes were breathtaking.
Wear your most comfortable walking shoes and you're fine. It's a beginner's trail. More
