Holiday information

 

A walking holiday on Tenerife

Travel through Tenerife’s fascinating history, from its former capital city of La Laguna, through its volcanic heartland where the island’s explosive life began, to pretty Garachico which rose from the ashes of the 1706 eruption that destroyed its legendary wealth.

This is a journey from city to coast, taking in the island’s ancient mountain ranges and some of its oldest towns where life at the crossroads to the New World unfolded, and where – over the course of five centuries – fortunes were made, lost and buried in lava.

  • Arrival in La Laguna

    Night 1: La Laguna Gran Hotel (the first of two nights here).
    As your first night’s accommodation is on the day of travel, Day 1 is your first day of walking/exploration.

  • Choice of walks – and a drive – from La Laguna

    Choose from a range of options, some of which you can combine – for example, you can combine the Discovery Drive with a Town Walk.

    La Laguna Town Walk
    Explore the atmospheric streets where colonial architecture sits cheek by jowl with bookshops, boutiques and charismatic tapas bars, taking in its pretty parks and plazas; palaces, convents and churches; and learning about its fascinating history at the crossroads to the New World.
     
    La Orotava Town Walk
    Tenerife's most aristocratic town and home to the island's wealthiest merchants and landowners since the Spanish conquest, La Orotava has the finest examples of balconied houses to be found in the Canary Islands. Italian gardens, a fine Baroque church and flower-filled streets are just some of the town's treasures.

    Discovery Drive: Anaga and Playa Teresitas
    This route through the remote Anaga Mountains takes in some of the most beautiful scenery on Tenerife. There are plenty of viewpoints along the way and the route ends at the beautiful, golden-sand beach of Las Teresitas, alongside a fishing village where you'll find some of the island's best fish and seafood restaurants.

    Cruz del Carmen to Chinamada: 11.5km, 5hrs; ascent/descent 775m
    This excellent Anaga Mountains walk takes you through laurel rainforests that pre-date the Ice Age, and above abyssal ravines where clusters of white houses cling to the hillside, to the tiny settlement of Chinamada where electricity arrived less than 20 years ago and where the locals still live in caves.

    Afur to Tamadite: 5.5km, 2hrs; ascent/descent 565m
    The steep barrancos of the Anaga mountain range are one of its most dramatic features and this superb walk takes you into one of the most fertile of these ravines. Traversing its pretty floor, where a small stream feeds a green seam of cane, you travel to a remote, black-sand beach called Tamadite. Return along the same route.

    Discovery drive: Anaga and Playa Teresitas
    Cruz del Carmen to Chinamada: 11.5km
    Afur to Tamadite: 5.5km
  • Drive from La Laguna to Vilaflor
    A spectacular drive along the spine of the island bestows far-reaching views down both east and west coasts before arriving into the volcanic dreamland of Teide National Park. Travelling through the crater in which Mount Teide rises, your journey ends in the alpine-like village of Vilaflor and the beautiful spa hotel of Villalba, set amongst the pines and your base for two nights.
    Drive to Vilaflor
  • Choice of walks from Vilaflor: 4.5km to 14km

    Paisaje Lunar: 7.5km, 3hrs; ascent/descent 340m
    Accessed by a short drive, this classic Tenerife walk ascends along the 'Camino de Chasna', which was used extensively in the 17th and 18th centuries by explorers, scientists and well-heeled Victorians over-wintering on Tenerife on the advice of their physicians. Climbing above the village, you ascend through pine forest to the surreal rock formations of Paisaje Lunar (lunar landscape) where, over half a million years, the elements have sculpted fantastical shapes from volcanic fallout to create a unique and fascinating landscape. Return to your hotel by car.
     
    Vilaflor Wine Route: 14km, 6hrs; ascent/descent 510m (shorter option: 11km, 5hrs)
    This second option combines pleasant woodland walking with an opportunity to try some of the Hotel Villalba's award-winning wines. Trails through the pine forest lead to Vilaflor's wine country, where you traverse country lanes lined with vineyards and, in early spring, almond blossom.The full route brings you to the Bodega Reverón, where you can take a tour before trying a selection of wines which are also available to buy.

    Roques de Garcia: 4.5km, 2hrs; ascent/descent 220m
    Beginning with a short drive, this easy route takes you through the lunar landscapes of the Cañadas at the foot of Mount Teide. You pass many curious rock formations, including the 'Finger of God', as the path crosses scrubland, lava flows and azure-coloured rocks.

    Mount Guajara: 10km, 4hrs; ascent/descent 680m
    This challenging option leads to the peak of Mount Guajara, the highest point of the remaining crater wall and site of the world's first high-mountain observatory, and returns along the same route.

    El Teide: 13.8km, 4.5hrs; ascent/descent 365m
    A relatively flat circular route explores the desert-like landscapes of the central caldera, providing excellent views of the mountainous rim, dramatic volcanic lava flows and El Teide itself. In the event of heavy snowfall, which is not uncommon between November and February, the path will be closed. In good weather it is possible to reach the summit of El Teide by taking the cable car to the station beneath the peak. From here, it's a short but exhilarating walk to the top, although you will need to obtain a free permit to access this walk. Permits become available online six months in advance, and are very popular, so we recommend reserving yours as soon as possible.

    Paisaje Lunar: 7.5km
    Vilaflor wine route: 14km
    Roques de Garcia: 4.5km
    Mount Guajara: 10km
  • Drive from Vilaflor to Garachico
    Lava morphs to lush landscapes as you drive through traditional hamlets high above the coast before zig-zagging down a panoramic road to the handsome port of Garachico on the island’s north-west coast. Spend your final three nights in either the delightful La Quinta Roja, or upgrade to the exquisite Hotel San Roque.
     
    Vilaflor to Garachico
  • Choice of walks – and a drive – from Garachico

    On the Lava Trail: 8km, 3.5hrs; ascent/descent 520m
    Climbing above the town, this route follows the 18th-century trails of lava that devastated Garachico to the traditional hill town of San Juan del Reparo, before returning down a second lava flow along a panoramic path – little used except by locals – that winds down to the coast.
     
    Teno Alto Circular: 10km, 4hrs; ascent/descent 665m
    A route for flower lovers, and ascending from the village of El Palmar with its distinctive 'pie-shaped- quarry, this takes you along a camino real lined with lush flora to traverse a ridge – carpeted in wildflowers from late-February – which offers panoramic views including, if the visibility is clear, a superb aspect of Mount Teide.
     
    Los Silos Circuit: 15.5km, 7hrs; ascent/descent 1200m
    A testing but rewarding route that climbs above the north-west coast alongside steep barrancos to reach the ancient Monte de Agua. Traversing forest tracks to reach the village of Erjos, you then descend back to Los Silos, passing the extraordinary landscape of the Cuevas Negras (Black Caves) en route.

    Discovery Drive: Isla Baja
    This leisurely drive through the fertile Isla Baja takes in some of Tenerife's oldest towns and the cornucopia of treasures they conceal, beginning in Icod de los Vinos where the 1,000-year-old drago milenario tree takes centre stage. Descending a switch-back, panoramic road from the hills to the coast, you then drive westwards, taking in Los Silos with its Art Nouveau centre and whale skeleton, and Buenavista del Norte where there is a black-sand beach and a pretty coastal path.

The route notes not only contain directions to get from A to B, but also include practical information about places of interest and eateries along each route, plus cultural information about the area. If/when you are moving between hotels, you leave your luggage in reception as you leave, and it will be transferred ahead to your next accommodation, meaning that all you need to take with you are a camera, sun cream, drinks, food and waterproofs.

    For more detailed information, see our walking holidays in Europe page.
  • Yes, prior to going on holiday you will be able to download GPX tracks so that you can follow your route on your smartphone or dedicated GPS device if you wish. It’s entirely up to you whether or not you use them – our detailed, step-by-step route notes remain the principal means of guiding you from A to B – but we provide them as a secondary means of navigation for additional reassurance when walking.
  • We can book a wide range of routes from the UK with a variety of airlines. As well as being more convenient for you to book all elements of your holiday together, it also means that we’ll accept liability for your travel arrangements, so if things go wrong, such as the airline going bust, we’ll make suitable alternative arrangements for you. The fee for this service is £35 per person (£15 for children aged 2-11). More information on flights >
  • Absolutely! We are experts in tailored rail travel. Making use of sleeper trains or stopovers in cities along the route, we can get you from London to virtually anywhere in mainland Europe. We can even make arrangements to Mallorca, Sicily and Norway with a combination of ferries and rail. Please contact us to discuss your plans.
  • We can’t book flights that originate outside the UK, but if you wanted to book your own flights to London (or elsewhere in the UK), we can make all onward travel arrangements (including flights) from there. Alternatively, if you are booking your own flights to an airport in continental Europe that’s appropriate for your holiday, we can book onward rail travel and/or taxis.

  • Since our holidays are self-guided, we recommend calling us for a chat about your plans before making a booking, especially if it’s the first time you’ve booked with us.
    The price panel shows the supplement for a single room and also the single traveller charge (this covers (luggage) transfers and other costs which are usually shared between two people).
  • Once you’ve decided on your exact itinerary (our travel experts will be happy to offer advice), you need to provide us with your party’s details, either by phone or via our booking form. At this point we also ask you to pay a deposit so that we can secure a room for you immediately on confirming availability with the hotel(s). If it turns out that we can’t secure the accommodation for the holiday you’ve requested, or offer an acceptable alternative, we’ll refund your deposit promptly and in full. After booking your accommodation and other key elements, we'll then book your travel (or you can do so if you’re making your own arrangements) and send you a Booking Confirmation and Invoice.

  • Yes, it’s something we insist on, even for holidays in the UK. The vast majority of holidays go smoothly, but when things go wrong, it can be expensive to put them right. Buying a new pair of walking boots after your suitcase is stolen mightn’t seem so bad, but the bill for being airlifted down from a mountain with a broken leg or flown home while still recovering from an illness or accident can incur a five or six-figure bill.

    Many insurers offer travel insurance (you can find details on our insurance page of a policy that you may like to consider if you are a UK resident), but you do need to make sure that you’re covered for medical emergencies – including falling ill with Covid-19 while on holiday – and repatriation. We also recommend that you are covered for other eventualities, such as cancellation and loss of luggage and passports.

    When you purchase a policy, be sure to check that it covers the activities you'll be doing on holiday and that it is adequate for your own individual needs.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure you are in possession of the correct travel documents, with the correct validity. If you’re a UK citizen, you need a full British passport to travel to Spain, but not a visa (please note, however, that a new travel authorisation system is being introduced). If you are a citizen of another country, you’ll need to check requirements with the national embassy or your own consulate.

    Current information regarding vaccinations and travel health advice for UK citizens can be found through the Travel Health Pro website. You must make sure you have adequate insurance cover for illness, accidents and repatriation (see the insurance question). You should also apply for a Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) if your EHIC has expired (if you have a still-valid EHIC, you can use this until it expires).
  • (Castilian) Spanish is one of several official languages; Catalan, Basque and Gallego have equal status in Catalonia, the Basque Country and Galicia, respectively. The currency is the Euro. Spanish time is GMT/UTC + 1. It uses Daylight Saving Time, so in summer is on BST + 1.
  • For information on the practicalities of travel now that the UK is no longer part of the European Union, visit www.gov.uk/visit-eu-switzerland-norway-iceland-liechtenstein.
  • The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) provides up-to-date, country-by-country travel advice, as well as information on security, local laws, passports and visas for UK citizens.

    If you live outside the UK, see our essential travel information page for a list of relevant websites.
  • You are the best judge of your child’s/children’s capabilities. We are happy to take bookings for families of older children/teenagers if they walk regularly, love the outdoors and are comfortable with the distances and ascent/descent involved. Please note that the bedrooms at most of the accommodation we use will normally only sleep a maximum of 3 people, and sometimes only 2.
