We stated this year with a few days holiday on a great island as Tenerife, an island with different climates, beaches and a volcanic landscape. The days we spent on the island were well loaded with highlights and all this now seams to be a dream.
I don’t want to forget this experience and I’m happy to share what I saw and felt in this amazing place.
We bought the flight, booked our overnight stays and prepared the program (or better the options) ahead.
A great discovery was the highly recommended app of Wikiloc! With this tool hiking was incredible attractive and we discovered an infinity of options. All you need a good Smarphone and place (with WIFI) to load the maps and the trail ahead while during hiking the GPS will sufficient and you will not need the internet.
The fist trail we followed (by Nacho 1951) was a great hit; I really recommend to follow his trails if you are on Teneriffe. He is a great expert and a good guide!
Coming from the south we reached the Anaga after about 30 minutes drive through an enchanted forest and spectacular views!
We parked in picturesque village called Taganana with a beautiful old church an a wonderful “dragon tree“.
The walk starts in Taganana from the central of “Plaza Nuestra Señora de Las Nieves”; we walked along historical trails from where we enjoyed the spectacular views and we reached the incredible beautiful laurel forest (“laurisilva”).
We shortened the trail going back to Taganana by car, so that we had some more time to explore the north coast passing from Benijo whith the black sand beach and having a look to the village of Draguillo.
