Today you will enjoy views of the impressive summit of la Cumbre on your way to your next hotel situated in the mountain village of Tejeda.
After a short taxi transfer (10 min), you will start a challenging walk today taking on two steep ascents to reach an elevation of 1715m.
Following the ancient Camino Real to the village of Fagajesto, you will then walk a tarmac section along a high ridge surrounded by pastures. Stop for a rest before beginning your second steep ascent of the day, following paths through pine forests near Galdar. After descending to the crossroads at Cruz de Tejeda stop for a cool refreshment before descending down the ridge to Tejeda. Enroute you will pass the south side of an extinct volcanic crater, with views to the sea.
(If you wish to shorten the route by 2.5-4.5 km, follow instructions in your route notes to travel with luggage transfer to Fagajesto at the day's start.)
