Barlovento to Franceses

Today you’ll stride out on undulating coastline through the green gorges of the north. This area contrasts beautifully with the volcanic centre which you’ll encounter  in the following days.

San Andres to Barlovento

Tuck into breakfast at a seafront fisherman’s tavern, before climbing the path to Los Sauces; a small town with a vibrant atmosphere.  

Franceses to Roque del Faro

This area is known as the French Quarter of the island, and retains a delightful rural charm. The centuries-old trail crosses lush green landscapes as you enter the nature reserve of the Barranco de Los Hombres.
