Hiking in Tenerife

The mild climate year-round and the varied landscape between the coastlines, the Anaga and Teno mountains and the black lava fields around the Pico del Teide make Tenerife a popular destination for anyone looking for hiking adventures. The routes lead through amazing gorges like the Masca Gorge, past pretty mountain villages, along the wild Atlantic coast or jagged mountain peaks.
