Stage3: the most alpine stage
This is the most “alpine” stage, riding through the highest area of the island. It isn’t a long stage, but the constant transition between ascents and descents makes it a difficult day.

From Orzola, we come up with tracks and paths to the spectacular Mirador del Rio, an excellent viewpoint on a cliff of almost 500 meters, overlooking La Graciosa Island and the Famara Coast.
We go down the paved road to find the Lz-201 here we continue along the villages of Guinate, Máguez and Haria

we go up again to other beautiful viewpoints over Famara, the one of the village of Haria and Las Peñas from El Chache and the Hermitage of Las Nieves, this will be the highest point of the entire route. Now we have a long descent down the track to Teguise.

Sightseeing:
El Mirador del Río (vue panoramique), avec en toile de fond des paysages volcaniques. le café qui s’y trouve présente l’avantage de permettre une pause très agréable.
Village pittoresque de Haría entouré par d'innombrables palmiers. – Nice lunch break.
Teguise est une charmante petite ville  à l'architecture typique avec de nombreux bars (La Cueva) agréables pour se rafraîchir. Teguise, pretty colonial town with many small shops, where we ate and rested for a while. The convents of San Francisco and Santo Domingo, the stately mansions and the paved streets and squares make this town a very tourist enclave.
Villa Lagomar.
