Impressive volcanoes, mystical cloud forests and black lava deserts – Tenerife is a paradise for hikers. The island has amazingly diverse landscapes considering its small size. We will lead you through quiet laurel forests to remote dream beaches, traditional villages, and up to Spain’s highest peak, the eye-catching Teide Mountain (12,198 ft), which rises from the centre of the island. With an annual average temperature of 23 degrees and a constant cool breeze, Tenerife is the perfect location for hiking adventures.

In this Collection, you will find 15 routes spread across all corners of the island.
Find peace in the forests of the Anaga Mountains, hike through rocky gorges such as the Barranco de Roque Bermejo or enjoy fantastic panoramas from the Cruz del Carmen viewpoint. Let yourself be enchanted by the wild Atlantic coast at Taganana or discover the bizarre lunar landscape of the Montaña Negra. A special highlight is the ascent of the Pico del Teide Mountain with an overnight stay below the summit.

You can reach the start and end points of the hikes by rental car or bus. You can find more information in the stage descriptions and here: titsa.com/index.php. We recommend bringing sufficient water and sun protection as well as warm, water-repellent clothing even in the summer months. This way you are well prepared for the diverse landscapes and climate zones of Tenerife and can enjoy your hiking adventure to the fullest.
