    From Las Indias (Hotel Princess) with a taxi to the El Pilar (45 €, reception bay) the wonderful route hike. Finally via GR 131 to Los Canarias. In the summer at least starting from 09.00 clock on El Pilar, otherwise very hot!

    Take enough drinks with you and be in good physical shape.

    One of the most spectacular hiking trails on the planet. Barren volcanic landscape in contrast to the fresh green of small shrubs and green Canarian pines. Varied views over the island and the sea. Before the hike you should consider that the black lava ground is strongly heated by the sun and this heat radiates again. From noon on, people like to "bake" from two sides - so take enough water with you.

    We hiked from Refugio del Pilar to Martin volcano. The summit is next to the hiking trail, but it is easy to master. From above views to the southern tip of the island, to El Hiero, Gomera and Tenerife.
    From there we hiked back. A total of 23 km, so easy to manage for experienced hikers.

    a wonderful tour through a volcanic landscape and various vegetation zones.
    In Los Canarias there are usually partners to share the taxi to the starting point; about 40 € (2017).
    Because of the partly deep underground, it is advisable to make the tour downhill.
