      Highlights of this hike: - jungle-like canyon
      - impressive prospects
      - varied flora & fauna
      - Roque Bermejo
      This hike begins and ends in the dreamy mountain village of Chamorga, which is located at around 500 meters above sea level in the peaks of the Anaga Mountains.The hiking trail starts at the large information board, you can first follow the signs to El Dragillo. The path first leads past idyllic gardens and runs along a gorge, in which water flows down depending on the rainy season.This section of the route is shaped by the Canarian jungle. Lush green trees, mosses and ferns, twirled tree trunks and gnarled trees accompany you uphill for about 200 meters.Note: The first section was unfortunately not correctly recorded by Komoot. Time and speed were not recorded.At the fork above you turn right, you leave the signposted hiking trail (marked with an X). On this section you will pass breathtaking views over the north and south sides of the Anaga Mountains, sometimes right next to very steep gorges (be careful when you approach the edge for the view).The path continues through a juniper grove to the ruins of Casas de Tafada. There you can continue straight ahead to hike over a ridge to the end of the elevation. From there you have a great view over the eastern part of the Anaga Mountains.Back towards the ruins and to the next fork, which is a few meters away from the ruin, the next section of the hiking trail now leads downhill on the left, along a mountain slope. From there you have great views over the gorges and the mountain village of Chamorga.Shortly before the village you will pass Roque Bermejo, an impressive rock needle that towers over the mountain village of Chamorga.The last section of the hiking route takes you again along the mountain slope, past very impressive rocks and caves. The flora there is characterized by succulents and milkweed plants.Once in the village you can relax from your hike in the small restaurant Casa Álvaro and review the impressions with a cafecito or Canarian stew.A few more steps through the beautiful mountain village and you have arrived back at the starting point of your hike.Equipment tips: Hiking sticks and non-slip shoes are recommended. As clouds can quickly come up at these heights, it is very advisable to bring warm clothing with you. The rapid changes in the weather should not be underestimated.

      La Palma is probably our favorite island and Tenerife is also great, but at the beginning of June we will go to La Gomera
      Don't you have one or two tips on what to hike ?!

      DONATION HIKEToday we hiked through our laurel forest 🥾 to collect kilometers for our donation hike. It was not only over hill and dale, but also through mud and slippery leaves 🍂.Our laurel forest is a real cloud forest and super humid. Today the clouds did not move through the branches, but we could perceive the moisture with all our senses. Just great. 🤩

      Highlights of this hike:View over Icod de los Vinos
      colorful flora and 1,000 fragrances
      rustic fruit and vegetable gardens
      Drinking water fountain
      This hike begins and ends in the cute village of La Vega, which is located above the town of Icod de los Vinos at an altitude of approx. 600 meters.The hiking trail begins at the typical Canarian village church of San Bernabé. The next side street leads you mercilessly up the mountain for the first 30 minutes, past houses and gardens.The actual hiking trail, which is signposted there, begins at the fork above. The climb was worth it, because there you are in the middle of nature, above the small villages and with beautiful views over the valley of Icod de los Vinos.Highlight: The climate in this region is mild and humid, which means that numerous plants grow there, so that many different colorful flowers shape the landscape.The hiking trail crosses on a road where you will find a Fuente (fountain). There you can fill up your water bottle and walk past goats back to the country lane.Interesting: There is no natural water resource in the Canary Islands, but in the humid regions like this one, trees milk the clouds, the water flows into the mountain and is stored in natural galleries. There are few water sources in the Canary Islands, one of which is the Fuente de la Vega. The locals still prefer to get their drinking water there than in the supermarket.You pass a homestead with goats and then enter the next section.Shrubs and trees grow idyllically there, the scent of nature is constantly changing. Make sure you take the time to try it out =)You walk through a small eucalyptus forest and cross a small Canarian pine forest. The landscape changes every few meters, so the hike remains very varied. If possible, take a trip to small villages.Note: the PR-TF 42 hiking trail runs along the entire region of Icod de los Vinos and can be started from several places. We went there and back, but you can also take a bus or taxi back to the start from the destination.

      I love my home! I run this lap almost every evening and enjoy the view over the mountains, the sea and the sunset.The round is very varied and challenging, because it goes up and down. Part of the route leads past fincas and small plantations, where I greet the chickens in the tree every day. The other part leads through the village of Bajamar, past colorful houses and the large natural pools. If I feel like refreshing myself, I like to jump into the sea after my lap.

      This hike starts and ends in Igueste de San Andrés, where you can park along the road. The hike starts at the village church.The hiking trail starts immediately interesting, because the village, which is located in the gorge of the same name, is an absolute eye-catcher. There, where the clocks tick slowly and the residents grow their fruit and vegetables along the gorge, there is a great atmosphere.As soon as you leave the paved path towards the mountain, it goes high - good conditions are required. Uphill you always have a fantastic view over Igueste de San Andrés and the pointed green mountains, the peaks of which are shrouded in clouds on some days. You will not lose sight of the sea during the entire hike.At the junction towards Semáforo you can either continue left towards the mountain, or take a 30-minute detour to an abandoned maritime signal station. From there you have a great view over the Punta de Antequera and the secluded beach that goes with it.On the ridge, the path leads towards the mountains to the right along the ridge, past a hut, you come to a region where grasses and many meadow flowers grow.Highlight: From the ridge you have a great view of both gorges, the surrounding mountains and of course the ocean.The path leads you further below the ridge, past a junction that leads to Punta de Antequera. The trail ends at the point where it goes to the other side of the mountain. Turn around once and enjoy the route from a new perspective.Highlights of this hike: - View over Igueste
      - View over the cliffs and the Punta de Antequera
      - colorful flora
      - abandoned maritime signal station

      This circular hike begins and ends in Villaverde. You can drive to the beginning of the hiking trail and park there, or you can extend the route through the village.The hiking trail starts immediately interesting, because the countless lava rocks cover the entire ground, which makes the landscape look unique. The lava rocks are all overgrown with a type of green lichen that clearly shapes the landscape.Up high it goes straight to the first volcano, the Montaña de los Saltos. At the summit you have a great view and a look into the crater.Highlight: Protected bird species nest on this volcano. With time and binoculars, bird watchers will definitely get their money's worth.The path leads you further on the eastern flank of the larger volcano and impresses with the countless green lava rocks and interesting rock formations. On this section you can easily see where the lava flowed to about 10,000 years ago. You can expect an impressive panoramic view as far as Lanzarote.Highlight: Small but nice - on the Mal País (bad land) you can see numerous colorful plants on closer inspection.You circle the volcano to the south side, where the mountain shows its black side. The subsoil also changes and turns into rubble, the path partly runs over narrow paths along the slope. When you arrive at the edge of the crater, you have a magnificent view of the impressive crater.On the way to the summit, you will also notice the surrounding volcanoes, some of which are perfect cones. The famous Montaña de Tindaya can also be seen from up there.Highlights of this hike: - interesting lava rocks
      - two volcanoes in one go
      - colorful flora
      - View from the crater rim

      This circular hike begins and ends at the parking lot at Playa de Cofete, where you can first tie your hiking boots to your backpack. The first 3 kilometers along the beach are barefoot until a hill blocks the way.There you can either walk over the lava rocks along the water's edge, which we would only recommend at low tide. But you can also take the path over the hill, but there is no beaten path there, so you go cross-country and then look for a way down as well. The hill is not very high and there are some places that are not very steep so it is easy to cross.You have reached the last section of the beach and can already see the Roque del Moro standing in the water.Highlight: There are several charcos (natural pools) on the bank behind the hill where you can refresh yourself.Attention! Please do not go into the sea anywhere on the entire coast of Cofete, not even knee-deep. The currents are extremely strong and while the water looks inviting, the undercurrents are invisible and dangerous. Many tourists drowned there.The path to Roque del Morro continues along the beach, where you can walk barefoot in the surf. At the end you will find interesting rock formations, witnesses from the times when the volcanoes on Fuerteventura were still active.The path now goes back towards the hill and Charcos, past petrified sand cliffs and a rock with curved lines that give an idea of contemporary history and the force of nature.In a gorge just before the Charcos, you continue inland, where the next highlights are waiting for you.Marked by the weather, this gorge is constantly changing. A few years ago it was still possible to drive on it by car, today it is impossible. Fascinating how lively and changeable nature is.In this gorge you will pass numerous rock formations that will fascinate you. Enjoy the wonders of nature.Once at the top, you follow the gravel road towards Cofete (left) and can take a break in the restaurant in the village. From there, your destination is only a stone's throw away.Highlights of this hike:1) interesting rock formations
      2) the Roque del Moro
      3) walking barefoot in the surf
      4) Charcos (natural pools) for swimming at low tide
