Guajara to Vilaflor

Highlights

Leaving from Las Cañadas in the National Park to climb Guajara, at 2715m its the 4th highest summit on the island and rises like a giant turret behind the National Park’s visitor centre. We make our ascent to the summit over the course of about 2 hours where we enjoy spectacular views of Teide, Las Cañadas and the south coast of the island.

We descend via a good path into the pine forests. Our next objective is nestled in an untouched valley, where we find a spectacular pumice formation which has been cut by wind and rain, to create what some describe as a bit of moonscape here on earth.

From here we walk out through the forests along paths lined with spring flowers to the town of Vilaflor, where we are met by our driver. As we return to the coast by bus we stop at a local vineyard to sample wine.

Distance: 16km | Ascent/Descent: 565m/1200m
