Walk the Masca Gorge

Highlights

The Masca Gorge is one of the most popular walks on Tenerife. Upon arrival we pause briefly to take in the picturesque village, before descending deep into the Masca Gorge. We follow a river lined with lush vegetation and endemic plants down the valley towards the sea. The steep walls of the gorge tower above us, rising several hundred metres on either side.

After between 3 and 4 hours we emerge at the rocky beach where there is time for a quick swim in the sea before the boat arrives to pick us up. Our skipper takes us on a short cruise back along the cliffs to Los Gigantes.

Distance: 8.5km | Descent: 600m
