Montaņa Blanca

Highlights

Montaņa Blanca (2750m) is Tenerife's 3rd highest peak, but on balance its one of the easiest summits to claim. Our ascent takes along a well trodden dirt track so the ascent is not technically challenging.

The landscape is a stunning contrast of yellow and white pumice interspersed with rocky outcrops and lava flows. We enjoy amazing views of the north side of the national park and from the from the summit uninterrupted views of the Las Caņadas caldera.

Descending we walk through the desert scrub towards the visitor centre at El Portillo, Along the way we may see some the island's largest lizards (up to 30cm in length) together with rare beetles and other endemic invertebrates.

Distance: 15km | Ascent/Descent: 350m/750m
