Hike in the historical scenery of Tacoronte
Hike & Wine – Tacoronte
Guided tour through the historical Menceyato de Tacoronte municipality, leading hikers to the wine cellars of Bodegas Monje in El Sauzal.
The hiking route travels through Menceyato de Tacoronte – A historic municipality dating back to the 15th-century Spanish invasion of the Canary Islands. The hikers will get to know about local history and the fate of the indigenous Guanche people along the trail.
Get to know the different winemaking stages on the rustic Monje winery along with the tasting of the finished product. The Monje family has been cultivating grapevines for five generations and is specialized in red wines made from Listán Negro and Negramoll grapes.
Hike & Wine – Santiago del Teide
Explore the unspoiled landscape in rural Santiago del Teide and taste local wines on this guided tour.
The circular route travels through the village of Valle de Ariba, passing many vineyards and fields with fig and almond trees along the way. A moderate ascent from the village is rewarded with fantastic views of Mount Teide along with several smaller volcanic mountains in the horizon. We continue towards El Calvario de los Baldios, a shrine which marks the place where lava from the island’s last volcanic eruption stopped in 1909. The scenery is at its absolute best from late January to early March when the almond trees are in full bloom, adding spectacular splashes of color to the surrounding scenery.
Arriving back to Santiago del Teide, we carry on to the nearby Bodega where we get to sample locally produced wine together with gofio (a type of traditional Canarian dish), followed by lunch.
We pick our adventurers up from their hotels, take them to Tacoronte and continue on foot towards the Monje Winery in El Sauzal
