Join Xwander as we explore Tenerife’s breathtaking landscape on a scenic trail running adventure

Join Xwander as we explore Tenerife’s breathtaking landscape on a scenic trail running adventure. Choose to take part in a small group or book a private trail running experience.

With its sunny climate and plenty of unspoilt nature, Tenerife is the perfect destination for trail running all year round. If you fancy getting some exercise while enjoying the island’s unique beauty, why not join our friendly guides for a run across some of the most scenic trails Tenerife has to offer?

Choose to take part in a group of trail runners or book a private tour, tailored just for you.

Choose your route from the following options:

La Caldera

Breath in the fresh air and enjoy the scenery on the winding trails that make their way across this thick pine forest. The trails are varied enough to challenge all levels of runners with terrific views of La Orotava valley down below and Mt. Teide on the horizon.

La Esperanza

Gateway to the largest forest on Tenerife, La Esperanza will impress with green pines, cypresses and eucalyptus trees, some of which soar as high as 40 metres. The forest paths are occasionally interrupted by natural viewpoints, giving the area its well deserved reputation as a firm favourite among hikers and runners from near and far.


Get mesmerized by the natural beauty of magical Anaga as you make your way across ancient paths surrounded by lush laurisilva trees. The geologically rich area offers naturally varied terrain while playing host to a significant diversity of wildlife including reptiles and birds. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or beginner, we’re sure you’re going to love these trails.

Teide National Park (Roques de Garcia)

The trails crisscrossing in Teide National Park are a real treat for runners to explore. The volcanic landscape comprised of hundreds of bizarre rock formations is so out of this world, you could easily think you’re running on the moon. The high altitude combined with heat and humidity makes it a perfect run for anyone looking for a bit of a challenge.


We pick up our runners from the hotel and take them to the meeting point depending on the chosen trail


Do I need a high level of previous trail running experience to participate?

We try our best to adapt each trail running session to the experience and fitness level of the participants. Therefore, no previous trail running experience is necessary. However, you should be reasonably fit and healthy.

I already have some experience with trail running. Will I be able to run at my own level?

Of course! Our aim is to adapt our runs to individual goals and objectives. Whether you want to enjoy a nice, relaxed day of running the best trails in Tenerife without any pressure, or you’re after running in high altitude in order to prepare yourself for your next ultra marathon, we have the route and the training session for you. Anything is possible.

What is the minimum age to participate?

The minimum age to participate is 14 years old.

What do I need to bring with me?

You should wear comfortable sports clothing and proper running shoes; and don’t forget sunglasses sunblock.

Depending on weather conditions and the location, warm and light-weight running clothes may be required.

Are meals available?

A full meal isn’t provided, but we’ll bring along snacks and drinks.

Alternative activities and games for children in La Caldera and La Esperanza are also available
