Description

Our tour begins at your hotel where one of our guides will pick you up for the ride towards Erjos. 

At the agricultural mountain village of Erjos we start our hike from the local cafe and head towards Teno range, passing by Charcos de Erjos: a rare wetlands which are a delight for bird observers. Then up to Cruz de Gala mountain pass alternating northern laurisilva forest with southern Canarian pine forest. 

From there along the Masca ridge towards El Bolico, this upper part path goes through forests mostly, so it is very good for hot seasons. There are stunning views over the Masca gorges to the Atlantic with La Gomera and La Palma islands in the background.

Descending towards the small agricultural village of Las Portelas the hike ends at a local farmhouse, where we may try some local products. The hike may take 3-4 hours to complete.From there we go by road to the historical colonial town of Garachico.

Here we will have some time to explore, enjoy the many terraces or visit the scars left by the volcanic eruption that destroyed the town in 1706
