Breathe 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.
Gateway to the largest forest on Tenerife, La Esperanza will impress with green pines, cypresses and eucalyptus trees, some of which can 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 García)
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.

Andreas has tons of knowledge of the underwater world. This active Swede has been Xwandering around the world and even has an instructors license for Flyboarding!
I did not know what to expect, but I was really blown away by the clear water and colorful fish life. The guides were so friendly and patient with me.... read more Gave lots of info about the fish we saw and took very well care of me the whole day. I would really recommend anyone visiting Tenerife to go for a dive and Xwander is for sure the company to go with if you want the best service! Didn't see any turtles this time, but fingers crossed for next time! I would definitely come back and do it again.
We had a hiking trip in the tenerife mountains. It was well organized, staff took well care of us and they had a good flow and interesting information of small... read more details during the hike!
Tenerife is just not the beach life, the mountains gives you a nice variety when you are getting bored on the beach!
For those staying in the North of Tenerife, these guys are the ones to go to, to book your activities! Marcus and Benjamin were more than helpful and led a... read more fantastic day full of fun and laughter. Not only were we get picked up from our apartments and dropped back to the door;the guys also had rolls,fruit and plently of drinks. Photos were also taken which was included in the price!! Reasonably priced and hell of a lot cheaper than most options on get your guide!
I booked three different activities (Whale watching, kayaking, horseriding) for the last week of July, under a week before I emailed to enquire about how to pay by card, at... read more which point I was told the "company was going through changes" and the kayaking & horse riding were cancelled, but the whale watching "should still be going ahead".
Two days later I was emailed to say the whale watching was now cancelled as well.
They have since then cited staff sickness and the fact the last week of July is "low season" as the reason for this (not even lack of bookings which would be more understandable). The fact is they took no steps to notify me the activities were now cancelled (still available to book now on their website incidentally) isn't confidence building. I have a feeling I would've only found out about the cancellations at last minute if I'd not emailed them.
They did respond to me after I commented on facebook to get in touch and they could help put me in touch with other operators, but I have a feeling this is only because I left a public comment.
Very disappointed - their activities looked great with great selections, but that's no use if they don't actually happen.
Probably the best holiday excursion we have been on. Janika was a great guide and we had a superb meal and wine at the vineyard. A relaxed and highly enjoyable... read more day Highly recommended .. Perry and Kay Bayliss
