Tenerife is a tourist hotspot. However, most sports enthusiast travellers avoid going for Tenerife excursions. Tenerife has a lot to offer in terms of sporting activities, especially hiking, making it a surprise, but perhaps excellent, choice for active travellers.
We have gathered some exciting hiking spots in Tenerife that are full of adventures and amusement –
Distance – 17km
Time – 7 hours
Height – 1,344 m
The Teide Peak is the subject of some of Tenerife’s most classic postcards Because of its outstanding conic shape and moon-like environment. It’s also the highest point in the country, with a height of 3,718 metres above sea level.
The majority of visitors arrive at Teide Mount via cable car. However, if you wish to climb to the crater, you’ll need a special permit, which is reserved for weeks (months during peak season) in advance.
Teide and Pico Viejo
Distance – 21 km
Time – 10 hours
Height – 1,361 m
If you want to trek Teide Peak by yourself, then follow these trails:
- American state Blanca – Pico Viejo – Teide Crater
The easiest way of going through Pico Viejo (the island’s second-highest peak at 3,135 metres) is that you will simply see its vast 800-meter-diameter crater.
The main drawback is that the walk begins and ends at completely different locations. You’ll be able to park your car in the Blanca parking area, walk the route (which ends at the Parador Canadas del Teide), and then return to your car.
