Group Tour

Anaga is a highland of mountains with sharp peaks and deep ravines covered with carpets of laurel trees (also called laurisilva) and dotted with charming hamlets. Exploring Anaga is a journey to a place that has an authentic rural flavour, a journey back in time to when the relationship between humans and their natural surroundings was much stronger. Discover this little paradise with your knowledgeable local guide in a small group.

Itinerary Details

Itinerary

From La Laguna we will take the public bus to reach the starting point of our hike. We hike on forest trails through Anaga Rural Park, where you will see the scenery and the way of life of this naturally isolated area. Its mountains are volcanic, formed by an eruption about 7 to 9 million years ago. It is now both a protected "Rural Park" and a UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere Reserve. The area is home to mammoth plants which don’t exist anywhere else on the planet. A diversified wildlife including more than 120 local endemic species. Some of the best examples of the Canary Islands' ecosystems are to be found among the natural habitats in Anaga. Laurel trees loads of moss, lichen and lianas will make you feel like you are exploring somewhere far more exotic than Tenerife! The area is also a haven for birds and butterflies...

As the oldest part of the island of Tenerife, Anaga has so much to offer those seeking to get off the beaten track. We will pass close to an indigenous hamlet where the ancient inhabitants of Tenerife lived. Optionally, we can finish in a typical local restaurant (not included in the price). We will return by public bus to the central bus station in La Laguna.
