What you'll do

We'll meet in front of the Cathedral of La Laguna (if you don't have a car) or in Cruz del Carmen (if you do). From there I'll take you down a wonderful forest path down the mountains, where you can admire the lush greenery and the singing birds, and soon enough -because most tourists never venture too far from the road- we'll get to enjoy the silence and the pleasure of being alone with the forest and scenery all for ourselves :) We'll walk for around one hour thirty minutes until we reach El Batan, a small hamlet trapped between the mountains. It's a beautiful place to relax and have a rest, where I can tell you some stories about the island and the local guanche culture while we have our food. If there are kids they can also wonder around (it's safe and there's plenty to explore, including caves and vineyards) while we share even more stories. Once we're on full stomachs again we'll keep exploring the charming village in the middle of the valley and the various points of interest. There's only one bar and all the locals hang out there, so it's a nice place to stop by and get something fresh as a reward for all the walking and sightseeing. The bus back to civilization leaves at 15:50, but if you're still feeling fresh and adventurous you also have the option of staying longer and making your way down to the coast via a beautiful three hour hike that I can show you :)

Santiago

I've worked as a mountain guide for most of my professional life, though I've also studied political science and do freelance writing as well. I've worked as a guide in Patagonia, Norway, Iceland, France and I'm adding Tenerife to that mix! There are some surreal, off the beaten path landscapes here that deserve to be seen by some intrepid travellers.

I'll cover the bus tickets to Anaga and the return trip back to La Laguna

Where you'll be

We'll visit Cruz del Carmen, one of the highest points in the Anaga mountain range that has a great view of La Laguna and the Teide. Then we'll go downhill by the forest and the ravine to El Batan, where the scenery gradually changes from jungle to arid as we walk, and cute small houses, vineyards and terraces dot the landscape. Later we'll picnic at a terrace that has an excellent view of a cave where linen was produced in the old days!

More tips

This is a short hike with families with kids in mind (and people that want to hike and experience nature but don't have much experience yet). It's easy yet very rewarding and you only need comfortable shoes and clothes according to the weather. You'll love it!
