At 5km, with a very manageable overall ascent of 172m, this is a very accessible walk, close to the resorts and residential areas in the S of Tenerife. There are great views of the countryside and many close-by towns, but particularly of the grand and rugged volcanic landscape.
Duration: 2 hours Continue reading “(102) Buzanada-Camino Luciano Circular (Arona)”
This is an enjoyable walk in the rural landscape above the historic town of Arona. A fairly steep ascent of 350 m is followed by a level traverse with wonderful views down to the coast. An ancient shrine kicks off a very scenic descent through terraced farmland.
Duration: 3.5 hours Continue reading “(91) Arona-Las Casas-Altavista-La Hondura-Tunéz Circular (Arona)”
This is a deceptively energetic hike, with many ups and downs, giving an overall ascent of 400+ m over 8.2 km. Since Los Cristianos is one of the sunniest parts of Tenerife, it makes a good choice, giving clear, open views, when the higher areas of the island are under cloud.

This walk, encircling the imposing pinnacle of Roque Imoque, near Ifonche, has some very special views. There is a constant, gradual ascent to the turning point overlooking Barranco Fañabe at 977 m high. Echoes of rural life from times gone by are everywhere along the route.

From a modest and unassuming start-point in Aldea Blanca, this soon becomes a very scenic and interesting walk, much of it on an ancient track that connected both Guanche and Spanish communities in times past.
