A very scenic rural walk from Santiago del Teide involving a moderate ascent, and taking in fine views of Valle de Arriba, Teide and the Teno mountains. The walk takes you to a shrine which marks the place where the flow of lava from the Chinyero eruption stopped in 1909.
This easy walk in the Teide National Park runs close to a huge lava field. There are opportunities to enjoy stunning views of surrounding mountains and the hillside immediately above you. In May and June expect to see some marvellous examples of the Tajinaste Rojo in flower.
Duration: 3 hours.
