Tenerife’s volcanic origins mean the modern landscape is rich with plenty of unique natural features. From sculptural rock formations to lush greenery, each route offers a new way to explore. At the end of each route, the group rests and enjoys a picnic lunch to take in the natural surroundings. Choose one of the locations below to discover the marvels lying inland.
The route begins in the village of Masca and follows a 4.5 km (2.8 mi) downhill trail full of sweeping views and a fresh sea breeze. You pass through a gorge surrounded by high vertical walls.
