  • Santa Cruz de Tenerife: 2-Hour Hiking Tour in Anaga Forest

    2. Santa Cruz de Tenerife: 2-Hour Hiking Tour in Anaga Forest

    Explore the beautiful and ancient Laurel Forest and get in contact with the nature on this hiking tour. Take a simple walk without great difficulty and feel and smell the pure air of this laurel forest. If you think of yourself as a novice hiker, or simply want a more relaxed and slow–paced hike, step onto the route through the Anaga Forest. Discover all of life's natural treasures as you amble through the wondrous nature of what was once an isolated territory and see the original Canarian architecture. Wander through a landscape which, millions of years ago, was an independent island separated by the sea from the rest of the insular territory. Even today, it is still considered as a separate world, an island inside another with its own identity.

    La ruta es sencilla, con zonas de sombra y buenas vistas. Angel fue un encanto, puntual, amable, y lleno de historias y anécdotas. Nos llevó por un sendero donde apenas había gente, fue ideal. Lo recomiendo totalmente.

    We extremely recommend this tour of the island. We were the only 2 people attending the tour (very lucky). Angel, our guide and driver, was extremely professional, funny, nice, knowledgeable (a real expert of the canary islands). The tour has been organized perfectly with clear communication and punctuality. Angel has also been super flexible in giving us extra time in places we particularly liked and also in deviating the tour to Anaga forest (after seeing everything about Teide) as that was more interesting for us. He gave us great suggestions to avoid touristic scams during the tour and enjoy authentic canarian places. Also, he was super respectful of covid measures. Well done Angel!!!
