Santa Cruz de Tenerife: 2-Hour Hiking Tour in Anaga Forest
- Pickup available
- Duration: 2 hours
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.
Start with pickup form Playa de las Américas, and first visit the town of San Cristóbal de La Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site steeped in tradition, legends, and beauty. See the many churches, historical buildings, and charming streets of a town described as the "Florence of the Canary Islands". Then, make your way to Anaga, a volcanic rock formation that is between 7 and 9 million years old. Explore the area's landscapes which are adorned with geological formations such as roques, or old volcanic chimneys and dikes, which are fractures filled with solidified magma forming sheets of rock that look like walls. See beautiful cliff faces and deep ravines. Explore the nearby forests of laurel and dragon trees before returning back to your accommodation.

Excellent hike, if you really want to be one with nature this is definitely a great option. Aswell as being a nice easy hike for beginners or if you just want to take it a bit easy. Ángel our tour guide was amazing, he really knew his stuff and was able to make reasonable adjustments as well as being really attentive and ensuring we were safe the whole way. Also offered suggestions of places to visit locally and across Tenerife.
We had a wonderful hike with Alberto, who told us sooooooo much about the country and its people, flora and fauna. A very, very nice man with whom you can have a lot of fun. I can only recommend it. The route was manageable even with sneakers. Nevertheless, Alberto had a walking stick for everyone to support. From us: all thumbs up!
I had a great time on my hike through Anaga. My guide, Angel, was really knowledgeable about the forest and had lots of interesting facts and stories to tell. We went on a route that avoided the main areas, so it was very quiet, a great opportunity to really appreciate the forest.
Fantastic kick! Anaga makes it easy because he is impressive but Ángel is an incredible guide. He adapted to us and gave us a luxurious night walk. If we return to Tenerife, we will call you insurance for another.
Very pleasant tour guide and driver. Nice little group.
