Description

This camp is located at an altitude of over 1500 m above sea level next to one of the largest natural dry pine forests in the Canary Islands. 

It is a dry, open forest, typical of the south-facing slopes of Tenerife, comprising trees with irregular crowns that can attain great dimensions. Birds such as the blue chaffinch and the great spotted woodpecker, the most representative species of this area, nest in its trunks and branches. 

The landscape around the camp features a number of striking geographic curiosities. The most impressive landmarks include the nearby ravine named Barranco del Río, one of the deepest gorges on the island. Also of note is a small patch of remarkable volcanic terrain hidden in the bed of Barranco de Las Arenas: Los Escurriales, best known as the Lunar Landscape.
