Description

Ramón el Caminero Campsite is located at an altitude of over 1,500 metres on the northern slopes of the island, offering regular views of the sea of clouds that covers the northern part of Tenerife like a white blanket.

The main feature of this recreational area is the Canary Island pine forest, accompanied by tagasaste (Cytisusproliferus), codeso (Adenocarpusfoliolosus), jara (Cistus symphytifolius), chahorra (Sideritiscanariensis), corazoncillo (Lotus campylocladus), tomillo (Micromeriahyssopifolia) and, when in season, by various kinds of mushroom. Wildlife includes blue chaffinches and woodpeckers boring into the oldest trunks.

The area is situated just off the main road.

There are waymarked routes for cycling, horse riding or motor vehicles that start and finish here.

The camping area adjoins the recreational area offering a range of services.

Tips

  • Enjoy the local plant and animal life without disturbing it. Be curious but from a safe and respectful distance.
  • Follow the rules and instructions on the signs to avoid disturbance to people and animals.
  • Keep the environment clean and leave no litter behind. Rubbish and cigarette butts must be disposed of in the designated containers.
  • Travel in small groups to keep noise pollution and the impact on the environment to a minimum.  
  • Use the water in the toilets and taps responsibly. Water is a scarce and precious commodity on our island.
