Use of the recreational areas is permitted during daylight hours only (between sunrise and sunset).


Chanajiga Recreational Area is located at an altitude of 1,184 metres on the northern slopes of the island, and is bathed by the cool, damp trade winds, so mist and low temperatures are very common.

The landscape is one of the best examples of Tenerife’s monteverde woodland, both in terms of size and biodiversity, and contains a wide diversity of plant species.

Vehicle access to the area is via dirt tracks. 

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


  • 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.

Recommendations and tips


  • Compulsory authorisation via this link for groups organised by associations, schools or businesses. This is to protect the natural environment and ensure that the maximum capacity of the recreational area is not exceeded.
