Description

Las Calderetas Recreational Area is located at an altitude of 1,000 metres on the northern slopes of the island, in an area bathed by cool, moist trade winds, which explains the frequent mist and low temperatures.

This is a setting where forest restoration work has been undertaken to increase biodiversity, enrich the landscape and improve the natural value of the area by replacing introduced species, such as Monterey pine (Pinus radiata), with monteverde vegetation, such as faya (Morella faya), acebiño (Ilex canariensis), hija (Prunus lusitanica, also called Portugal laurel) and tree heath (Erica arborea).

The area is very popular due to its proximity to the centre of Ravelo, its easy access via asphalt roads and its waymarked routes where you can start or finish your trips on foot, by bicycle, horseback or motor vehicle.

It has an environmental information and interpretation point, and an adjoining campsite for pitching tents.

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.
