This route through the lower part of La Orotava will take you back in time to our original monteverde landscapes.

After years of intensive agricultural use by local residents, the Island Council decided to regulate the monteverde forest in this area to allow for its recovery and the sustainable use of the island’s natural resources. 

As a result, you can now enjoy this restored natural environment today. Dense woodland intermingles with cool natural canopies and sections that open out to impressive views of the slopes of La Resbala.

IBP Index: 2.


  • Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves.

  • Avoid direct encounters with potentially dangerous animals, such as livestock, beehives, and dogs.
