PNT 13.1 Ramal Alto de Sámara


Teide National Park

Ramal Sámara

Difficulty: Medium


A short 360-metre branch at the start of the PNT 13 (Sámara) trail that takes you up to the summit of the Sámara volcano.

From there you will be rewarded with sweeping, spectacular panoramic views of several volcanic cones, as well as Mount Teide and Pico Viejo.


  • Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves. 
  • Pay special attention when crossing or walking along trails used by bicycles, horses or motor vehicles and when walking in ravines with water courses.
  • Avoid direct encounters with potentially dangerous animals, such as livestock, beehives, and dogs. 
  • Proceed with caution and watch for obstacles, loose rocks, uneven terrain or steep slopes to avoid accidents and falls.
  • Check out our guide to hiking in Tenerife and, if necessary, contact the emergency services by calling 112.
