Description

This route in the Anaga mountains leads you through hamlets and laurel forests from the summit to Tenerife’s coast. 

It starts in Chamorga, the easternmost village on the island. 
From here the trail climbs through the laurel forest to the hamlets of La Cumbrilla and El Lomo de Las Bodegas. 

It then follows the ancient path that once linked the north-eastern part of the Anaga Massif with Igueste de San Andrés, passing through La Atalaya and the hamlet of Las Casillas. We recommend that you take particular care as this section has a steep downhill slope. 

You will finally reach Igueste de San Andrés, a traditional fishing village located about 16 km from the town centre of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Tips

  • 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.
