Difficulty: Low


On this route, discover the essence of Teno Alto: a place frozen in time, with a rural character that has been preserved for centuries.  

In order to differentiate it from the Massif and the Rural Park that take its name, this enclave is known as Teno Alto, although its inhabitants still refer to it as Teno.

Pastures, bleating animals, handmade roof tiles, tree heath and reeds will tell the story of traditions and ways of living that enrich the legacy of our island.

This trail will immerse you in the natural and cultural heritage of Teno Rural Park, awakening your senses with its contrasts and nuances. 


  • 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.
