Detailed description

Wonderfull day trip from the south of Tenerife to El Hierro

Becoming familiar with the most westerly of the Canary Islands, the El Hierro day trip from the south of Tenerife is a highly organised excursion alongside an experienced guide. El Hierro is admirably wild, lonely and authentic, and for many the epitome of the early Canaries. The way the small island with its varied landscapes welcomes visitors to this day is how it looked a long time ago, more or less on all Canary Islands. This very pristine image makes El Hierro a perfect place for a break and a natural paradise worthy of protection in the rank of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We would like to show you as much of El Hierro as possible during the day trip from Tenerife South, knowing full well that the trip will be a long day, lasting around 12 hours. However, in our opinion, every minute of it is worth it. For the El Hierro day tour, we have put together a route with 7 interesting stops, the most important waymarks and the most beautiful viewpoints of the island, which turn the idea of vastness into reality. Plus a motivated and experienced guide who will introduce you to the island like a friend.

By ferry from Los Cristianos in the south of Tenerife, the crossing to El Hierro takes around 2.5 hours. A good opportunity to cross the Atlantic and see more of the island world. From Puerto de la Estaca we take a minivan or air-conditioned coach (depending on booking) on a tour of the island to the west coast. We stop at the viewpoints of Isora, Jinama and La Pena, visit the famous laurel forest and the well-known natural swimming pool La Maceta. The Punta Grande House, listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the smallest hotel, should also not be missed on an El Hierro tour. The same applies to a tasting of the famous quesadillas in Valverde.
