Detailed description

A very special trekking tour in Tenerife: Anaga hike through laurel forest to Chinamada

On this guided hike through the Anaga Mountains in Tenerife, you will not only immerse yourself in the exciting history of the Canary Islands, but also get to know the fairytale, primeval laurel forest. The hike from Puerto de la Cruz starts with a transfer to the starting point. A local hiking guide will pick you up at the hotel or a nearby meeting point and take you to the departure point of the hike in the Anaga Mountains. The hiking tour takes about 3.5 hours depending on the group pace and includes breaks. During the hike, you will have numerous beautiful panoramic views over the Anaga Mountains, which have been designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve because of their uniqueness.

This natural park includes a variety of geological forms and an attractive coastline with robust rocks and very steep gorges. The laurel forest, a living fossil that has survived for 40 million years, is another unforgettable and unique feature of this region. A walk through the laurel forest of Tenerife is like a journey through the jungle. The inhabitants of the Anaga Nature Park devote themselves mainly to agriculture and cultivate sweet potatoes, potatoes, yams, vines and fruit.

The Anaga trekking doesn't only lead you through the dense, vibrantly green vegetation of the forest, but also to the no less enchanted mountain village of Chinamada. Time seems to have stood still at 600 metres. Even today the people here live in caves or cave-like houses. The Blcik is intoxicating over the mountains to the sea. The Anaga region is one of the wettest regions of Tenerife, so that a gentle mist regularly covers the laurel forest - feel like in a fairytale forest. A unique hike in Tenerife!
