Insider tip: Adventure panorama hike - Cascades to the water gallery

Extension of secret tip 1 with adventurous ascent and walk in the water tunnel.

Very varied, many highlights over hill and dale. Water cascade, walk through a water tunnel; reminiscent of Masca in the past, lava rock faces, lush greenery with streams, ...

... For many, THE hike on Tenerife! A hike could hardly be more varied, surprising and entertaining. First part like secret tip 1, bathing clothes and bathing shoes* should be brought along for us, but then it really gets going! On steeply ascending, relatively impassable, ancient farm paths, past old "fields" and buildings to a water tunnel. IN the tunnel 700 m through the tunnel. Passing an old settlement, the trail descends to the starting point. Even here, the beautiful views compensate for the easy but about 1 hour long descent.

!Please be sure to observe the safety instructions and requirements!!

Suggestions for YOUR day

This is what YOUR day could look like:

Pick up at the hotel, amusing drive (approx. 1 h), short stop in a typical local bar, Hiking part 1, up to the cascade: (see insider tip 1 ) Optional climbing/swimming in the cascade, don’t forget bathing suit and bathing shoes*. Even if the water is a bit cool, still very refreshing. Hiking Hiking part 2, cascade to water tunnel: the most strenuous part of the hike, but the experience and the views compensate. From the "dilapidated building" there are 2 options, further up over the mountain ridge or -our variant- just a little higher, along rock walls and through the forest down again to a water channel. You could be forgiven for thinking we were in a (German) mountain range. Lush greenery, a stream with flowing water - for Tenerife this is madness and even for many locals hardly imaginable. Hiking Hiking part 3: 700 metres in the water through the water tunnel!!! Hiking Hiking part 4: Water tunnel to the starting point.
