Enchanted Forest and Lakes
This picturesque alpine hike explores a high undulating ridge with some short steep ascents that offers panoramic views of the Laurel forest.
We then follow a path deep into the sub-tropical rain forest where hanging lichen and mosses abound. This is without doubt one of the most important eco-systems on the island.
Then, just like magic, open countryside appears where we are given the most spectacular panoramic view the island of Tenerife has to offer.
For the next 45 minutes or so, we are looking down on the Masca gorge and the surrounding volcanic landscape. On a clear day, the finale is a fabulous view of Mount Teide looming in the distance across the Santiago valley and the lava fields high above.
Our hike then continues on easy footpaths through Pine forest and descends majestically into a valley which is reminiscent of the English countryside.
