Hiking in the National Park – Caldera de Taburiente
The Caldera de Taburiente is one of the largest erosion craters in the world. It is located right in the centre of the island, made up of a circle of mountains nearly 2.500 m high. The highest peaks drop vertically up to 1.000 m into the crater.
This is the only opportunity to hike inside of our National Park. We start at the highest point of the day; 1.081 m and we gradually go down until the end of the hike. The first part is simply incredible; with amazing views all the way until we reach the centre of this impressive erosion crater. We continue down until the ravine bed, always overlooked by Idafe, “the holly rock” from our ancestor, and after a visit to the waterfall Cascada de Colores, we hike the long way out along the river bed, where water will show us the best way out.
