Hiking in Tenerife, Anaga and Arona

Here is the last part of my post about Tenerife for now!

On the last two days of our hiking trip we did hikes in Anaga and from Arona to Ifonche. Anaga is a very nice place and the best thing is, that you can end many of the hikes to the sea. There’s nothing better than a swim after a day of hiking.

Hiking in Anaga

Anaga is one of the oldest parts of the island of Tenerife. This is one of the three places where the volcanic island rose from the sea at first. This means that the it is steep with deep canyons. It is a challenging place to hike because of the big height differences, but it is also beautiful.

Anaga is a great place to hike

It is hard to capture the beauty of the landscape in pictures. For me it is really hard to imagine, that we are in Tenerife looking at the scenery in Anaga.

Old farm house on the from Arona to Ifonche

Our last day of hiking was from Arona to Ifonche. It is short hike in the south of the island. Looking down towards the sea you can see the big tourist destinations of Las Americas and Los Christianos. Still on the path you feel, that you are somewhere else.

The path down to Arona

It was a very warm day to hike on the southside of Tenerife. Luckily it was quite windy, which made hiking so much nicer. Here we are almost in the village Ifonche and you can see the coast.

Old wine press in Bodega Reverón

After our hike we visited a local wine farm, Bodega Reverón. It is a very nice place and it was great to get to taste some of the local wines.

For the whole week the weather was warm and it didn’t rain at all. So we were very lucky. No back in Finland you really miss the warm and the sun. Especially as I am in Lapland, where the sun doesn’t come up at all. Luckily I will go back to the Canary Islands in a week. This time to Gran Canaria.
