This hiking trip takes you along a scenic route connecting Santiago del Teide and Masca. Masca is a charming village where traditional houses can be seen dotting the ridge of its dramatic gorge. Unlike the typical track down the Masca gorge, this tour aims to showcase not only Masca but also the beautiful Santiago del Teide and everything in between. Take in the picturesque views as we trace the trail amongst verdant vineyards, fig and almond trees.

The tour begins with hotel pickup. Seat back comfortably in our private van and enjoy the scenery as we drive towards Santiago del Teide. It's difficult to miss the magnificent church of San Fernando Rey as we approach the town centre.

We begin our hiking adventure to Masca from the beautiful Casona del Patio hotel. During the hike, your knowledgeable guide will be sharing interesting facts and stories about the place, as well as history, culture and landmarks.

There will be a moderate ascent before we make a stop at the Cruz de Gala viewpoint. From here you can enjoy an amazing view over the La Laguna valley with the peak of Teide as a backdrop.

Continuing our adventure along the elevated mountain crest towards Cumbre de Masca, we will get to check out the spectacular view below your feet which stretch as far down as the south coast. On a clear day, the silhouettes of the nearby islands of La Gomera, La Palma, and even El Hierro can be observed from here. There's no short of vegetations on this route, from laurisilva forest to eucalyptus and palm trees.

Upon arriving at Masca, there will be free time to explore the pretty village. Alternatively, enjoy the view as you sip a drink in one of the surrounding cafes or restaurants. A 3-course lunch with soft drinks, beer and wine is included in the price.

The duration of the hike is about 3-4 hours, conducted at a relaxing pace. Please allow extra time for pickup, transfer and breaks.

This tour is held in small groups, typically 1 guide to 8 participants.
