Top 6 Walking Trails in the Canary Islands

Roque de Los Muchachos, La Palma: Rising almost 2500m above La Palma, Roque de Los Muchachos is a rugged peak that juts out over one of the world’s largest volcanic craters. As you hike along the crater rim, picturesque subalpine landscapes open up, presenting uninterrupted views across La Palma and the Canary Islands. On a clear day, you can see right over to Tenerife’s Mount Teide. At certain points on the walk, you can even peer inside the caldera.  

Cumbre de Bolico Ridge, Tenerife: Teno Rural Park is located  northwest of Tenerife and is popular among travellers wanting to explore the natural world on their holidays to the Canary Islands. Home to sweet-smelling laurel forests, coastal cliffs and a mountainous massif, the park plays host to an array of wonderful birds, lizards and various other species of animals. Following ancient shepherd’s trails through the undulating terrain, the walk up to the Cumbre de Bolico Ridge presents you with dramatic views across the Atlantic Ocean and Mount Teide. Descending from the ridge walk, you’ll pass traditional farmsteads on the way down to Masca village.

La Ruta de Los Volcanes, La Palma: Our walking holidays to the Canary Islands wouldn’t be complete without a trek along the famous La Ruta de Los Volcanes (volcano route). Starting from Refugio del Pilar, the trail winds through pine forests and vineyards, passing volcanic craters and lava landscapes en route. With any luck you’ll spot some of the local birdlife such as kestrels and rooks along the way.

Camino Real de Chasna, Tenerife: Spanning the north and south of Tenerife, the Camino Real de Chasna is a fantastic walk that guides you along old shepherd’s paths and through dense pine forests to Paisaje Lunar, or the Moon Landscape as it’s often referred to. Carved out by volcanic eruptions, these geological formations draw walkers from around the world. The trek continues to the summit of Mount Guarjara where you’re rewarded with sublime views that stretch across the Canaries.

Teide National Park, Tenerife: Home to the majestic Mount Teide and other ancient volcanoes, Teide National Park is filled with walking trails that showcase some of Tenerife’s most beautiful and dramatic scenery. An exhilarating trek to the peak of Samara volcano, which stands 2000m above sea level, takes you on an awe-inspiring journey of discovery that will enhance your holiday. From the summit you can soak up staggering views of El Teide and beyond to Pico Viejo.

Camino Real de la Costa GR130, La Palma: Arguably the most famous hiking trail in La Palma, and perhaps even the Canary Islands, the Camino Real de la Costa, also known as GR130, links some of the island’s most integral villages. This long-distance coastal path runs through La Palma and steers you among beautiful landscapes speckled with vineyards, banana plantations, citrus groves and mango orchards before finally arriving at the colonial town of San Andrés. If the colourful fruit-strewn scenery doesn’t capture your attention, the coastal views certainly will.
