#2 of 11 in Trails in Tenerife
The Barranco del Infierno is a ravine located in the town of Adeje in the south of the island of Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.A popular hiking trail leads through the ravine to the highest waterfall on Tenerife. Access to the gorge is controlled by a limitation on the number of daily visitors. Reservations can be done online.The area is very important archaeologically, since there are hundreds of caves that were home to many aboriginal Guanches, as well as caves with engravings. The largest collection of Guanche mummies and utensils were found here and placed in the Museum of Nature and Man of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.The trail was closed for security reasons after a deadly accident in 2009, until 2015. Currently it is open all the way to the end, additional safety measures have been implemented.

  • It is a fantastic choice as an alternative to the beach and the Sun in tenerife. It is a way of only 6 kilometres back and forth, reaching a waterfall which at this time is very tight because it has not rained much this season. It is easily accessible, very organized and also easy to ride for all ages. It is important to know that you have to book before the Web, since it is a preserved natural area. Don't forget to visit him and bring comfortable shoes and clothes as well as water to hydrate.

  • Nice experience but not repeatable. Very tiring on the path. You get exhausted. A suggestion: If along the way we were rallying points or refreshment to recuperate would be better

  • It has been a discovery. We love it but you have to go with sport and bring water. Better go soon because it's hot. Highly recommended.

  • Nice place to trekk, medium difficulty. A lot to see in the spring and winter, not so much in summer. We did it because we had 9 days on Teneriff Otherwise we would have skip it.
  • Nice adventisten walk. Close to natute
  • We enjoyed all other our hiking trips...This one not so much. Were told to leave in 10 minutes after we arrived to the water fall. There are so many great tracks in Tenerife so no point really for this over regulated one
  • A beautiful walking experience if you are not afraid of heights. It take's an average of 3 hour's to complete with many ups and down's. Not recommended if you are prone to leg hip or back pain.
  • Good walk, beautiful scenery, cool waterfall, a bit OTT on safety I though

Where to stay in Adeje

While Adeje is characterized for its abundance of beach and golf resorts, many people often overlook the area's charming old town. Set back from the coast on a hillside, the town offers an escape from the hectic beachfront tourism and offers numerous options for affordable accommodation. Explore the traditional restaurants and family owned shops of the old town before hopping on one of the frequent transport buses down to the beach.
