Las Montanas de Anaga, Tenerife

4.9
#6 of 26 in Nature in Tenerife
With a rugged coastline and jagged peaks, Las Montanas de Anaga is a place of legend, beauty, and history. At 1,024 m (3,600 ft), this mountain range is the highest point in both the Canary Islands and Spain itself. Explore the mountains’ many protected areas and marked trails, spread out through a number of national parks, and marvel at its massive geological formations, formed in a giant volcanic eruption over 7 million years ago. Discover viewing areas high above the Atlantic Ocean, and keep your eyes open for the witches that populate the area, according to Tenerife mythology. Grab a bite at a cafe or restaurant in one of the villages, or bring snacks along for a picnic on the way. Be aware that many of the inner parts of the mountain range are inaccessible by car, and wear proper footwear, as some of the routes are very rugged. For this same reason, hiking in the area is not recommended for those with mobility problems.

    This mountain road, little used by tourists (it's not bad anyway), is in the image of the island of Tenerife: surprising and pretty. We went to La Laguna and as the rise, this road is completely covers d sumptuous trees that come together at the top to form a tunnel of greenery. Then, the panoramas are increasing, making us discover the droopy steep peaks in the ocean. Our s 2 h journey is complete on the beach of Las Teresitas...
