Las Montanas de Anaga, Tenerife

(4.9/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Las Montanas de Anaga on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Taganana vacation generator.

  • He cites a must if you visit the island. You can go in about 3 hours without haste and stopping. They are precious landscapes that I greatly recommend.

  • Leave the car at the entrance of Taborno and made us to the path of right of the Church to the Roque de Taborno. Is partially signposted, small trails. Sometimes you have to be good non-slip! Ease also :-) Was simply gorgeous, we enjoyed it. Route to the Summit takes about 2 h, total about 5 km with photo stops.

  • It was the last day of our trip. We were too tired to do another day of hiking so decided to explore the region by car. The drive is pretty amazing by itself. We left Santa Cruz and took the TF-12 to ...  more »
