Five hiking trails close to Sotavento Tenerife

And if you also like hiking, all the better! Here are five hiking trails that are just a stone’s throw from Sotavento. Want to come with us?
Ascent to Montaña Roja
This route starts at El Médano and takes you to the peak of the mountain. Along the way, you will see dunes and volcanic landscapes as you skirt the edge of the beach via a wooden walkway. You can even see the remains of a bunker from the Second World War. However, don’t forget to bring your own water as there won’t be anywhere to get provisions along the way.
The Teide walk
What better place to see the stars than from the top of Spain’s highest mountain? The proposal speaks for itself. Simply relax and enjoy the experience.
Los Derriscaderos natural monument
This protected natural area of volcanic terrain features a trail through ravines, where the curious formations created by the erosion of the rocks will amaze you. However, be prepared for a 20-kilometre round-trip walk starting and finishing in Granadilla.
Barranco del Río walk
After leaving your vehicle in the designated area, a walk of just over two hours will bring you to the waterfall which is the highlight of the route. This river canyon walk offers surprising contrasts, given that it combines arid landscapes with pine forests and slopes with lush vegetation.
A little further from Sotavento (but still no more than about half an hour by car) is the district of Fasnia. When you get here, head for the coast to take the 15-kilometre walk along magnificent beaches and cliffs. Las Eras, Playa Zapata, Fondeadero de Fasnia, Barranco del Cuchillo and Pozo de las Ceras are a testament to why Tenerife is a paradise for nature lovers.
