Around the García Rock formations
The fascinating tour takes us straight into the stunning mountains of Tenerife. Close to Teide's National Parador we will put on our hiking shoes and begin a three to four hour walk along a well-trodden track towards the great Teide volcano. On our way, and always to our left as we circle the Roques de García, we will come across a series of extraordinary shapes, peaks and rocks, including the famous Cinchado rock or Teide's very own Buddha! The track then descends past La Cascada, lava shaped like a waterfall, into the vast sedimentary plain of Ucanca. The last stretch is a short but steep ascent back to La Ruleta mirador.
The circular hike is not difficult but you will require surefootedness and there is a steep climb at the end which will make you look forward to a long, cool beer.
The tour will generally begin at 09. 00 or at a later time if requested at our arranged meeting point. From there we will drive into the high mountains of Tenerife.
Approximately 90 minutes later we will put on our hiking boots and begin this photogenic and dramatic walk.
We will make a few stops along the way for explanations and photographs as requested. The hike will end at between approximately 13. 30 and 14. 00, when we begin out drive down to our meeting point at the end of the tour.

Estimated Local Cash Needed
20 Euros - Any extras may include purchase of food or drinks at the nearby Parador self-service café if a stop is requested. However, I would recommend you bring a picnic lunch to have during the hike.
I am not a mountaineer so would not be able to take clients mountain climbing, for example up the slopes of Mount Teide, but I can, of course, take you on the cable car and walking along the many mountain and coastal tracks in Tenerife.
