Barranco areas (Gorges)
Tenerife is full of barrancos because of past’s vulcanic activities. Hiking in one of them is a real local experience so give it a go!
Take care and unless you are really experienced, never go alone for the adventure. Look for the safe and guided ones. There are cactus species around and rocks that need to be climbed so dress and prepare accordingly.
Teide National Park
The crater of Teide is a moon-like land and it was chosen as the filming location for some Star Wars scenes. Do you want to be a part of it?
Warning: getting lost there is easier than you think. Never wander away from your group! Also, please note that the weather up there can be chilly!
