Activity Summary

Meeting Point: Plaza de Erjos

Time: 9:30h

Once we all meet with the Guide at the meeting point, he will give us a short summary of the activity and will talk about some basic instructions for progression.

This trail will start from the town of Erjos, a small rural town that was very important in Guanche times for its fertile lands and also known for having been a transit area for transhumance routes. Once we start our tour we can begin to see how the reddish contrast with the green of the slopes begin to attract our attention. We will continue to the Charcas de Erjos, a place where the scars generated by humans in the past were used by nature and formed a small lagoon.

We will continue to climb the highest point of our route from where we can see the majestic volcano of Teide next to Pico Viejo. Once there, we will enter a path with a downward trend that will take us into the Monte del Agua, this is a characteristic place for its thick vegetation, predominantly laurisilva and brezos that along its slopes will make our 5 senses wake up and wrap ourselves around unparalleled tranquility.

After about 5 kilometers we will turn off along a forest track “but without leaving the laurel forest” it will continue along a slight upward slope that will take us to the end of our journey.

This tour is circular so we will end at the same point where our adventure began.
