Masca Canyon
"Who has not seen Masca, has not seen anything" is an old proverb of the population of Tenerife. So, what are you waiting for?
Course of events
The starting point for this hike through the canyon is the small village Masca. This idyllic location is nestled in the Teno Mountains. After a visit to the village of Masca, the spectacular descent into the gorge will start. The trail leads steadily downhill on narrow and natural paths into the ravine. First you will pass abandoned terraces on an old connecting trail. Later you will get into rocky terrain through a dried river bed.
To fully enjoy this tour it will be of advantage if you bring some hiking experience with you. Also this trip is not recommended for adventurers who are prone to vertigo. If you fulfill these criteria this hike will be a unique adventure for you. Arriving at the bay of Masca, the crystal clear water invites you for a swim in the Atlantic Ocean. Afterwards the group will be picked up by a small boat which will take you along the impressive cliffs of Los Gigantes into the port of the same name.
