Guided Walking Holidays

Guided Walking Holidays

I regularly organise walking holidays for seasoned walkers who just want to hike. These walking holidays or group bookings need to be booked well in advance so that all the relevant arrangements can be made in a timely fashion. Whilst these are tailor made packages to suit individual’s tastes and aspirations, a typical itinerary may be as follows:

* 8 Day Schedule (can be adapted to suit your holiday)

Day 1 – Arrive in Tenerife at the south airport (TFS) I will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel. This takes about 20 minutes. After check-in there will be a short meeting with me with a glass of Sangria to discuss your weeks walking programme. After this, the day is yours to do with as you please. Note there are no meals included on day 1.

Day 2 – Walk 1 – Cruz del Carmen to Punto del Hidalgo via Batan (approximately 11 Km, 350 m ascent, 1,000 m descent, grade moderate)
After breakfast, I will collect you from the hotel at 09:00 and take you to the start of the walk which is approximately an hour’s drive from any hotel in the south. We will commence walking at approximately 10.15 and will break for a picnic lunch at approximately 12.30 in the lovely little village of Batan. After lunch we will complete the remainder of the walk and we will arrive at Punto del Hidalgo at approximately 15.15. We then take a local bus which takes us back to the vehicle. This journey is about 15 minutes. Once back at the car, I will take you back to your hotel. We should arrive at the hotel at approximately 16.30.

Day 3 – Walk 2 – Chinyero 1909 (approximately 10 Km, 300 m ascent and descent, grade easy) We will meet at 09:00 at the hotel and I will take you to the start of the walk which is about a 50 minute drive. 
On reaching our destination we will start the walk which circumnavigates the lava fields of the last volcanic eruption on the island which was in 1909. This is a nice, easy walk in the Chinyero Special Nature Reserve, mostly through Pine forest but with some sections across lava flows.
This means that the scenery changes constantly as you circuit the volcano. We will break for a picnic lunch at approximately 12.45 and then continue on our walk which will finish at approximately 14.00. 
From there, I will take you back to your hotel arriving between 1500 and 1530. The remainder of the day is your free time.

Day 4 and 7 – Additional walks or relaxing days.
On these days you can choose either another guided walk or to spend the day relaxing as you wish.
Day 5 – Walk 3 – Wow Factor Walk (approximately 12 Km, 500 m ascent/descent, grade hard) After breakfast, I will collect you from the hotel at 09.00 and we will then travel for about 45 minutes by car until we reach the Las Lajas BBQ recreation area. 
This is the start of the walk. This is a classic circular walk mostly above 2,000m. The walk quickly climbs to reach the Caldera Rim where beautiful volcanic landscapes surround us, and here we have our picnic lunch at approximately 13:00. We then descend through a sparse Pine forest to complete our journey which will take about 90 minutes. 
When we reach the car, I will take you back to the hotel arriving there at approximately 15.30.

Day 6 – Walk 4 – Magnificent Masca Walk (approximately 6 Km, 600 m ascent, grade moderate) Following breakfast, I will collect you from the hotel at 09:00 and travel by car to Los Gigantes where we take a short boat trip to the start of our walk. We ascend the magnificent barranco on adventurous paths below towering cliffs of volcanic rock. The ravine is full of lush vegetation and endemic plants with staggering views down to Masca Bay. 
Our walk ends in the pretty village of Masca. We should arrive in Masca at approximately 15.15 where the car awaits us for our journey back to your hotel. We should arrive back at your hotel at approximately 17.00.

Day 8 – Farewell from Tenerife Guided Walks I will collect you from the hotel and take you to Tenerife South Airport where you will continue your journey home. 
Please note that you need to be at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure. I will therefore pick you up 2 ½ hours before your departure time. 
Note—you must ensure you check your departure time as I will take no responsibility if you miss your flight.
