Length: 4.1 mi • Est. 2 h 6 m
Chinyero Circular is located near Santiago del Teide, Spain. The trail is great for walking and normally takes 1-3 hours. Chinyero is the youngest volcano on Tenerife. It erupted in 1909 and the trail will bring you close to that century old explosion. You will see pine forests and the black ash and lava flows of the eruption. The scenery changes constantly as you circuit the volcano. It is well signed all the way around, though being a circular route, the signs never tell you how far you are from your own start point. The trail is in Teide National Park. There are many trails in the park and they make for an incredible trip through the islands. Show more

hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(71)
Length: 5.8 mi • Est. 3 h 40 m
This trail begins near the Montserrat Monastery. The path takes you through forest, which eventually becomes stone peaks. The Sant Jeroni is the highest point in the Montserrat massif. The top of Sant Jeroni offers great views of villages and a steep drop down. The path is well marked, but could still warrant a set of hiking poles. The trail is concrete and well packed dirt, many switchbacks so moderate climbing required and the terrain is pretty rough in patches, so advisable to wear comfort and appropriate footwear, and also warm clothing as it get cold the higher you go. Bring water and enjoy the breathtaking views! If you’d prefer to shorten this trail you can look into taking the Sant Joan Funicular.Show more

This is a very interesting and beautiful route thanks to its impressive views of the entire Ordesa valley and its immense waterfalls such as El Cotaruelo. This route is not very difficult to do although it is dangerous if it is raining or covered with snow. Hikers can choose to drive to the trailhead or take a bus from Torla. After arriving at the parking lot, cross the Arazas River and take the road to the right. You will begin on a not too difficult ascend. After climbing for a while, you will reach Calcilarruego's viewpoint, where you have beautiful views of the Ordesa Valley. Follow the route (GR-11) until 3 Sorores (Cilindro, Monte Perdido and Soum de Ramond). You will slowly descend to the valley, reaching a crossroad. Go straight, the deviation to the right will take you to the Góriz Refuge. You will eventually see beautiful waterfalls on the Arazas river. Turn left at the Cascades del Estrecho and la Cueva, then return along the north side of the river.Show more
