Length: 12.4 mi • Est. 7 h 2 m
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

Length: 4.5 mi • Est. 2 h 37 m
The Cahorros hike is one of the most popular outdoor destinations in the province of Granada. This adventure begins in Monachil (from Latin, monastery), a town in Granada located 14 km from the capital. Throughout this walk you will find waterfalls, rocks eroded by the river, hanging bridges and spectacular views. This trail is full of wildflowers, fruit trees like apricot trees, almond, cherry and apple trees. Spring is the most recommended season of the year, since the flowers are in their full splendor, but try to avoid going on the weekend, since there is a huge influx of people. Monachil is located within a valley in the Sierra Nevada National and Natural Park and is also known for the Sierra Nevada ski resort.Show more

Length: 3.9 mi • Est. 2 h 40 m
Fermé les lundis et mardis. The Barranco del Infierno, named for its wild and steep terrain, is considered a Protected Natural Area and is part of the Barranco del Infierno Special Nature Reserve, that is why its maximum capacity per day is 300 visitors. This ravine was the home of the Guanches, aborigines who lived in the caves of the gorge and following its course you will reach the highest waterfall on the island of Tenerife. The Barranco del Infierno is at an altitude of 1,300 meters and the trail lasts about 3 and a half hours between roundtrip (6500 meters in length). Although it is not a very complicated path, it is necessary to wear good mountain shoes to avoid slipping or tripping over the stones. The route of this path begins at 350 m above sea level, in the municipality of Adeje, in a place that constitutes a natural balcony with magnificent views of the southern landscape of the Island.Show more
