After pick-up from your Hotels in Los Cristianos, Las Americar, Costa Adeje you are transferred by bus to the tour start point. Our panoramic hike starts above the small Santiago del Teide town at Puerto de Erjos.

We will proceed up the forest road which goes up to the saddle between large and small Mt. Gala. From here it is possible to do a short climb up to the small Mount Gala.

You will have a fantastic view over the entire Teno mountains, in good weather even to La Gomera and La Palma islands. From this location you will be able to see our final destination – MASCA village.

From the meteorological divide and the green Laurisilva vegetation you will then descend along an old goat track to Masca village.

After a short stop our bus will take you to the port of Los Gigantes where we start our boat trip part:

  • On Wednesdays – our 30 min long boat trip along the impressive cliffs of Los Gigantes to Masca Bay will begin.
  • On Sundays – on Sundays longer 1 Hour long Dolphin watching boat trip is included.

In the afternoon, after the boat trip along the cliffs a bus will transfer you from Los Gigantes back to your hotel.

This trekking tour is the best alternative for the former Masca Canyon trekking tour, which is not available anymore due to safety reasons (the path along the Masca Canyon is closed by government due to safety resons after a few groups of independent hikers got stuck there and must be evacuated by resque helicopters).
