The Anaga area offers a unique variance of a nature finest. We will start on the edges of the “las Mercedes” forest, a forest out of fairytale. The wide trails will lead you through an incredible country side with moss layered slops and unique vegetation. This area is known as the moist and damp area of Tenerife . The harsh valleys of this mountain massif will take your breath away. And there it is 600 m altitude later, an local tavern with amazing food waiting for us. Papas Arrugadas, goat cheese and so much more. Oh you don’t know what Papas Arrugadas are? You will have to wait to try them on our trip. Lunch is over and from now on only downhill through a laurel forest back to the shuttle.
The forests around La Esperanza are the largest forest areas of Tenerife. We will start with a gentle climb in southern direction, followed by huge Eucalyptus trees on the south flank of the Island. This amazing smelly climb will end on one of the best panoramic view over Santa Cruz and the entire Anaga mountain massif. The pictures from here will be one of the highlight of your trip to Tenerife or even of your life. Almost time for lunch, but not without a little bit more exercise. 350 m altitude must be concord, no problem for fit bikers like us. And there it is the " Las Lagunetas" tavern. A home cooked meal which Tenerife style. Delicious! Lunch is over and from now on only downhill through the rampant vegetation of Tenerife back to the shuttle.
