    Itinerary

    Day 1Arrival to Tenerife

    Today we welcome you in Tenerife. Take the day to rest and relax from your arrival and settle into your hotel.

    Day 2Every Sunday: Descent into the unique Masca Canyon and Dolphin Cruise

    “Who has not seen Masca, has seen nothing”; is an old proverb of the population of Tenerife. So, what are you waiting for? Starting point for this trek through the Masca canyon is the small village of the same name. After a visit to the village of Masca, the spectacular descent into the gorge starts. The trail leads steadily downhill on narrow and natural paths into the ravine. First you pass abandoned terraces on an old connecting trail. Later you get into rocky terrain through a dried river bed. It is very important that you feel comfortable in this field and bring some hiking experience with you, no vertigo! Then this hike will be a unique adventure for you. Finally you will arrive down into the bay of Masca where its crystal clear waters will entice you to go for a swim. After this you will enjoy a boat cruise to watch dolphins.
