Route of the Volcanoes

Route of the Volcanoes


Doing this hiking route (one of the most popular on the island) at the beginning of summer, when the trefoil (Lotus hillebrandii) is flowering, is really spectacular. The bright yellow colour contrasts with the green of the Canary Pine, and both are enhanced by the dark volcanic landscape. A real feast for the eyes. The highlight of this path is the amazing views you will enjoy and the dramatic landscapes you hike through.
