As the name itself indicates, the beautiful island offers us the possibility of exploring it and discovering all its most beautiful landscapes. That is why we recommend the following trails:


Route of the Nacientes de Marcos y Cordero and Los Tilos waterfall (By this time closed, because the possibility of stonefall; and it isn’t knowed when they will reopen them)


This is one of the most beautiful routes on this island, since you will go through tunnels, humid forests and waterfalls.


There are two possibilities: take the route to the springs or to the descent of Los Tilos. The first lasts 3 hours, it begins and ends at Casa del Monte, where you can go in your 4×4 vehicle or taxi.


The second is a 4-6 hour route, with a negative elevation gain of 1000 meters. You should bring a flashlight and a raincoat to be able to see in the tunnels and not get wet.


La cumbrecita.


One of the most essential routes on the beautiful island. It is a path full of impressive viewpoints starting and ending at the Cumbrecita viewpoint. It is a moderate route for all levels of physical fitness, lasting 1 hour and half at a steady pace.


The beginning of the route begins at the Cumbrecita viewpoint where you can park your car and where you can pick it up because it is a circular route. Do not forget to book your parking lot for the during of your tour, on the website of the Spanish National parks.
