After a short transfer to the village of El Palmar, in the barren western part of the island, you enter an area of open woodlands and farmed areas, ascending to a vista point higher up and from there, along steep barrancos to the tiny village of Teno Alto. Traversing a high plateau with bizarre vegetation of giant euphorbia plants, get to Punta Teno and enjoy the lovely views that on clear days show all the way to La Gomera.
Alternative route: for very windy or warm days we suggest doing a circular hike from Las Portelas, which is better protected and has more shade but equally good views.
Standard routes: 8 - 11 -15 km / 5 - 7 - 9,5 mi, 3.5 / 4.5 / 5.5 hrs, 400 / 500 m ascent and descent.
Alternative routes: 7 - 10 km / 4,5 - 6 mi, 4 hrs, 525 / 650 m ascent and descent.
