Great Anaga exploration

Great intro tour to Anaga! Amazing guide! I would advise to give more time to explore La Laguna, 1h 15 min is too short,... Show full review ➤ Great intro tour to Anaga! Amazing guide! I would advise to give more time to explore La Laguna, 1h 15 min is too short, especially if you wanna grab a bite as well. Hike wise -> it was mentioned it is moderate level, it is easy. There is some uphill walking which could be challenging for elderly people, but it is not moderate lvl (comparing to Los Gigantes to Santiago del Teide hike, which is officially moderate).  Hide review
