THE SOUTH, secrets of the volcanoes

from 140

experiencias al sur

Would you like to experience going deep into a volcano? …to understand the different types of eruptive process on the island?…to enjoy an unforgettable panoramic view from a single point boasting over 90 volcanic formations?

On the arid south of the island of Tenerife, treasures you may never have imagined are hidden in little-known spots. This is a journey into the land of volcanoes, where each of these geological formations reveals information, and where life has learnt to adapt itself perfectly between lava fields, badlands and wastelands.

In the lands to the South you will visit Arico, a site of unique geology, which hides an endless number of treasures to be explored. In remote villages featuring popular architecture, people have learnt to adapt to the environment by making best use of the resources available.

Lulled by the sounds of the sea, the volcanoes of hydrothermal origin lie along the coastline, which hides coloured volcanic structures, sculptures which could well have been carved by the hands of a talented artist.

On the way to the highlands, you will leave the characteristic ecosystem of the coastal zone made up of “tabaibas” and “cardones” (local vegetation). From the most outstanding viewpoints you will see vast plains dotted with volcanic cones. At the entrance to one of the highest villages in Spain, typical farming terraces covered in ash appear, which are considered to be a symbol of local identity. Here you will discover the importance of water use in this area.

Visiting the island without seeing the volcanoes may be impossible, but we suggest you going further, and tasting the local products grown on this volcanic land, which is what gives them their unique nuances.

From the subsoil to the surface, you will be presented with a vast portrait of haphazard volcanic shapes.
