Home of Guayota, God of fire
Early rising at 05.00am to reach the summit and contemplate the sunrise from Spain’s highest point. The sensations you will experience on top of the mountain are indescribable.
At about 08:00am we begin to descend towards Montaña Blanca, undoing the steps we took with great effort the day before.
The descent from Pico del Teide (Teide Summit) to Montaña Blanca offers us a very different view than the previous day, as the colors, and even landscapes will seem different. The variety of shades in the volcanic material is immense and presents an amazing visual spectacle. On this part of the tour we will see the Risco de La Fortaleza to the back left and towards the front and right we have the Cordillera de Anaga, Izaña Observatory and the built-up areas from Portillo de Abajo and Portillo de Arriba. We will try and reach the end of this tour by 12:00am.
