Hike 5: Siete Canadas

In May and October, all main trails in the Canadas are closed on Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 am to 2 pm. The reason is the drive hunt for the mouflons that settled here in 1970, which cause great damage to the endemic flora. These days should be avoided for this tour.

The hike starts at the Parador Nacional. Beforehand, you have to park the car at El Portillo and take bus 348 from there to the Parador. There is only one bus at 9:30 from Puerto de la Cruz. It stops at El Portillo around 10:40.

 

At 16,9 km the tour is quite long and strenuous. The blue rating in the Rother does not apply at all. As a variation you can also hike 5 km from the Parador to the Siete and back and combine this with the Roques. Then you have all the highlights covered in one day.

 

A detailed description of the route and the GPS track can be found in the Hiking Guide Tenerife.

 

Tip: if you climb the Guajara on the normal route, you walk the first 4 km of the Siete tour. If you choose the more difficult ascent of the Guajara and the descent via the normal route, you can enjoy the Siete a little more at the end of the hike.
