Anaga is the lush, green mountainous region in the north of the island of Tenerife. With peaks of up to 1,000 meters in places, it’s hard to miss when venturing up north. Some of our volunteers who have gone camping in Taganana have also gone hiking in Anaga. It is truly the best way to escape the summer heat while simultaneously enjoying spectacular views of the surroundings. There are various hiking trails that range from a couple of kilometers long (close to Taganana) to the route from Chamorga to La Laguna which is 34km long. Just make sure to take good hiking boots, plenty of water, and a light jacket as it often is a bit chilly up there.
Most of the region is accessible by public transport leaving from Santa Cruz:
To Chamorga (bus 947)
To Igueste de San Andres (945)
To Taganana (946)
