Routes to go by mountain bike in the province of Tenerife

The two Canary provinces have sufficient route options to make an unforgettable MTB tour. Especially attractive are the routes of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, composed of the islands of Tenerife, La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. In Tenerife, in addition, one of the most demanding marathon tests in Spain is celebrated, the Teide 360, with its more than 120 kilometers around the volcano and reaching the 3,000 meter altitude level. We propose to discover the routes with volcanic earth paths of Tenerife -and views of the Teide -, the visit to the Garajonay National Park in La Gomera or a descent route from the heights of the island of La Palma, more than 1,500 meters from Height to the beach, in just 15 kilometers. The Canary Islands have unique routes of Mountain Bike and is an essential cycling destination, for its network of very well exploited paths and its variety and natural wealth.

Part of these prehistoric forests can be traveled by bikes by delimited paths immersing us in a natural space of high botanical value. The relief of the route, meanwhile, is quite broken, with succession of repeches that will not give rest to our legs.
