There’s nothing particularly spectacular about this shot but it sort of sums up some of the reasons why the Anaga Mountains are our favourite area for walking in Tenerife. They make you feel quite small.
Other walks on Tenerife are beautiful with plenty of WOW moments, but the Anagas are wild and untameable and that gives them a thrilling edge to go with their rugged good looks.
It’s a savage, often difficult landscape that makes visitors work hard to discover its glorious plunging ravines and dense forests and furthermore it boasts a personality that couldn’t be more removed from the shiny, new resorts near the other end of the island.
If the Anaga Moungtains don’t impress then you might as well give up travel altogether because everywhere is going to be a disappointment.
