Technical information

Description of the route:

Route 0.4.0 turns a dream into reality: to travel in a single day the distance that separates the seashore and a colossus almost four thousand metres high: Mount Teide.

It starts at El Socorro Beach, in Los Realejos, and coincides with the PR-TF 41. The first few kilometres cross a rural environment and the slopes of the Los Campeches, Tigaiga and Ruiz protected landscape. A steep climb leads to the La Corona viewpoint and, shortly after, to the El Asomadero viewpoint. From there on, the mountain brush of the Corona Forest Natural Park is at the fore.

Half way up our ascent, the pine forest gives way to the high mountain scrub of Mount Teide National Park. As you approach El Cabezón Mountain, you can opt for the PR-TF 41.1 path to Portillo Alto or for the winding ascent up La Rambleta (3555 m). This point can be reached without needing a permit, but to climb the last 630 metres and reach the summit of Mount Teide you will need to have a permit, which can be requested in advance on the website www.reservasparquesnacionales.es .

Remember: Prevention, Information and Knowledge are the key to avoiding unpleasant situations.
  1. Make sure you always have somebody else to walk with, stick to the marked footpaths and respect the way of life, privacy and property of the local inhabitants.
  2. If you keep your noise levels down, you will discover just how much life there is all around you.
  3. Take any rubbish with you, even organic waste. This will help preserve the beauty of the scenery and prevent the proliferation of rodents in the area. Take special care with cigarette butts.
  4. Picking up plants, animals or other items from the environment may entail the loss of irreplaceable resources.
  5. The people who take care of these Protected Nature Areas would be very grateful if you let them know about any incidents you may have noticed on your walk. To do so, contact the Environmental Department of the Island Council of Tenerife:

    Área de Medio Ambiente del Cabildo Insular de Tenerife

  6. Remember that the Island's environment is as unique as it is unpredictable. It must be enjoyed responsibly and sensibly. Take special care in natural areas and don't forget that accidents can happen at any time.
  7. Pay attention to signs.
  8. Check the weather forecast​ to make sure the conditions are suitable.
  9. Wear suitable clothing and footwear for hiking and always pack your mobile phone, sunscreen, a hat, a coat, a waterproof, enough food and plenty of water in your backpack.
  10. Let your family and/or friends know which route you will be taking and bear in mind how many daylight hours you will need to complete it.
