This particular route can only be taken from late January to March, when the almond trees are in full bloom. The special conditions conferred by the volcanic soil in this area are perfect for these trees, which require little water. The walk begins in Santiago del Teide, at Plaza de la Iglesia, and ambles through the area of Las Manchas before coming to an end in the town of Arguayo. Altogether, it is a nine kilometre (5.6 mile) walk of intermediate difficulty. There is a shorter version of the route that sets off from El Calvario de los Baldios in Valle de Arriba and also ends in Arguayo.
