Tenerife: Los Arcos Canyoning Tour with Guide

1. Tenerife: Los Arcos Canyoning Tour with Guide

Try something new and spend an active day outdoors on this canyoning excursion to La Arcos from Tenerife. Gear up in canyoning gear, then prepare to rappel down the orange canyon walls, take in the fresh air, and get unbeatable views of the landscape. The approach to the ravine begins on a forest track with a gentle slope, where you’ll walk for about 45 minutes. The start of your descent begins with the first rappel of about 22 meters. From here, you can begin to observe how the accumulation of volcanic ash and the erosion produced by the passing of time has naturally come together and formed this unique canyon. The light playing against the moss-covered orange walls and creating various shades will undoubtedly be the main attraction during the entire descent. After finishing 8 rappels, arrive at the Chimoche track to conclude your descent. Finish off your trip by making your way back to the starting point on an approximately 20-minute walk. 

Tenerife: Guided Canyoning Experience in Los Arcos

2. Tenerife: Guided Canyoning Experience in Los Arcos

Go on a guided rappelling adventure in Los Arcos Canyon in Tenerife. Learn a new skill as you take in the immense, swooping geological formations surrounding you in the canyon. Learn all about the canyon's geological history from your local guide. Meet your guide, pop on your helmet and harness, and start off with a little hiking route. See and learn about the endemic flora and talk about the history of this iconic location from your local guide. Then, get taught how to rappel before putting your newfound skills to the test on a range of walls created by volcanic ash. Once you reach the first rappel, the fun begins. Descend with ropes through several walls — each one is very different from the other — all of which are made of volcanic ashes. Throughout the tour, be amazed by the scenery that surrounds you, including Los Arcos, which was formed by the erosion of the water that passed through many years ago. Once at your last rappel, embark on another short hike to return to your meeting point.

We absolutely loved the experience! Our guide was so friendly and most of all- PATIENT with us. The experience itself was exactly the right amount of challenge. The walls that you go down start off smaller and easier and gradually get more difficult. It helps because you don't jump into anything you're not ready for. It is physically tiring though, but you don't notice it when you're doing it. Also it got very cold! It's a good idea to pack an extra, EXTRA sweater in your bag just in case. Especially as you have chunks of time waiting for everyone to climb down (you're not bored though as there are so many beautiful sights to see!). 5/5 would recommend this activity to anyone visiting Tenerife.

It was an amazing first-time experience canyoning. Jorge is really friendly and professional instructor. He introduced the basics of canyoning and explained the surroundings and the nature of the canyon itself. Even though I was doing this for the first time and the first abseiling was around 22 meters high, he made it feel very safe. The canyon itself is really nice, full of narrow paths, and rocks. We even experienced a minor “rain” of very small rocks, which only added extra spice to the experience. I would highly recommend this tour!

That was an experience! If you fancy a bit of adventure, this is the place for you! Good shoes are highly recommended... Our guide was very environmentally conscious and provided a lot of information about nature and animals, top notch

It has been a new exciting experience. Which we will surely remember for a long time. Including the sore muscles afterwards.

What an adventure! We did a lot of different activities and this one was our favorite.
