Full description

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.

The trip was very well organized and a lot of fun. Our guide Jorge provided us with all the necessary equipment and safety instructions, since we were all completed beginners. He also told us many interesting things about the canyon, the rocks, the plants etc. The Canyoning itself was a great experience and we felt safe and well instructed at any point. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend this activity. Breathtaking views, the right amount of thrill for beginners and great company. Jorge gets you comfortable immediately and is very knowledgeable about not just canyoning but fun facts around the area. He took some pretty sweet photos of us too. There’s some stinging nettle in the area so if you’re a klutz, try to watch where you walk so you didn’t irritate your arms or feet.

Descendimos por el barranco viendo diferentes paisajes impresionantes! Jorge, nuestro guía, nos explicó muchas cosas sobre geología, flora e historia de la isla mientras nos metía cada vez más caña según ibamos cogiendo más soltura. Recomendable para personas que busquen conocer estas jollitas de la isla con un poco de aventura. No hace falta ser gran deportista, pero mejor ir con calzado y ropa adecuada
