This event is SOLD OUT. We will be delivering this again in late November 2019.

This trip is a stunner... Join Andy in his winter home for a week of walking on this highly memorable island. This is a stripped down and budget walking holiday in Tenerife. There is a good deal of trust in Andy's knowledge of the island in this trip but we will have a car in support and so water and other essentials will be well provided for.

Walking is with daypacks or with backpacks, depending on the overnight arrangements. Andy can advise on lightweight backpacking. The car is used as support for the trip. However, we can drop off some kit at San Sofi Hostel as there will be a night there towards the end of the trek or we can leave stuff in the car.

ITINERARY Monday 21st - Fly Cardiff to Tenerife South - A night on the beach with campfire and tall tales :)

Tuesday 22nd - Walk to camp midway between San Miguel and Vilaflor. Overnight in an ancient made mad cave complex.

Wednesday 23rd - Walk to El Teide's caldera rim for an overnight there. We should have a spectacular sunrise!

Thursday 24th - Walk to El Teide's summit at 3700m for sunset before descending towards the West - Overnight camp high on the mountain or if feeling energetic descending via the stunning Pico Viejo and Roques de Garcia towards or to The Parador Hotel.

Friday 25th - Back to the car at the Parador. Transit to Masca for stunning views and a descent of the Masca gorge. Overnight in the gorge.

Saturday 26th - Boat trip to Los Gigantes and some ice cream, shopping, or easy living before a few hours on a beach and then the evening spent in San Sofi Hostel in San Miguel.

Sunday 27th - A well deserved beach day, maybe the 'hippy beach' or Andy's secret infinity pool, with a final night camping on the beach.

Monday 28th - Fly Home

This is a sea to summit challenge - a walk from the airport to the top of mighty El Teide... Week long guided walking holidays in Tenerife are usually about £1500 and unguided, so you fly in and are given a route map and set off come in at about £800 COST

I am offering this walk for a team of four for a grand total, excluding flights which are Cardiff to Tenerife South and currently costing £120 (maybe cheaper from Bristol and definitely cheaper from Stanstead at £80), and excluding food, for £295!!!

You will need to buy food along the way and likely we'll cater together.

All kit for the expedition can be hired through the Wales Outdoors fb shop https://www.facebook.com/pg/WalesOutdoors/shop/?cid=1675738869147668 at a reasonable cost and this can be collected from Andy in Wales or in Tenerife.
