This trip is a stunner... Join Andy in his winter home for a week of walking on this highly memorable island. £100 deposit will guarantee you a place on this 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.

All walking is with all kit for camping and cooking. Andy can advise on lightweight backpacking and will run a free training day in late October so that if not sure you can familiarise yourself with how amazingly light you can get a pack to be. 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 13th - Fly Cardiff to Tenerife South - A night on the beach with campfire and tall tales :)

Thursday 16th - Walk to El Teide Refuge - Accommodation in the refuge at 3400 metres!

Friday 17th - Sunrise on top of the highest peak in Spain, at 3700 metres! Walk off via the stunning Pico Viejo and Roques de Garcia and back to the car at the Parador. Transit to Masca for stunning views and in preparation for a walk down the Masca gorge.

Saturday 18th - Masca Gorge - words cannot describe this day so I won't try... Evening spent in San Sofi Hostel in San Miguel.

Sunday 19th - A well deserved beach day with a final night camping on the beach.

Monday 20th - 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.
