Las Vueltas - Taganana

TagananaThe Nature's Spirit

The hike called La Vueltas was a very long time the only connection between the village Taganana and Santa Cruz and La Laguna. If you love being in the nature, discovering new flora and fauna this hike fits you perfectly!

How to get there?

The hike starts in the region of "las Casas de las Cumbres" and at the right handside of "La Casa Forestal" on the highway TF-1124. At first the way goes up between loads of different plants until it gets close to a cave which can be found on the right handside of the path.

From this point the hike continues going down again and at the same time the visitor can see miscellaneous species of plants and water emanations. The hike "la vueltas" consists on the hand of many curves and on the other hand shows the excursionist the original cobble stone pavement at various points of time. After having done the first part of the hike the density of trees decreases slightly, which allows the visitor to enjoy from the spectacular views over the unique and beautiful landscape and the coast. Furthermore, the visitor will see the cobble stone pavement again, little walls made of dry stone and terraces will appear.

Continuing, the hiker has to follow the road "Los Naranjos" where after some meters another cobble stone path appears which leads to Taganana. The first district the hiker goes through is called "barrio de Portugal" which is popular for it's traditional architecture. People say that this was the first colony after the conquest of the island.

In total, doing this hike takes more or less 2 hours and the way is of a length of 4,5km.
