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 Los 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 a 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 have 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.

This tour was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation for my partner and I. The tour with an incredibly great guide started with a 45 minute hike to the canyon. The first descent of 22 meters was a challenge, but you felt very safe at all times because the guide took each participant individually into account and had exciting things to tell about the area at all times. It was an unforgettable experience for us and we can only recommend everyone to book this tour as well. Thanks to Jorge and see you next time!

The tour was our absolute holiday highlight! Jorge as a tour guide was simply top class and gave you an absolute feeling of security at all times. Despite the lack of previous climbing experience, we became safer descent by descent with Jorge at our side and had a lot of fun. Absolute recommendation!

Great guide, very reassuring, good explanations and patient Great experience, great view / landscape Many walls descended one like the other fun And the guide tells us about the fauna and flora as well as the different rocks I recommend

Excellent activity if you want to discover the nature of the north of Tenerife and have an introduction to canyoning. Our guide was awesome!! Physical level, no need to be a great sportsman but better to be in good shape.

I recommend this excursion with a nice and accommodating guide! It was really amazing
