Our group walking holiday to the Masaru Hotel at Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife was a superb trip.
The holiday was organised by Joy Johnson, with the walks led by Eve and Stan of KWA Guided Walks. Most people came for a single week during the 2-week period of the holiday, and there were 4 walking days and 2 free days each week. The walks were stunning, with views of the snow-capped peak of Mt Teide volcano from all directions. The walks were in Teide National Park, the Orotava Valley, the Teno Mountains and the Anaga Mountains. On one of the walks we crossed the volcanic ash of the Chinyero and Garachico lava fields, which you can see in the photos below.
You can see more photos on the Facebook page but here are a few samples:
