Visit Teno Alto

Teno Alto is most often visited as part of one of the many superb walks that dot the northern part of Tenerife.

Teno Alto is both a region and a village high up in the Teno mountains. From here there are fantastic views over the El Palmar valley.

The Teno mountains are in the northwest of Tenerife and are one of the most remote areas on the island, also one of the most beautiful. A popular walking route to Teno Alto is from El Palmar. This is a steep climb but the scenery you pass is stunning and well worth the exertion.

Another track leads from Teno Alto and goes to Las Cuevas (caves) and on to Las Casas and Punta de Teno which is in the middle of the Natural Park of Teno.

On the way you not only pass dramatic countryside but also 'tagoros' which were meeting places of the ancient 'Guanche' tribes and at Punta de Teno there are fabulous views over the coast and the lighthouse of Teno.

Teno Alto is well known for its goat cheese and so you can stop at Teno Alto or Los Bailaderos to pick up some goat cheese for your picnic.
