Santiago del Teide Tours

The town of Santiago del Teide sits near the western coast of the island of Tenerife in Spain’s Canary Islands.

Santiago del Teide is in the foothills of the Macizo de Teno mountains, not far from the historic mountain town of Masca. On the coast, the imposing Acantilados de Los Gigantes (Cliffs of the Giants) drop from the mountains directly into the ocean. There are several beach resort towns in the area along the coast.

The town itself is rather small, with only a few restaurants and shops, though there is a museum and a good visitor’s center. Most travelers use Santiago del Teide as a base from which to explore the excellent walking and hiking trails in the area.

Another popular draw for visitors is the village of Masca itself, home to about 90 people who have maintained its historic appearance and agricultural independence. The mountains around Santiago del Teide and Masca have many challenging, though scenic, hiking trails.

Practical Info

There is a hiking trail that descends from the village of Masca all the way down to the beach, but it’s definitely a challenging 2.7-mile trail. Wear good hiking shoes and go with a guide.
