Pools and Pines, A Stunning Tenerife Walk

The Erjos Pools in Santiago del Teide are one of our favourite spots on Tenerife but for many a year events have conspired to prevent us from hiking them.

A couple of weeks ago we spent an idyllic weekend at the Rural Hotel Señorio del Valle in Santiago del Teide and we took the opportunity to finally hike around the Erjos Pools again and this time, to record our route for others to enjoy.

We've called it Pools and Pines and it's now part of the 'Into the Valley – Erjos to Arguayo' Island Walks. Anyone who has bought the Into the Valley Island Walks from us, either individually or as part of the All Walks offer, just email me and I'll send you the updated version free of charge.
Here's a taster of this lovely walk and you can read about it on our Walking Tenerife website.

Since then news about the re-opening has been sketchy...until now READ MORE
