The island of El Hierro is one of the wonderful natural treasures our planet has to offer.  An idyllic hiker’s paradise with varied vegetation, volcanoes, hills, it has been declared an Atlantic Biosphere Reserve. An Eden where we can walk through different climatic zones on a single route.

The coasts, the picturesque villages and the magnificent sunsets offer unique postcard motifs.

Lush forests of tree heath and gale trees, laurel forests, through which the cool trade winds pass with enough moisture to create a green oasis.

The starry sky over El Hierro, the vastness, the tranquillity and the scenic contrasts are further characteristics of this small island in the Atlantic. The hospitality of the inhabitants gives us a feeling of security.

Old hiking trails lead us across the changing geography of El Hierro. Beautiful panoramas over the island await us on the edge of the gulf crater, certainly one of the highlights on our trip and a moment that will remain in our memories.

Day 2

Mirador de Jinama - Camino de La Virgen

. From the hotel, located next to the Ermita de la Candelaria in the quiet municipality of Frontera, the PR EH 2.3 trail ascends towards the Mirador de Jinama through a leafy forest of fayas and heather in a permanent zig-zag.  At its confluence with the GR131, path that is also known as the "Camino de la Virgen" due to the four-yearly pilgrimage, the path goes along the majestic semi-circle formed by these summits.
] The ascent takes us to the Mirador de Fireba, located 1350 metres above the sea and part of an ancient volcanic crater. From there the view is great, enjoying an immense perspective towards the neighbouring islands of Tenerife and La Palma.
After the well-deserved rest for the exhausting ascent, it continues now a constant descent through the PR EH 2 path, crossing the Hoya de Carboneros on its way back to Frontera. This is a circular route along a very scenic path that evokes the hustle and bustle of the ancient locals when they moved their livestock in search of the best pastures on the island.

Day 3

Sabinosa - Lighthouse of Orchilla

. Sabinosa is a romantic village situated on a cliff in the south of El Golfo. From there the path climbs up to the top of the cliff towards the Ermita de la Virgen de Los Reyes. The wind whips the whole region permanently and the junipers develop impossible shapes. An image for which El Hierro is known nowadays.
The Ermita de La Virgen de Los Reyes corresponds to the place where it is said that the virgin appeared to some shepherds. Today this sanctuary has become a place of pilgrimage and fervent devotion to the patron saint of the island.
] Now the path continues towards the sea, towards the Orchilla Lighthouse. This is the westernmost point of the world known in Pliny the Elder's time and the last part of the GR 131. The path, in its constant descent, crosses cattle enclosures and offers us a view of recent volcanic landscapes.

Pico Tenerife - El Pinar - Las Playas

. Today a 20-minute transfer will take you to Pico Tenerife, one of the highest peaks on El Hierro. From there, the PR EH 2 trail descends southwards, crossing impressive forests of fayas and heather and going through beautiful centenary pine forests.
] In the progressive descent, you reach the village of El Pinar, located 600 metres above the sea in the southern slope of the island. El Pinar is a cheerful and sunny town, ideal for a refreshing drink before continuing towards Las Playas.
The path to Las Playas continues along the PR EH 3, descending along a steep cliff in zig-zag until it reaches the sea. Las Playas is an area of callao on the east side of the island where natural pools and original rocks predominate, providing an exotic view of the island.
