EL HIERRO - Along the coastal pathEarly morning transfer to Los Rodeos Airport for a 40-minute local flight to the island of El Hierro. On arrival in El Hierro, a taxi will pick you up to take you to San Andrés, a farming village located high up in the central part of the island. There begins an impressive 4-hour hiking route through the beautiful Meseta de Nisdafe, crossing the "Tierra que Suena", to the Mirador de Jinama. The descent to the valley of El Golfo offers a lush, leafy landscape with spectacular views. In the past, it was the usual route of the farmers on their traditional "Mudadas" and today it allows us to discover the impressive diversity of landscapes on the island of El Hierro. As you start the descent from the Mirador de Jinama towards Frontera, you will plunge into the "Monteverde" along an ancestral path that ends at the Iglesia de La Candelaria, in Tigaday, in the heart of the valley of El Golfo.

EL HIERRO - Ruta de Los CarbonerosToday the Ruta de Los Carboneros takes you from your accommodation in Tigaday, walking along a path in permanent ascent until you reach the edge of the semi crater that forms the whole of El Golfo (1,350 metres above sea level). From there, a magnificent view opens up over the entire valley of Frontera, as well as the neighbouring islands of La Palma, La Gomera and Tenerife. Once you have reached the summit, you begin a gradual descent through impressive, magical-looking laurel forests. It was in these forests that the island's old charcoal burners used to come to get the wood they needed to produce charcoal. On the descent to the south, the huge laurels will be left behind to give way to splendid Canary Island pine forests. The sunny village of El Pinar, on the southern slopes of El Hierro, marks the end of this stage in which you will cross the summit of El Hierro from north to south.

There you'll get an insight into the lifestyle of the island's ancient settlers, and the recovery of the El Hierro Giant Lizard, an endangered endemic species. Then the trail continues to "Punta Grande", a beautiful enclave by the sea, where the smallest hotel in the world is located (just 4 rooms), according to the Guinness Book of Records.

EL HIERRO - Ruta del MeridianoThe Ruta del Meridiano starts in the famous savin forests of El Hierro. A 40-minute drive takes you to the Ermita de Los Reyes and shortly after you will reach the well-known trees of impossible shapes that the relentless wind has shaped. The Ermita de Los Reyes is the most important place of worship for the people of El Hierro. The Patron Saint of the island motivates a secular procession four years later of great popularity throughout the population: the Bajada de La Virgen (Descent of the Virgin. The path descends towards the Orchilla Lighthouse, crossing enclosures where cattle graze in absolute freedom. The route ends in an exotic volcanic landscape in the extreme southwest, also known as the Zero Meridian. Mapped by Ptolemy in antiquity, it was considered the westernmost point of the known world. And it is here that today you will find the Orchilla Lighthouse and the surprising Cueva del Acantilado.
