The Wild North
We begin our path at the Tosca viewpoint, walking towards a small dragon tree forest. This is The Wild North. We travel a winding road dotted with small ravines that allows us to enjoy the north coast and its unusual vegetation, and just before reaching the Gallegos neighborhood where the route ends, the last ravine will put us to the test.

Hiking tour along the coastal path GR130
Quiet and isolated, this is how the harsh and wild north presents itself to us. A landscape flooded with light and fog, broken by bizarre barrancos and rough mountain ridges, which offers only a few settlements. Here, nature is reduced to the essentials, still completely subject to the laws of wind and weather.
The Dragon trees from La Tosca
Our hike starts with an impressive view over the north coast, below we already see the first specimens of a dragon tree grove, plants that were considered sacred by the indigenous people. The endless green and the deep sea accompany our view on the section of the Camino Real GR130.
We cross several canyons, reaching picturesque enclaves on our way through succulent vegetation, tree heath and passing some barbuzanos. In the distance we see the villages of Franceses and El Tablado.
In the village of Gallegos we will stop at Marleen’s bar, where we can enjoy some refreshment after our impressive hike.
