MTB Bike Tour Santiago Del Teide – El Chyniero

MTB Volcano Challenge

Cycling in Tenerife, a leading company in excursions and bike tours in Tenerife, offers you an unmissable tour to discover the highlights of the queen of the Canaries. We will cycle along routes that overlook the sea, leaving behind breathtaking volcanic landscapes.


After the pick-up from your hotel by minivan, we will go to Santiago del Teide, where you will have the opportunity to use the toilets or have a simple coffee. We will hold our briefing here, and after individually setting up and adjusting the bikes, we will proceed to the beginning of our off- road route

The first kilometers alternate between gentle climbs and descents, until you see below the villages located on the north-east of the island, such as La Orotava, Porto del La Cruz, Garachico and many others.

Cycling in the vicinity of Montana Negra, after about 15 kilometers we will arrive at the Chyniero lava cone, the scene of the last major eruption of 1909, which lasted about 10 days.

After a breaking for a photo opportunity, we will continue towards the Casa Forestal refuge, where we will stop one last time before returning to the starting point.  


The tour is of average difficulty on mountain bikes, low for e-bikes. During the ride we will cross some short sections with quite challenging climbs–the path will have volcanic sand and packed dirt–but it will be simple even for those who do not have experience in off-road cycling, as the tour has been designed and structured specifically on wide and very safe roadways.

Quale temperatura troverò in Tenerife?

Tenerife is a very large island that has the Teide volcano as its highest point. It is almost always sunny for at least 10 months a year, but the difference in altitude exposes us to sudden changes in temperature, so to give specific forecasts for a given time of year is quite complicated. For a rough estimate, please refer to the local weather forecast site
