MTB Bike Tour Tenerife: Off-road Escape
Mtb Off-road escape between the lava and the sea
The ease of this mtb tour between Pal-Mar, Montana Amarilla and the Golf del Sur offers a basic-level tour open to all nature lovers who do not have training as competitive athletes but who are still familiar with off-road cycling. An itinerary that can be further simplified according to your physical ability.
The departure is scheduled by minivan from your hotel. After having made an initial briefing at our operational base, and after having set up and adjusted the bikes, which we will load with us on the vehicle, we will safely cross the centers of tourist interest Las America and Los Cristianos. On leaving this last town, we will climb the extinct volcano of Guaza by car for about 80 meters in altitude, and then continue towards the beginning to the off-road route. From here we will continue by bike for about 25 km, away from the asphalt and immersed in the nature of the Canary Islands, such as the special reserve Malpais de la Rasca, in Pal-Mar, with the typical coastal vegetation of cardoons, euphorbia, prickly pear and other native species.
We will leave Pal-Mar only after taking the obligatory photo of the cliff from the roadman’s house located under the lighthouse of Rasca, a classic, moving in the direction of one of the oldest seaside villages in the south of the island, namely Las galletas, a place of sea, boats, fish and seagulls.
Here we will make our stop on the seafront at one of the beach front bars to taste the typical leche leche (coffee with condensed milk) and fill up the water bottles. We will leave this magnificent place and then cross the Costa del Silencio for a short distance and re-enter the off-road circuit for 7 km in the direction of the Montagna Amarilla volcano.
From here we will return by road / asphalt, the shortest way to end our wonderful day.
As always for all the cycling itineraries in Tenerife, you can customize the tour based on your experience level. In fact, there is also the Extra-Basic variant, with departure and return from Pal-Mar, which includes 150 meters of uphill altitude difference, for a total of 30 km uphill.
