Day 6 Circular Walk from Hermigua

Thursday 2nd March 2017

 

KE Adventure Travel Trip Notes

Today's walk takes us up and onto Hermigua's flanking ridge for fabulous views over the coast to the island of Tenerife and El Teide Peak. We traverse along the coastline through lush greenery and trekking volcanic paths all the way to La Caleta beach where we stop for lunch. The morning's walk should take us around 4 hours and after lunch we continue for a further 2 - 3 hours back to the hotel.

The local gofio producer

 

  Gofio is the Canarian name for flour made from roasted grains (typically wheat or certain varieties of maize) or other starchy plants (e.g. beans and, historically, fern root), some varieties containing a little added salt. Gofio is thought to have been the main staple of the diet of the Guanches, the original inhabitants of the Canary Islands, who produced it from barley and the rhizome of certain ferns.
