The Masca Gorge

Monday 23rd October 2017

 

  Garmin data    
  Time Elapsed 3 hrs 40 mins  
  Distance 9.9 km  

We organised our Masca Gorge trip through our tour operator Tui; they use local company Diga Sports who charge Euro 54 per person for hotel pick up, coach to Masca village, a sandwich for the hike, a guide on the hike, the boat back to Los Gigantes and the coach back to the hotel. Diga Sports also provide boots and walking poles if needed.

Looking back to Mt. Teide as the coach crested the ridge on its way to Masca

Very little room to park at Masca

20 minutes in we reached a small bridge - this was the point that those with shaking knees were asked to go back!
