Reviewed 28 December 2012

We went on one walk with Pas a Pas. The trip we chose was to Anaga-mountains and it was a good choice. This walk we could not have done on our own. We had a nice english-speaking guide who had wide knowledge of the island, its ecology, politics and history. We used the local bus and therefore could start from one point and end the walk on an other. This was one of the best days on our holiday.

I went on 3 walks in October and all were excellent. Very reliable, good knowlegde on the local area and plants. Used local buses and locally owned cafes. Guided in English and French in a small group. Would definitely use again. Favourite walk was the Masca ridge. Remember to take your walking boots with you! Walks cost 30-35 euros inc guide and bus fares.

I went on two tours with Pas a Pas Tenerife walking tours during the 5 days I was in Tenerife in December. Both were wonderful. One was from a peak in the Anaga Mountains to the north east of the island that ended with a delicious local meal in a very interesting village on a peak overlooking the sea, where people's houses are built into caves. The other hike was in the "La Caldera" area through the myriad colourful, small volcanoes with views out to the beautiful snow-capped Teide volcano in the distance.

If you, like me, are someone who enjoys holidays where you can hike through natural landscapes, see spectacular views, try local foods and learn something about the history, flora and fauna then these tours will suit you. The guides are knowledgable about the area and clearly are passionate about the Canaries. Ask them pretty much anything about the plants, animals and history along the way and you will get an answer.

One of the best things about the tours is that they are small and personal. There were three of us on day one and five of us on day two. This was in contrast to a lot of other tour groups we saw, where upwards of 30 people were stomping along the trails, scaring away wildlife, and being herded on and off buses.

I would particularly recommend this tour if you are travelling alone in Tenerife (as I was) and want to hike through the countryside. I just didn't feel comfortable hiking alone and the guides and my co-hikers proved to be lovely company.

The tours are easily arranged just by emailing the company (see website - http://www.pasapastenerife.com/ ) before-hand as I did. I think you can do it by SMS as well.

I would also recommend Puerto de la Cruz as a great place to base yourself in order to see/walk the most interesting parts of the island. There are economical local buses going pretty much everywhere of interest (Los Gigantes, Anaga, La Laguna, the Teide National Park). Puerto is also a pretty little town and worth seeing just on its own. The hotels are fairly reasonably priced and I even managed a self-catering apartment.

Tenerife has some great scenery and interesting plants you won't see anywhere else. The best way to see these is to walk in the country with a knowledgeable guide.

Puerto de la Cruz has many German firms offering day guided day hikes using public buses. We have walked with them and it was fine, but the rest of the guests are German and everything has to be translated for us (my German being somewhat inadequate!), and it can lose a bit in translation.

In December 2010 we found a French/Swiss couple who provide day walks in English. Nadine and Stephane charge 25 euros each person, including bus fares, to take you out and show you the countryside. Both are very knowledgeable about Tenerife, its history, plants, flowers and birds.

The walks are not terribly strenuous, if you like rambling in the UK it will be for you.

The firm's website is http://www.pasapastenerife.com/ and I highly recommend them. You can also get their leaflet from the tourist office in Puerto. Walks leave from outside the post office (building with a yellow sign) which is one street down from where all the buses leave. Drop them an e-mail if you want to sign up for a walk, or give them a call.
