Hiking in El Hierro. Canary Islands
We present a 7-day trip, including travelling days, to discover on foot the most beautiful natural attractions of the island. Also, we will learn about its history and we will savour its delicious food, completing a trip that will make us live a very intense and a very special experience.Small is beautiful. And El Hierro, with 268,71 Km2 is the smallest of the Canary Islands (If we don´t include the islets of the Chinijo Archipelago). Yes, it is a beautiful island. But don´t be deceived by its size, that will not be an impediment to enjoy the dramatic landscapes by walking in one of those places increasingly scarce around the word, where nature remains untouched. And this is not counting its underwater treasures… Do you know that El Hierro is considered one of the best places to do scuba diving? But we hope you still have some energy left, because we came here to do some walking! El Hierro is a wonder for walkers. It is the most southern and western island of the archipelago, the most rural and the wildest, what give and special character to the island.El Hierro was declared a Unesco Biosphere Reserve. It has a precipitous orography due to its volcanic history and it is covered by a unique vegetation capable to adapt to the insularity and the climate. The presence of the trade winds gives place to the development of spectacular Laurisilva forests. Surely, we will be lucky enough to have the company of a lizard on one of our walks, the most famous animal of the island! And don´t worry they are inoffensive!
