Embark on a 5-hour journey through many different biospheres! Follow a rocky ridge deep into a sub-tropical rainforest, and ascend back up a mountain mirroring the Swiss Alps. Take in the panoramic views of the Masca hamlet, lava fields, and the looming Mount Teide before descending into an aromatic pine forest. A seasoned guide will stay with you all the way, making sure you’re safe and satisfied.
57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity.
We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, their guides, and the communities they’re traveling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures in Tenerife, please refer to the CDC’s COVID-19 travel information for the Canary Islands.
Irrespective of the current COVID-19 situation in Tenerife and the Canary Islands, your guides require you to wear a mask in the vehicle at all times.
Please contact us if you have any questions or require further information. We are happy to provide you with the most up-to-date information!
