Ruta de los Volcanes

Before we booked the holiday we already decided that this time we want to walk on the Ruta de los Volcanes! We had read about it so many positive things that we wanted to do the hike now. The hike starts at Rifugio de Pilar and ends in Fuencaliente. It takes about 6 hours. So we thought about how to get there and get back because by bus was no option... so we decided to walk only half of it and then go back to the starting point. We parked the car at Rifugio Pilar. From there we walked up to Pico Birigoyo. From there the view is already perfect! Then we continue south via the next volcano! Now we realized that this path is actually closed. We come to the main path and meet a lot of other hikers. Now we walk to the highest point of the hike the Deseada which is 1949m high. It is a unique experience to walk through this volcanic landscape! Here we take a long break and enjoy the view before going back to our car. This hike offers beautiful views and really should be a todo when there are no clouds covering the cumbre vieja! 🙂
