Barranco Del Infierno in Tenerife

Tenerife's highest waterfall can be found in a ravine on the outskirts of Costa Adeje. The ravine is named Barranco del Infierno, which translates as ”canyon of hell', but this couldn't be further from the truth as this lush green area has outstanding natural beauty. It's the only area on the island of Tenerife with natural running water.

Pack your hiking boots and join a guided hike from the town of Costa Adeje through the ravine and you'll be rewarded with magnificent landscape views. Only 300 people a day are allowed in to help protect the flora and fauna. Depending on how many rest stops you take you can complete the trail in three to four hours. Heading up over 300 metres above sea level you'll pass hives and an old mill.

As you follow the riverbed you'll come across viewpoints to pause at. Admire the fascinating views of the inside of the canyon and over the valley of Costa Adeje to the sea. You'll be surrounded by wildlife, especially birds, such as the common hawk, eagle, sparrowhawk, hoopoe, Moorish partridge and the canary, so don't forget your camera. At the end of the trail is the beautiful waterfall, measuring over 200 metres high.
