From Summit to Sea Route

We highlight the steep slopes, impressive ravines and the different volcanic cones where we walk, crossing, which migratory shepherds, our town Northern from South to North, since this route the shepherds performed it in the past with their herds in search of food.

Distance: 27.5 km.

Due to the difficulty of the route by the great difference in height and the length of it, hikers who are not accustomed to such walks should refrain.

For the safety of the hiker and for the correct development of the route, it is recommended to carry the following items: water, Cap or similar, comfortable footwear, solar shield, something to eat (nuts, fruit, snacks, chocolate,…), something coat (because by the means whereby we are going to walk, it is possible to do cold or even that you drizzle), clothes of beach and mobile phone.

It may be advisable, due to the steep slopes of the route, the use of trekking poles to soften the hardness of it.

Do not leave the trail due to the fragility of the land.
