Despite its terrible name 'Barranco del Infierno', this luxurious green vegetation gorge is an oasis in the arid and desert landscape of southern Tenerife. It is the only place where you will find natural water.
It is a paradise for walkers and is popular as a way of the future for the entire hike (round trip) takes only about two hours and can be done before the strong afternoon sun. In addition, many parts of the trail are very down in the ravine at times.
The tour ends in a waterfall, not very spectacular but unexpected in a landscape so dry. It is situated in the village of Adeje.
