One of the most spectacular climbing areas is that of ‘el risco de Guaria’ on the natural monument of Tejina Mountain, which is one of the protected areas within our municipality. These ancient volcanic walls form some of the longest climbing routes on the island – of which there are around 90 – however the way the rocks are formed also allows you to combine classic techniques with variable rope lengths, which is why it is considered by many to be one of the best areas for climbing in Tenerife.

If you wish to visit the protected areas, there are specific rules that must be followed in order to regulate climbing practice. You may climb in these areas with an annual license which is authorised by the Environmental area of the Tenerife Government.


Applications for licenses must be made to

Área de Medioambiente del Cabildo Insular de Tenerife’ in person or by e-mail to the following address:  [email protected]

The license is obligatory and you must always carry it with you.

You will need to send the following information:

Name and surname

NIE or Passport Number

Contact phone number, if possible, a mobile number.
