If you want a taste of what the Canary Islands might have been like until not so very long ago, the Taganana Route is the one for you. Away from the speed of modern life, Taganana remains isolated and almost untouched by progress. It is hidden deep in amongst the steep valleys of the island’s oldest mountain range and the route meanders in and out of ravines, from the beautiful coastline of spectacular cliffs and beaches once used by pirates to land their treasures right up to the sub-tropical rain forest in the Las Mercedes peaks. The sights are simply magnificent and beautiful. The contrasting colours, varieties of plant and tree species and pretty mountain hamlets where electric light was a novelty even in the 1990s will keep your camera occupied almost around every corner. Taganana is an example of where people still live off what the land provides for them and where remarkable, unspoilt beaches are the perfect setting for tales of pirates and smuggling. If it is open we might be able to peep into the beautiful Our Lady of the Snows chapel with origins in the early 16th century. A stop at a local inn towards the end of the tour is always recommended if there is time.
