Los Roques de Garcia

Los Roques de Garcia

Los Roques de Garcia lie across the middle of the Las Canadas caldera beneath Teide in Tenerife. They are the remains of the plumbing system inside a huge stratovolcano that erupted in a violent Plinian eruption, associated with a landslide to the north of the island. In a relatively relaxing two and a half mile circular walk, you can capture breathtaking views of Mount Teide, pyroclastic rocks, the famous Roque Cinchado, a lava fall, cone sheets, columnar jointing, pahoehoe lava, a volcanic plug and also walk on the caldera floor. Take a look at the map, take in the surroundings using Street View, click on the markers to find out more or browse photographs from the whole walk.
