Description:
Situated at the extreme north eastern tip of the island, the Anaga peninsula is an ancient shield volcano that formed between 4.9 and 3.9 million years ago, one of three volcanoes that were eventually to form the basis of today’s island of Tenerife. This rather less well known part of Tenerife is a wilderness of rugged terrain and dense forests. Along its north coast, high cliffs fall hundreds of metres into sea, its cloud capped upper slopes and summits, known as the Monte de Las Mercedes are covered in almost impenetrable “Laurisilva” or “Greenwood” forest. Also known as Laurel or bay-leaf tree forests they thrive in areas of constant moisture and temperature and are the last remaining sub tropical cloud forests on earth. Once widespread throughout the Mediterranean and North African regions millions of years ago, they now only exist in the western Canary Islands, Madeira and the Azores.
