Beautiful landscape bursting with nature

The Barranco del Infierno (Ravine from Hell), so called due its abrupt features, is a protected natural space in the municipality of Adeje, in the south-west of Tenerife. Along with other ravines and rocks in the area, it forms the Barranco del Infierno Special Nature Reserve, a beautiful landscape bursting with nature and lots of biodiversity that houses numerous endemic species. Noteworthy birds include the booted eagle, the raven, the kestrel and the Scopoli’s shearwater. This nature reserve, which is also of significant archaeological value, is home to countless caves with interesting cave carvings.

Go into the ravine and hike along the trail

Currently, in order to preserve the environment and prevent disruption to the development of species that inhabit this wonderful place, access to the Barranco del Infierno trail is limited to 300 people a day, which means you must book in advance. This spectacular natural space reveals striking scenery to visitors all along the 3-hour route, which ends at a fascinating, 200-metre-high waterfall – a reward you are unlikely to forget. We recommend wearing suitable footwear and taking the trail on cooler days.
