Barranco del Infierno

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.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not walk in areas where it is not allowed and respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Do not light fires outside the permitted areas and be especially careful during the summer months.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
