Orienteering through the pine forests of El Hierro
La Hoya del Morcillo, in the centre of El Hierro, allows you to immerse yourself in magical surroundings, lush nature and great tranquillity so you can really experience every instant. This lush Canary Islands pine forest, near the little town of El Pinar, has a recreational area that is recommended as the start of the orienteering course. This is also a place where several trails cross, which is the icing on the cake for fans of hiking.
Unique areas of microrelief on El Hierro
This orienteering map, the southernmost one in all of Europe, is perhaps one of the best and fullest to be found with this type of vegetation. The moderate relief, changes in vegetation, areas with lots of detail and microrelief mean that constant, fine map reading is a must. There are very appealing and demanding routes. The little ones can also enjoy very safe courses, limited to the surroundings of the recreational area.
