2017 Hike Gran Canaria El Rincon - Caldera de los Marteles - Tenteniguada 3rd April

We were late leaving the marina so we took a taxi to the Temo bus station and caught the 1010 hrs nr 303 bus to San Mateo where we hired a taxi to take us to the start of our hike in El Rincon (cost €14 ). Below is the taxi rank in S Mateo
The below Viewranger map shows our route in green
After leaving our taxi, the hike started with climbing these stone steps
Very soon we encountered our first of many beautiful Tajinastes on our route


The Gorse was also in bloom
More Tajinastes

Tenteniguada coming into view

El Rincon . Our descent from here was long and steep - our sticks were invaluable to save our knees
Caught the 1700 hrs nr 13 bus from Tenteniguada to Telde then the 1750 hrs bus to Club Real Nautica in Las Palmas. All in all a super hike in perfect weather made even more special by the Tajinaste etc floral display
