Lake District & Laurel Forrest Walk

This is a relaxing B/C walk of about 4 hours which takes us along old grassy lane ways and small potato fields.

In April/May the abundance of color in the foliage is quite stunning. We pass by tranquil ponds admiring the nesting coots and continue up into an old laurel forest following a path to the deserted hamlet of Los Bollico. Here we have lunch before going to a viewing point to look out at the island of La Gomera, El Hierro, La Palma and down over the tops of the Teno Mountains. Our return takes us past the peak of Montana Jala and down through the ponds to our transport parked at the Fleytas restaurant.

About Martin

Welcome to my website. My name is Martin O Connell. I am a member of Mountaineering Ireland. I walk with Blackrock Hillwalking Club in Cork and Cork Mountaineering Club.


In 2008 I successfully climbed Kilimanjaro the highest mountain in Africa. I have been walking in Tenerife for over 15 years and I have put together a selection of the most scenic and diverse walks in different locations on the island. The walks are located in The National Park, The Teno Mountains in the north west and the Anaga Mountains in the North.


I have walks suitable for all grades of walkers in groups of 5 to 15. In the past 6 years I have led club walks varying in size from 2 to 24 walkers. As well as leading the walks I arrange your accommodation and transport on the island for the week. Accommodation is in private villas on a twin sharing basis in the south of the island about 10 minutes from the airport. After drinks each evening we head out to one of the local restaurants which are pre booked. Aer Lingus and Ryanair have flights from Dublin, Cork, Shannon, Knock, and Belfast into Tenerife South Airport on a weekly basis.
