In the heart of Teno Rural Park, meander through high rock walls from the hamlet of Masca along its ravine to the ocean.
Masca Gorge is unique, not only because of its spectacular landscape, but also because of its fragility and exclusivity of the species of flora and fauna it is home to. The visit to it carries some risks, which are related to its characteristics as natural space (detachments, irregular and slippery pavement, adverse weather conditions, etc.) and other risks associated with hiking (falls, bumps, fatigue, etc.)
With the triple purpose of improving the quality of your experience in the ravine, ensuring your safety and preserving the heritage values of the environment, a system to regulate visits has been put in place. All the necessary information is on this official page and you can BOOK your ticket to access the trail.
