Do not miss out on this one !

We did this walk in just about three hours, in a group of people of all ages. It´s not a an easy walk, but you forget all that because it's like nothing else you will see.

Masca Valley is a must do you need to be an extremely confident driver because the roads are steep and twisty with tight sharp turnings . The views are exquisite and out of this world such a beautiful part of the island

The drive down to Mesca then up again was an adventure. The drive in both directions was slow and arduous. But, the views and appreciation were well worth the effort. Would do it again in a heart beat. I took so many photos but non of them did justice to the experience. All I can say is just do it.... More

We went up as part of excursion Volcao Teide + Masca, and were amazed by this village hidden behind the mountain so that it cannot be seen from the seaside, but you can see the ocean from up there! Very small place, but beautiful! Road that leads to it is very, very steep so I would recommend going organised, to... More

Love, love, loved this place. Very worthwhile after the scary drive in. Machu Picu of Europe indeed. However, pick pockets are at work here. My backpack was unzipped by first thief on the descending footpath. The guy even engaged in a chat with me. (Not Spanish...) The 2nd thief went in for the dip when I stopped at the fruit... More

Visited the small town of Masca, whilst on a day trip, and what a drive down! It added an additional 90 mins to our trip, and personally I didn't think it was worth it! If you're into rock faces and wild drops whilst driving to and from it, then it's perfect, otherwise, I couldn't see the attraction just to visited... More

We have heard that this is must see so we went there. First if a rollercoaster is not your hobby watch out how to get there. Last 5 km part of a journey could take anything up to 1hour!!! Road is very narrow and deadly bendy. How the bus drivers can navigate this road is a mistery for me. The... More

We took public transport up to Masca easy to get from the bus station (take a jacket can be cooler up there!) we had a lovely lunch in the small visitor center, enjoyed the breathtaking views then visited the ancient village before enjoying the 5hr walk down to a small beach where you are picked up by boat and taken...
