I know my "Walking in Tenerife" page doesn't include any walks from Adeje. This doesn't mean there aren't any!

A good one to try would be the Barranco del Infierno, a walk which starts from the top end of Adeje. This dramatic gorge is one of Tenerife's most famous landmarks and there's a few euros charge for taking it.

It's a six mile walk and can take up to four hours.

When will it open?
by: Caña

The Barranco del Infierno was closed in August 2009 and to the best of my knowledge is still closed. The last I heard it was scheduled for summer (but which summer is another question.

I have attached a link which might help with walks in the south of the island http://walkingtenerife.blogspot.com/2010/03/barranco-del-infierno-getting-into-hell.html

Thanks, Caña, for that useful information - I didn't know that! The Barranco del Infierno actually has its own website (yes, really - www.barrancodelinfierno.es) and it says that the gorge is closed due to the danger of falling rocks and the risk of fatalities.

If you want to telephone the Barranco(!), the number is (+34) 922 782885.

You can still take in the Barranco whilst on a walk without descending into it: there is a footpath that takes you round the top, affording superb views of the dramatic scenery.

>>>Where can we obtain info re walks from Adeje?<<<

You can walk part of the Barranco del Infierno from the top end as John said, it starts in the village of Ifonche and is easy. There are several places that you can get information about walks in both Adeje and Arona (they run into each other).

I would suggest Real Tenerife Island Walks - this is the link to their old website walkingtenerife.blogspot.com but they have just updated to a new site and slowly transferring the information. The new site address is ht.ly/1WHNs. Both Jack and Andy live in the north and are professional writers so their directions are clear and simple and the routes delivered to your email within 24 hours.

"CyberHiker", at cyberhiker.co.uk. This is a neighbour of mine and he has now moved to Tenerife and walks all around the island.

"Tenerife Hiking", at tenerifehiking.com. Don´t know who does this website but the previous two are both friends so can happily recommend.

Hope this helps.
