On Trail Travel Tours you learn what makes honey. Namely that, thanks to tropical weather in Canary Islands and thanks to near often flowering pollen, the company isn't restricted by season. They can produce a steady stream of unique honeys from Canary plants such as the naranjo, tedera, pitera o barrilla and the popular perennially tajinaste. Their thousands of colonies roam within two to four miles of where they're placed the company keeps locations near flowering plants across the all island. Because the relative seasonality lack, the insects here work really hard.
The business carefully rotated the hives so the busy bees are saved to don't burn out from year-round collecting. The most interested part of this Route is the chance to see how many bee colonies settle in their yard, a veritable Tour into another guide world by staff Bee Docents. That queen, he said, could be rule a Canary hive for about two years, a much shorter life than mainland bees, which given a fall and winter break, can live for as long as five years.
Hike - Tenteniguada
The pinewood of its summits constitutes a habitat in good state of conservation where the majority of its poultry population is distributed, reason why it has been included in the network of special zone for protection of the birds of the EU. At the base of these summits are located some caves of ethnographic value. The park plays an important role in hydrological catchment. In the higher parts the Pino Canario predominates.
Among the most outstanding advantages of the pine forest are the maintenance of atmospheric humidity, it acts as a sink of C02, it avoids erosion and recovers springs. In the lower levels, below 830 m, we can find among other varieties: monteverde, madroños (spurge) and Dracanea (orquidea). From the terraces of Degollada de los Marteles with steep slopes and isolated topographically we contemplate exceptional panoramas of the most eastern part of the park, with the Degollada de Botija and Los Alfaques, between Morro del Guanile and Roque Grande. The park plays an important role in soil protection and aquifer replenishment. In the south area prey are abundant, some of them have a huge dimensions.
Accidentada topography in whose interior are small hamlets like Tajinaste and Roque Grande, finding places like the Cross of Tenteniguada, with a green tonality is very unique. We speak of an enclave with a combination of colors and aromas typical of the sunrise, where we recreate our sight in a succession of small plateaus, crossed by ravines. The small springs that dot the trail are easily recognizable, because of the greenness of the juncalillos that grow in its channel, located where they end up steep slopes.
