Article summary and large selection of GPS hiking tracks
Too bad. I am so glad I made all the tunnels and galerias a few times in the last years.
Challenging hikes for expirienced hikers, where you need to be surefooted and free from vertigo And stunning views over the coast.
And I loved to jump an run the Baranco trail once each time I’m on tenerife.
Now I’ve seen the new entry and the rules 2 weeks ago. I won’t go there again. It’s only sad for the Bar Blanky. I loved to sit there to finish the day.
You are right – it is a shame. But up to now some tunnels are still open. Let s face, what the future brings
We did the two tunnel walk Monday no problem with tunnels but the marking on the path wasn’t good
Thanks for information – I was there last week – we will see what happens
We were there yesterday (7-11-2021). Both tunnels are (still) open. We did the descent from El Molledo to Playa de Barranco Seco through the eponymous gorge. Then we took the lower tunnel that lead to the coastal route to Los Gigantes. Very beautiful hike!! Good alternative instead of Masca, now you need a permit and at the moment of wrijving it is only possible during the weekends.
Note 1: Though at the end of the route in Los Gigantes (from there a starting point) we saw a big sign that the coastal route is officially closed. But many people (with sure-footedness and without fear of heights) still do this route and it’s worth it.
Note 2: The higher tunnel to Taimaimo we didn’t ourselves, but other hikers told us this one is open too. And that there was a third tunnel too (?) and this one was also open.
Thank you for the information – I was there (both tunnels and channel pass) last Saturday – it seems, that there is work on the tubes in the moment and everything is open. Let´s see, how it will go on.
(Date has to be: 8-11-2021)
Does anyone know whether the tunnels are open now? Visit febr 22
Thanks Fokke (Netherlands)
Until today most of the tunnels are open, but the lower tunnel from Tamaimo is blocked from a bar owner:https://leo-reuter.de/siebeninseln/en/up-to-date/bar-operator/ and the water tunnel at Cuevas Negras is closed:https://leo-reuter.de/siebeninseln/en/up-to-date/tunnel-closure/
Very disappointed to find the first tunnel from Los Gigantes locked. Never the less a wonderful 2 hours of walking. Would be good to get an official comment on this from the authorities who closed it.
Thanks for bringing all this together on your most informative web-page.

Thanks Graham for information. What do you mean with first tunnel? The tunnel on the cliff way or the Tamaimo tunnel?
Tamaimo is “opened”, except for the awkward situation with awkward guy at the gate, who wants 10 euro for pass. Graham, can you confirm that lower tunnel is totally closed? I was going to go there tomorrow with my kid and wouldn’t disappoint him…
On the 20th of February, I took the path from Los Gigantes going north along the cliffs, and passed through the tunnel closest to the sea. Then went up through the valley along Barranco Mancha de Los Diaz and returned to Los Gigantes through the Tamaimo tunnel. However, when reaching the end of the tunnel, I was met by a closed gate guarded by a civilian-dressed guy. I refused to pay the 10 euro he requested, and he eventually let me through. I went to a nearby house where “tickets” could be purchased, but ticket seller did not have any papers documenting that he had any rights to charge money for entering the tunnel, so I did not pay.
Thanks for coming along here – since some days the tunnel is open again 🙂
Just walked the Tamaimo tunnel. The iron gate was not attached to its hinges and no strange guy asking for 10 euro ?
Status October 2022: The cliff tunnel and the middle Tamaimo tunnel are closed. The lower and upper Tamaimo tunnels are “still” open. I look forward to receiving up-to-date information.
