Tunnel closure – on the Acantilados de Los Gigantes

Klippenweg über die Acantilados

On a hike from Los Gigantes via the cliff path today, I noticed that massive doors are ready to close off the tunnel between the Acantilados de Los Gigantes and the Barranco Seco (see picture).

Then the popular hiking route “Double Tunnel Trip” will no longer be passable. However, I don’t know if it is a temporary closure due to construction work or if it is a permanent closure. If anyone knows more, I would appreciate feedback.

As it seems that other tunnels in Barranco de Masca and Barranco Natero are also closed, the possibilities of the interesting Galeria and Canal walks in the region could be significantly reduced. If you encounter closed tunnels, please leave a comment here for other walkers. Then I can make appropriate comments on the individual walks. Thank you in advance for your help,

  1. Hello
    We just did the tour last Saturday, 04.04.2021. we noticed the door as well, but it has not been installed yet.
    So we did the double tunnel hike without any problems.
    On that note I would like to 5hsnknyounfor your great website. I use it a lot as an inspiration for our hiking trips.
    Great job.

    1. Thank you so much Hanna for telling about the actual situation. I will there walk soon and see what had happened.

  2. Hi,
    as of May 17 2021 door are build into entrance on both ends of the tunnel. Good part is they are wide open as for now.
    Thanks for great tip for a hike, your posts are great inspiration for program on Tenerife.
    BTW. I did perhaps the shortest possible Accantilago de Los Gigantes double tunnel variant, continuing through El Atajo de Victor and El Largo Tunnel. I did not find that on any post on internet and as there is no path on the map from the lower end of El Largo.
    Turned out the get from El Largo to TF-PR-65 is no harder than other parts of the trip.

    1. Thanks for update description Vit

      1. ¿Se puede transitar por el Atajo de Victor y atravesar el Túnel El largo?
        porque no entendí la explicación… gracias

        1. Recientemente, se han preparado puertas por todas partes para cerrar los túneles. No sé si eso ha ocurrido ya. Hace apenas una semana, un excursionista informó de que el túnel seguía abierto. Si vas, te agradecería mucho un comentario sobre la situación actual. Gracias, Dagmar

        2. I’m not great at language of your tribe, but I think this is what you asked for:

          1. Yes, that it is, but this tunnel will be closed soon – the one on the cliff way
