Haría – Barranco Ternesía & Atalaya

Wonderful and easy hike with small climbs and beautiful views around Haría.

View of Maguez from the summit

This family-friendly hike starts between the two villages Maguéz and Haría – located in the north of the island of Lanzarote. There we enter the little-known but all the more enchanting Barranco Ternesía.
This Barranco is a jewel, and offers in winter an incredibly diverse vegetation. But also in summer we like to show you the peculiarities that are hidden there.

The further course of the barranco leads us to the picturesque town of Haría with its Moorish ambience. After about 500m we leave Haría in northern direction and walk uphill on an unpaved road towards “Atalaya de Haría”, where we have a first big rest before we continue towards the summit. On the circular route around this small mesa we see the picturesque town of Haría from different perspectives and there are fantastic photo opportunities before we take another break on the summit, during which we enjoy the definitely most beautiful view of the village of Maguéz.

The way back to the starting point is an easy descent through a meadow and a wide path, passing picturesque agricultural fincas. As on all hikes, you will receive valuable and entertaining information about flora and fauna, as well as history and geology.
