One of the few climbs in Europe that will let you gain 2000 meters in one go! This long relentless challenge of a climb starts on the edge of the resort of Puerto de la Cruz. Then grinds its way up the cliff side main road up a very steep few kilometres to the busy town of Orotava, which at near 500 meters altitude is already a serious climb. When you’re here the toughest part of the climb is behind you yet it’s here where you start the official Strava segment for Teide with about 28km of relentless climbing to go! This side of Tenerife gets a much damper climate than the popular southern side so it’s got a more European feel with the trees displaying autumn colours early on. At about the halfway mark you rise above the pueblos into Teide’s pine forested northern slopes.
