The La Llanía path is a gift for the senses that exhibits the greener side of the island thanks to a very well signposted circular route of little difficulty -suitable for children and adults- that surrounds you in a wonderful orchard of laurel forests, heather and canary pines.
As for the duration, the route has three variants: short, medium and long; identified with the colors green, orange and blue, respectively.
Green: 4,200 meters with an approximate duration of 2 hours
Orange: 5,600 meters with an approximate duration of 3 hours
Green: 7,400 meters with an approximate duration of 4 hours
After crossing under a beautiful wooden arch that marks the beginning of the route, you will enter El Brezal, an authentic fairytale green setting full of magnetism that is especially bewitching when the usual El Hierro mists come down to say hello.
In it you will find beautiful examples of bayal-brezal partially dressed by whimsical mosses and lichens, dense carpets of ferns covering the ground, large open areas decorated -in spring- with striking yellow and purple flowers, vertiginous repopulated slopes belonging to the Caldera de La Hoya de Fireba, a pine forest, several surprises and even a legend as the final prize in the area known as El bailadero de las brujas.
There are several strategic stops on the La Llanía hiking route but, without a doubt, the most interesting and the ones that arouse the greatest expectation are its two viewpoints (both included in the three variants): The Fireba viewpoint, with brutal views from the caldera of the same name; and the La Llanía viewpoint, with vertiginous and spectacular views of the El Golfo valley.
