Volcanes

The mythical Faro de Fuencaliente, at sea level, will be the starting point of this race. From this legendary place to Los Llanos de Aridane along the impressive route of the volcanoes. A track that will take you through some of the most magical and beautiful corners of La Isla Bonita. With vertiginous ascents and descents that will make you feel the strength of a territory that emerges from the lava. A physically and mentally demanding race, but so beautiful that you will forget the effort.
