What you'll do

Come and discover one of the most precious and prized aromas in the world: the vanilla. Where is it from? How does it grow? How are these pods with a pleasant scent produced? During your visit to Finca la Canopea, you will discover how, in a regenerated subtropical ecosystem, the vanilla plant acclimates and produces. During the flowering period (between April and july), you will attend the pollination of the flowers, the harvest of the pods and / or their preparation. My vanilla production is unique in the Canaries.
At Finca la Canopea, our ambition is to transform a desert into a rich and varied ecosystem made up of many edible plants. It is in this pleasant environment that you will live your experience.

Belgian by origin, I have lived for ten years in Los Silos where I work in welcoming and informing travelers as well as in the development of a permaculture and environmental education project. I also offer an experience "Discover permaculture with your 5 senses".
My travels in tropical countries have marked me. I have fond memories of the flavors and aromas of the various exotic ingredients. Spices are part of a passion that I love to share.

Where you'll be

The experience takes place in our farm located on the outskirts of the small village of Los Silos (north coast of Tenerife), at the foot of the Teno rural park. It is a natural space of great beauty, semi-protected, where we create an oasis inspired by the principles of permaculture and ecological agriculture. You will discover a land that was almost deserted when we arrived and gradually transformed into an edible forest.

We loved our experience at La Canopea farm. The subtropical environment is wonderful and the vanilla themed tour is exotic. What we have learned about this spice and its path is surprising and full of anecdotes. Thanks to Pascal for sharing his passion.
