The last Island on the girl's journey was El Hierro, one of the not so known Canary Islands. El Hierro, nicknamed Isla del Meridiano (the "Meridian Island"), is the smallest and farthest south and west of the Canary Islands. But nevertheless with some amazing scenery and trails for the girls to shred.

As most of the Canary Islands, El Hierro offers a great mixture of different climate zone. From dry desert like regions on the top of the mountains to rain forest trails on the way down.
