Until April 2nd Tenerife will be home of European walkers. Yesterday, Tuesday, March 29th, we welcomed another year the Tenerife Walking Festival; a gathering of hikers from all over Europe who share their passion for nature and hiking, and this time we gather to explore the different landscapes of the island: forest, volcano and coast.


Trails and activities

With the focus on the path, we will not only hike the natural landscape of the island, during the festival we will also explore villages, cities, customs, scenic spots and local food.
