Ruta de los Almendros en Flor

The annual Almond Flower Route must be one of the prettiest walks in Tenerife and this year's 11th Edition, is to take place this weekend, February 9th and 10th.

Starting from Santiago del Teide plaza (map) at 9 a.m., it follows the old Camino Real (Royal Road) through the Reserva Forestal del Chinyero (Chinyero Forestry Reserve), Valle de Arriba, Las Manchas, Arguayo, to arrive at Arguayo cultural center at around 1 p.m.

Once again there are two walks organized (because of demand; the numbers increase every year); one on Saturday organized by the town hall in Santiago del Teide and the second, on Sunday, under the care of El Cardón S.L.

Places are limited and there's a symbolic fee (3 euros) for transport, so prior inscription in required via Santiago del Teide council's Concejalía de Cultura (Cultural Department) or by phone to 922 863 127 ext. 234 and 235. Although, 120 people are already signed up for Saturday's walk, which probably means that day is already "sold out."

Recommended: adequate clothing and shoes, water, food and a camera. The latter particularly if you wish to enter the associate photographic contest.
