Tenerife News & Events 12/04/2010

  • Stepping out onto the terrace yesterday morning and catching my first glimpse of Mount Teide coated in a thick layer of snow elicited an involuntary ‘WOW’.It got me thinking of all the places on Tenerife where you turn a corner or emerge above a ridge and are stopped in your tracks by the drama in front of you. Many of those WOW moments come when I’m out walking and they leave an indelible mark on the memory and an itching to go back and capture it again.Here are just a few of those special places.

  • The Tenerife government hs just advised that walking in the upper La Orotava Valley is being prohibited from today, 3rd December until the 8th December.This is purely for safety reasons. The network of paths in the area have been seriously affected by the storm of last weekend with fallen trees blocking a number of paths.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
