The Museo de la Naturaleza y Arqueología (Museum of Nature and Archeology) (MUNA) in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is organising - within the Musa Festival, which has Scandinavia as its central theme - this Saturday at 11 am a "Nordic Walk" to discover, with Norwegian guide, Lars Amundsen, the footprints of Scandinavia in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Starting from the well-known flower clock of the García Sanabria Park, which was donated to the capital in 1958 by the Danish consul Peder Larsen, various corners of the city will be visited to relate the connections between Scandinavia and the Canaries and will allow discoveries of some characteristics of the life of those northern European countries.

Amundsen is a graphic designer and visual artist based in Tenerife since 2003. He likes to tell stories and since he arrived in Tenerife, has been attracted by the many anecdotes of Norwegian and Scandinavian characters who have spent moments of their life on the island.

Limited capacity: 15 people
