Virtual hiking to maintain the essence of the Tenerife Walking Festival 2021

Tenerife Walking Festival 2021

The Tenerife Walking Festival 2021 will take place between March 12 and 19 and all lovers of nature activities and hiking can register for the event, to follow it from anywhere in the world. The Cabildo, through Turismo de Tenerife, announced last week the opening of registrations for the 'Tenerife Walking Festival' (TWF), which, in this edition, will be held in online format. The objective is to keep the interest in this event alive. 

The opening day, scheduled for March 12 starting at 4:00 p.m. (local time), will be streamed through the official Tenerife Tourism channels and on the virtual stage of the festival. The rest of the programming will take place between March 12 and 19 (the schedules are proposed to cover different zones, given the international nature of the event), and registrations, free of charge, can be made on the website www.tenerifewalkingfestival.com

The proposal for this edition combines the organization of webinars, created specifically for the event, in which topics such as environmental management or the positioning of destinations through unique routes will be addressed. This is the case of the spectacular route 040, which joins Playa del Socorro with Pico del Teide. The development of these activities in a sustainable framework will also be discussed, without forgetting the perspective of the current health crisis.

Virtual hiking to keep the essence of the TWF

In order to maintain the essence of this annual event, a virtual hiking module is offered, which will allow hikers to discover routes and learn about the characteristics and wealth of the area. There are three trails that can be travelled in this particular way; the circular route of Samara, a volcanic route with beautiful sunsets, together with Baracán-Teno Alto-Faro de Teno, a perfect combination between laurel forests and the sea. There will also be the route that connects the Montes de Anaga hostel with Antequera beach. A dizzying descent, which culminates with the return to Las Teresitas beach by motorboat.

In addition to this digital offer, there are also two face-to-face routes aimed at the local public on Sunday, March 14, which will be organized by the Cabildo, together with volunteer groups and companies from the sector.

The five previous editions of the Tenerife Walking Festival have positioned the event as one of the benchmarks for hiking throughout Europe. In the last edition, held in 2019, it brought together 200 participants of more than 10 different nationalities, including tour operators, travel agents, the media and the final audience. An annual event that has allowed Tenerife to be placed on the international map for the practice of this activity.

Hiking is the most popular sporting activity for visitors to Tenerife. In 2019, before the health crisis, some 580,000 tourists practiced it (9.7% of the total on the island). Some 28.5% of all tourists who go hiking are Germans. Other relevant markets are the national, the French and, to a lesser extent, the British. Teide National Park is the preferred location for 22% of hikers. The Anaga Rural Park is also an outstanding enclave of activity.
