Each route will be free, although a donation of 2 euros per person will be requested (via soydelapalma.com to benefit people affected by the La Palma eruption.

This initiative is divided into two groups, entitled ‘Senderos con Cultura’ (Trails with Culture), with 10 routes that will end on La Laguna coastline and that will link the territory to the history, mythology, traditions and literature of La Laguna, and Walk & Talk, the latter designed for the practice of different languages, to meet people from other cultures and promote active learning, all with the landscape and traditions of La Laguna as the setting.
