Adeje council have announced a series of mountain walks around the island

30 april 2021
The Adeje department of citizen participation has re-launched the ‘Ponte las Botas’ (Put on your walking shoes) programme with 10 different routes around the island from now until the end of the year.  The first two excursions are already fully booked.  According to Councillor Maria Clavijo Maza, “rambling is not just a sporting activity, it can become a cultural outing, an environmental event, and also involved civic and educational elements”.
The Ponte las Botas programme has been developed as part of an overall Sustainable Development Goals project, with particular focus on health, education about the environment, sustainability, and the conservation of our ecosystems. 
Walks take place on Saturdays and include transfers to the starting and finishing point as well as specialised guides.
The walks are in three distinct levels. The low difficulty rambles are on May 8th, in the Anaga Natural Park, on June 26th in the Teno Rural Park and on September 25th in Teide National Park.
Medium level walks are scheduled for June 12th in the Chinyero Natural Reserve, September 11th in Anaga, October 16th in Garajonay National Park and November 6th in the Corona Forestal Park. 
The most difficult walk is the Tres Aricos Camino Real walk, on September 27th, a 5.30 hour trek. 
You must register in advance for the walks, via the Adeje web,, from 30 days before each ramble and you must confirm your participation 4 days before to allow those on the waiting list to avail of any cancelations. All walks are weather-dependent, and also participants must conform to all Covid-related restrictions in place at the time, as well as wearing a mask and using appropriate hand gel.
