La Palma the place to be for outdoor sports
La Palma has been reinforcing the promotion of its tourist offer in fairs of the sector in Germany, Finland and Belgium.
The island had stands at the Matka tourism fairs in Helsinki, CMT in Stuttgart, Boot in Düsseldorf and Velofolies in Kortrijk, four important events for the La Isla Bonita brand.
The Matka and CMT fairs are held in two countries of reference for the emission of tourists to La Palma such as Finland and Germany. On the other hand, Velofolies, in Belgium, is the most important event dedicated to bicycle tourism of those taking place in the Netherlands, another area of Europe in which travellers maintain a great fidelity to the destination La Palma; and Boot, in Germany, is one of the most prestigious events in the nautical sector in Europe.
Tourism councillor, Alicia Vanoostende, said La Palma wanted to promote itself among visitors “who especially appreciate characteristics that make us very attractive, as our great offer of active leisure in nature to be a quiet island and a true paradise for both walkers and those who enjoy astronomical contemplation or those who practice outdoor sports.”
