These boots were made for walking! 

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

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, www.adeje.es, 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.
