The island has a trails’ network to travel it completely, heritage of a past, not even too remote, when people and animals use to move from one village to another only by walking.
…why walking with us?
…certainly not because otherwise you will get lost!… since most of the trails are well marked, but to have the opportunity to enrich a beautiful and healthy hike in a wonderful and very various nature with something we can add to it: you will get to know the variety of the nature interpreting its changes depending of the altitude and the exposition, learning how to discover the native flora and its peculiarity; you will observe the many geologic forms given by the hundreds volcanoes with different kinds of eruptions during the format of the island; you will go back to the time of the “Bimbache” and the Conquerors learning about the history through the chronicles an legends still alive along the trails and looking at the future with the important projects of the Island.
With your car you can get to a Meeting Point where each route begins and where we will bring you back with our vehicle at the end of the route.
Our routes are for you if you like to walk and that is something you usually do on a regular basis; you are in acceptable physical shape with no health problems; you can overcome certain unevennesses both going down and going up.
We recommend appropriate clothing and comfortable footwear (preferably hiking boots). It is also advisable to bring enough food and drink, in addition to sunscreen, hat, protective jacket against the wind or rain, trekking poles and warm clothing, especially in the winter months. Certainly a good idea is to use different layers of clothing that can be easily removed and replaced.
Hiking brings us closer to natural environments and allows us to enjoy them calmly, observing and learning. We hikers move respecting the places where we pass, trying to leave as little trace of our presence as possible. We take care of the natural environment and the trails, always remembering that nature is life.
Do not throw garbage or leave waste, be respectful of nature, its flora and fauna and respect the rules of the places where you pass.
