A group of top hikers have been giving Tenerife’s network of footpaths the once over.
However, their perusal and comments have been at the invitation of the Tenerife Cabildo which is keen to provide keen walkers with interesting and safe routes across the island. It’s estimated that around 12 per cent of visitors to Tenerife go hiking at some stage and it is the second most valued activity after visits to theme parks.
The Cabildo invited about 40 walkers from the European Ramblers’ Association to test out a route known as GR 131 which runs through eleven municipalities.
Tourism chief José Manuel Bermúdez said the association was the best in Europe and it was hoped the party of 40 would pass on their recommendations to its membership of around three million walkers.
