Fellow Hikers on the Canary Islands
Fellow hikers wanted – I often receive requests from readers of this blog who ask me about opportunities to join them. Sometimes the point is that they would like to get to know interesting hiking tours from insiders. Another time, someone doesn’t want to hike alone and is therefore looking for company.
Hiking companies in the Canary Islands
As you will surely find out very quickly via the Internet, there are hiking and tour providers on all the Canary Islands. Have a look at the homepages and maybe you will find the right hiking company for you. Since I haven’t hiked with any of these providers yet, I can’t say much about it myself. One hiking company in the north of Tenerife that offers hiking tours is Aventura Hiking. In the south of Tenerife Andy offers hiking tours with Tenerife Guided Walks. But I would be very happy if you already have some experience. And even more, if you could share them with other readers here. So you can certainly help other readers who are looking for fellow hikers or tour providers. I am happy to read about your experiences. Just write a comment or even better register in the new forum (see below).
Private opportunities for fellow hikers
There are certainly private associations of hiking enthusiasts on many or even all of the Canary Islands who go hiking together. Some of them also offer tours for fellow hikers. If you know such associations or if you take private hikers with you, I would be happy to hear from you.
On Tenerife, for example, Wolfgang Kieckbusch offers private hikes. You can find his planned tours and hiking conditions on his website. In the south of Tenerife you can contact Franz Blank, who also takes private hikers with you at your own risk (small contribution to expenses of 2,-€ per person).
Do you know other possibilities for fellow hikers – perhaps also on the other Canary Islands?
Find fellow hikers via the Hiking Forum on Seven Islands
Increasingly, also individual hikers come to the islands. There are many reasons for this. And many of them are looking for fellow hikers so that they don’t have to hike alone and have a little company. That is why I decided to try a forum for fellow hikers on seven islands.
What is the forum now?
As you can see, the homepage Seven Islands has a new tab (Forum). If you register there, you will come to a new and therefore still completely empty forum. Maybe you are looking for a hiking partner for a certain time. Or you have a question about hiking. Then you can post there. The forum is still new. But by your active participation it could become naturally fast full. Therefore dare you calmly and enter. So we can all together share information about hiking and find fellow hikers.
I can write my own hiking articles. But a forum lives from the visitors. To bring the forum to life, I need your help. I hope it works and wish you a lot of fun in the new forum and of course while hiking,
