LA PALMA – THE HIKER’S ISLAND

Nature-lovers have a new appointment on Friday 22th, Saturday 23th and Sunday 24th August at the sixth edition of the International Festival of Hiking and Mountaineering 2014, which has as its departure point the Plaza de España in Santa Cruz de La Palma, converted into the Hiker’s Square. 

Hiking, as well as being a sport, is the formula for introducing people to the natural environment, and acquainting them with their surroundings through heritage and ethnographic elements. On La Palma, the latter form part of the history, identity and collective heritage of the island.

We are therefore dealing with a resource of priceless value which the Government of La Palma has recognised the worth of and has developed, through the equipping, rehabilitation and thematization of paths, and of the ancient communication routes at island level. In this way, an approach is provided for both the local population and for those who visit the island.

Our island, with its impressive landscapes, its sky, and its extensive network of hiking paths stands out as a privileged location for practising all kinds of outdoor sports and leisure activities, the whole year round - activities of the type that this Festival aims to promote. It is precisely the variety of landscapes and the natural wealth of La Palma which constitute the island’s unique beauty, and its irresistible power of attraction.

The same philosophy as in previous editions of the Hiking Festival will be continued, with the emphasis on thematic routes and the backing of local products. As a novelty, and continuing with our eagerness to innovate, thematic routes with underwater environments will be incorporated, paths which partly go through water. In this way, an approach to the island’s heritage and ethnographic resources is provided for both the local population and visitors alike, true to our desire to value local heritage and contribute to Island Sustainability.

The main purpose of the Hiking Festival 2014 is to round off the campaign to promote the island as “La Palma, the Hiker’s Island”, which has been our ambition for several years, with the Festival held annually since 2009.
