What a grand season it was-warm and dry-leaving the cagoule to sulk for another Winter in the bottom of the rucsac. Just a smatering of snow on Teide in february. .Come and join us

The four-weekly walks cycle introduced some old favourites. Again this coming Winter we will have a monthly “Walk amongst the Stars” evening in the National Park on Week Two, cloudless sky permitting. Torches provided


The hotel was booked out early on and we had to decline a number of walkers who left it too late.We are advised by Management to advise our Walkers to book as early as possible this coming Winter and a number have already done that, including two groups, before leaving Tenerife!. Stays of 28 to 34 nights now get a 5% discount and stays of 35 nights plus 10%( meals excepted).

 

The pool heating is now solar-powered and a temperature of 25C. is being achieved; the warmest pool in Puerto. Free wi-fi is available in most rooms and the pool area. A mini HDMI lead will connect your Android devices to the TV.

Nearly everyone recognizes the need to be properly-clothed and equipped for all weather, especially at altitudes of c.7,000ft. A few still need to take greater care about ultra-violet exposure though and the need for sticks as an aid on descents. Of course, having the coach with us all day means that we can make a decision about clothing and equipment at the starting point and leave what is not required on board. Recommended restaurants, for those who opt for B&B or self-catering, and a list of things to do on days off is printed on our Welcome sheet, on arrival. The weekly group meal has been a great success and appreciated by all who participate. We enjoyed both the Tenerife Symphony orchestra in the superb concert hall in Santa Cruz and the International symphonic programme which runs from mid-January to mid-February. There are usually other local musical events in Puerto itself which will be on the programme when you arrive.


As we pay for the coach with euros, we will need the balance of your deposit in euros on arrival. The hotel will accept most credit/debit cards or euros as payment and will require this when you collect your passport. This year, due to the horrific events in Syria, our KWA donationswent to -Save the Children fund and Friends of Tenerife charities. If you feel you would like to contribute to our “giving something back” to those in desperate need, we would be pleased to include your contribution next year. We’ve enjoyed all of your company and we know you have enjoyed meeting each other and us. Our “returning client rate” is over 90% so we must be getting something right. Do tell friends and fellow walkers about us as in these difficult, economic times, they need to know about our splendid walks amongst such lovely scenery, with a quality hotel to come back to and at the lowest possible cost.
