Original post 11 January: Santiago del Teide Ayuntamiento’s annual Almendros en Flor is always one of the most popular Almond Blossom Route campaigns in Tenerife, and it’s now in its 22nd year. These walks are always hugely popular because they’re through a stunning environment in the hills when the almond blossom is blooming, surrounded by beauty with an unbelievable scent filling the air. The council says that 2019’s Rutas will offer, as always, a range of walks and activities, and be organized in collaboration with various council departments and the Cabildo itself: as always, walkers are advised to wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and to bring water, sun protection, and a walking stick or pole. The programme will be unveiled shortly, so for anyone waiting to know when and where it’s going to be happening this year, you won’t have to wait much longer.
