Kayak at the seaThe Youth Exchange is finishing and one of the most difficult task, the Romería is already done. Now we deserve a good trip to discover the amazing nature of the island. For that we had a special activity prepared, thanks to the help of “El Cardón” we have the chance to discover the Northwest corner of the Island in a Kayak trip of around 3 hours.

We split in couples and start by learning the basic skills to drive a boat, and then just go.. and learning by doing. Every couple, has to adapt to the rhythm and speed of the other, and coordinate to go in the desired destination. It seems not so easy to everyone, but with a little bit of help all the group enjoyed a great experience on open waters.

AnagaThe Anaga Rural Park is a protected natural area that has a great landscape, natural and cultural relevance. Nature and human settlements form a rural, harmonious and beautiful scenery. Through a 4 hours trekking, we discovered the natural richness of that natural park, that covers from the top of the mountains to the coast (140m2).
