When we venture on the impressive hiking routes in Tenerife, doing it in a group not only multiplies the fun but also the responsibility. Here at Outdooractivitiestenerife, we believe that knowing and following the rules of group hiking is essential to enjoy a safe and enriching experience. Therefore, we present you a simple guide to make your group adventure unforgettable.

Hiking Safety Rules List

  1. Plan your route: Know your destination, check the weather forecast and make sure your route is suitable for your fitness level.
  2. Inform someone of your plan: Always let someone who is not accompanying you know your route and your estimated time of return.
  3. Bring appropriate equipment: This includes appropriate footwear, enough water, sun protection, maps and a compass or GPS.
  4. Respect nature: Don’t leave trash, don’t feed wild animals, don’t collect plants or rocks, and stay on marked trails to avoid erosion.
  5. Minimize your impact: Practice the principle of “leave no trace” at all times. This means camping and hiking in a way that does not disturb the natural environment.
  6. Control your pets: If pets are allowed on the trail, they must be under control at all times, either by leash or verbal commands, depending on area regulations.
  7. Respect other visitors: Keep noise to a minimum and let groups that are going faster than you pass.
  8. Be self-sufficient: Carry and know how to use a first aid kit. Being prepared for small accidents or changes in weather can make a big difference.
  9. Respect private property: If your route crosses or borders private property, be sure to follow established paths and respect signs and fences.
  10. Be aware of your ability: Do not overestimate your physical condition or that of your hiking companions. Make sure everyone in the group can complete the chosen route.
