The Village: Agaete

Charming Agaete Village will April Hiking week headquarter. All official hotels, the meeting points and social encounters are located on this village located by the sea. 

Agaete is a Village that has it all, the beautiful coast, balanced architecture, the charming atmosphere, the wonderful valley, gastronomy, special events…. and pecially friendly people. Agaete is frecuently visited by the locals, who go there for a swim, to eat on one of the nomerus restaurants or enjoying of the different possibilities the Village has to offer. We can trully say that we love coming to Agaete and we want to share it with al April Hiking week participants.

We would like to point out about Agaete that the sunsets are trully magnifiscent, offering wonferful views over  the so called dragon tale (west range of mountains of GRan Canaria) and Mount Teide, the higuest mountain in Spain.

Whe we thought about Agaete as a headquarter for the April Hiking Week we thought of days walking on the mountains and the possibility to enjoy of the sea during the afternoon.
