The Village: Agaete
Charming Agaete Village will be the Discovery Hiking Week headquarter. All official hotels, the routes departure meeting point and the social encounters are located in this village located by the sea.
Agaete is a village that has it all, the beautiful coast, balanced architecture, charming atmosphere, wonderful valley, gastronomy, special events…. and especially friendly people. Agaete is frecuently visited by the island locals, who go there for a swim, to eat in one of the numerous restaurants or to enjoy 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 all Discovery Hiking week participants.
We would like to invite you to enjoy Agaete’s sunsets, trully magnificent, due to the exceptional views over the so called “dragon tale” mountain range and the gigantic Mount Teide (Tenerife).
When we thought about Agaete as a headquarter for the Discovery Hiking Week we thought of days walking in the mountains and the possibility to enjoy the sea in the afternoon.
How to reach Agaete once you are in Gran Canaria
You have to take 2 buses:
The maximum number of people in the group will be 20 in order to maximize the experience in nature while you are enjoying the Discovery Hiking Week. In case we would have more than 20 people joining the Discovery Hiking Week we would create a second/third group, which would always walk in different routes every day. Still we would entice that all participants gather during the evening social encounters in Agaete’s Old Town.
The Discovery Hiking Week is a special occasion to meet people coming from different places in the world sharing good moments in nature. So, if you are a solo traveller, don’t think twice, this is your perfect trip!.
