The aim of this course is to enhance connectivity with nature through engagement with hiking in Tenerife’s natural environments. In doing so, it will also optimise opportunities for course participants to (i) enhance mental health and wellbeing; (ii) support mindfulness; and (iii) help build resilience, self-esteem and confidence. Hiking is both dependent and connected to nature, as an opportunity to both connect us with the health of our bodies and the natural world. The course will explore ways that hiking can exist in harmony with nature and support a greener future and economy for Tenerife. Our mental health, self-confidence and employability can be boost by participation in nature projects.

The biological diversity of our active volcanic island, vineyards, microclimate changes, Canary Laurel forest from the Tertiary Period and black sand coastland, a magical place to connect your mind and body and restart. This mini continent of Tenerife offers 1.500km of certified trails and 47% of the territory are protected areas.

The course will use hiking as a tool to promote environmental awareness and proactively address the broader environmental challenges. The course will explore how hiking’s close and intimate relationship with nature can be optimised and leveraged sustainably, whilst also supporting and advocating nature-based work in local communities throughout Tenerife.
