Hi Magoo, sorry can't help you there. I've driven to Cofete also more recently got the new 4 x 4 bus from Morro Jable for a cost of €2.50 each way. If you check the posts by Captain Sensible a video of the journey there, much easier than walking. If I'm correct it's approximately 26 kms off road. The furthest we have done is Las Salinas to Pozo Negro!! Good Luck if you do it.

Cheers Freda

Hi Freda

I wasn't planning on walking all the way from Moro Jable. There is a "Car Park" at the start of the footpath & the walk one way would be about 4 - 5 miles over the mountain. There are photos of the route on Google Earth

Thanks Anyway

Magoo

We joined the walking group this week and would like to thank Whispa and all the others in the group, both human and canine, for two lovely walks. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon.

Hi Freda

Elaine and I are over for 11days 20/2 and then another 11days 18/4 staying in a villa on Las Salinas Golf and would be interested in joining you.  How far do you normally walk and what type of foot wear is needed? We can manage a steady 500mt up hill walk :D but not a Climb :(

Thanks in anticipation

John

Hi John n Elaine, thanks for your interest in our walks. They aren't strenuous walks, mostly level, so sandals will be fine. We are looking to do a more serious walk which involves hills and track walking, so keep your eye on the updates on here. Normally finished by lunch time, with a break for coffee. We call it social walking to make friends. Looking forward to meeting you both.

Cheers Freda

Hi, I'm not sure, but if you put a post on here to ask or maybe start up your own group. We've made a lot of great friends and learned a lot too as everyone has had different experiences over here in Fuerte. Good luck

Hello Malcolm
I raised a similar query to Freda/Whispa a couple of years ago about a walking group in the north of the island but never got around to doing anything about getting a group going. Why don't you start a new thread (freeing up this one for Whispa's group) asking if anyone else is interested -  start small and see how it goes? I organised a hiking group in the UK for over 20 years and it was very rewarding, both the walks and the social aspect, although I can't manage steep hills or rough ground these days which does limit me somewhat out here!
Happy to discuss offline - PM me?
Regards, Tamara

I think something like that needs someone with more local knowledge, however, we are moving over semi permanently next year and if no one has taken up the mantle, then I will give it a go, only proviso is, being Welsh, I need regular stops at'watering holes'.

We do have one in Corralejo. FB 'Corralejo Walkers Group'. Apply to join and then you can see what we do from all the pics. Fridays tend to be a volcano climb (optional though if you want to just stroll around the bottom), Tuesdays are more level but tend to involve Barrancos, Malpais or bedrock areas. Normally last about 3 hours but we do always end up in a bar. Normally Pablo's in Tama so the drivers can have one or 6.

Hi rich, thanks for your info on Correlejo walks, I have tried to locate you on FB without any luck, it would be good once in a while to meet up with you as some of our walkers are a bit more adventurous, so would be nice to do something a bit different. Maybe I'm entering it wrong???? Perhaps you can email me your link please fiftyplusinfuerte@yahoo.co.uk

Many thanks Freda

I've searched for this and can't find it under pages or groups on FB. Could you post a link please? I'd like to join some of your walks when we're there. Thanks.

Ignore me! I've just seen your link in subsequent post and have asked to join!  :D

Hi Windermeregolfer, I'm waiting for an update on the laws, but it appears that the hunters shouldn't be hunting during the week, it is only on a Sunday. They are also not to use guns until 11th September and that goes on until the end of November. I can only assume they are hunting for rabbits, which are very scarce, we never see any on our walks. 10 years ago they were in abundance here, but not now. If I get more information I will post on here.

Cheers Freda
