The island resumes its life, continuing to offer hundreds of experiences, although this has never stopped in most of the territory. However, certain access remains limited to the places closest to the area affected by the disaster. Mistertravel.news told you about the fires in August.

Tenerife remains a preferred destination

…for lovers of nature and outdoor activities, including the Macizo de Anaga biosphere reserve, where you can admire unique landscapes, and a complete network of protected natural spaces open to all those who wish come and discover them.

Only one area of ​​Teide National Park is still affected

It is now possible to access the park from the south up to the cable car and take advantage of the many trails that surround it. On the other hand, access remains closed through La Esperanza, La Orotava and La Subida a Los Loros, as well as a series of trails that have been closed to avoid risks. Coastal activities continue without restriction.

Major cities continued to operate normally

…both in the metropolitan area (which includes the two main towns of Santa Cruz and La Laguna) and in Arona or Adeje, passing through Santiago del Teide, Guía de Isora, San Miguel de Abona and Puerto de la Cruz.

Those who have visited the island in recent days have noticed that Tenerife is a safe destination and were able to take advantage of its different attractions; a destination which has once again demonstrated its resistance and its ability to manage complex situations.

The remarkable work of the firefighters made it possible to avoid any casualties and the material damage caused did not affect the homes of people living in the disaster areas.

This work, combined with the regenerative capacity of native species, such as the Canary Island pine, will also allow some of the affected areas to benefit from optimal recovery, as has been the case for other forest fires recorded on the ‘island.

Public authorities are in the process of developing actions

…necessary to undertake the recovery phase in accordance with the island’s sustainability and environmental protection policies.

In order to obtain further information, the network of tourist information centers on the island has set up a telephone assistance service for visitors, in Spanish and English (+34) 922 255 433.
