The Canary Association of Active TourismActiva Canarias, reports this Monday that the Board of Trustees of the Teide National Park has decided to exempt duly registered Active Tourism companies from the prohibition of access in snowy conditions, so tourist excursions can be carried out on Teide when these conditions are met.
The regulatory body of the National Park thus attends to the letter presented by the business association in which they request this measure, they point out in a note.
They applaud the realization of tourist excursions in the Teide
To do this, this exclusion conditions the companies to be duly registered in the Active Tourism Registry of the Canary Islands and, specifically, they must be authorized to go hiking, mountaineering or ‘trekking’ on the island of Tenerife, which limits the number of participants to between 10 and 15 per guide, and that, in the case of access to the Telesforo Bravo trail, the companies have the corresponding permit granted to carry out tourist excursions on Teide.
The president of Activa Canarias, José Luis Echevarría, applauds the measure, which in his opinion “allows certified companies to continue working and providing services to tourists”.
Likewise, it is grateful that the Teide National Park has responded to the “repeated requests” of Activa Canarias.
