Original post 11 January: Santiago del Teide Ayuntamiento’s annual Almendros en Flor is always one of the most popular Almond Blossom Route campaigns in Tenerife, and it’s now in its 22nd year. These walks are always hugely popular because they’re through a stunning environment in the hills when the almond blossom is blooming, surrounded by beauty with an unbelievable scent filling the air. The council says that 2019’s Rutas will offer, as always, a range of walks and activities, and be organized in collaboration with various council departments and the Cabildo itself: as always, walkers are advised to wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and to bring water, sun protection, and a walking stick or pole. The programme will be unveiled shortly, so for anyone waiting to know when and where it’s going to be happening this year, you won’t have to wait much longer.


  1. In the application form to register DNI is required. Does it mean that this is an event only for Spanish residents? Or can I use for example my passport number instead? Thanks

    It means NIE for foreigners, it’s not restricted to Spanish, nor even residents, only. For visitors without a NIE, I would try with the passport number.

  3. Thank you!

  4. Hi do you know if the routes are circular and if you can take dogs?

  5. Author

    The routes are not circular, they go from the stated starting points to Arguayo. Whether one can take dogs, I don’t know, I’m sorry, you will need to clarify with the council on the phone number they provided.

  6. Hi Janet. I have been trying to find out whether we can go on our own (not guided) mid week. Their guided walks are only on weekends and we can’t go then. Any idea? Thanks.

  7. Author

    yes, you can go on your own any time.

  8. Thank you so much!

  9. Can u please send a route to go by my own?!

    The best thing might be to get to Santiago del Teide town itself and then just look around because there are plenty of official signs up showing all the walks.
