ACTIVITY SELECTED: COASTAL ROUTE FROM EL GOLFO (GUIDED IN ENGLISH)

Description of the activity

Along the only coastal path located within a National Park in the Canary Islands, the visitor can witness how life was able to blossom again after hot lava destroyed it during the XVIII and XIX century. As a consequence of this eruptive period and after lava came in contact with seawater, a smaller and uneven new coastline was formed, and this is where the Route unfolds.

Attending to last Instructions about Contingency Plan to reduce the risk against the SARS-COV-2 in the Timanfaya National Park, we would like to inform you about the visiting conditions:

 

During the transportation of visitors in the official vehicles of the Park, to the beginning of the route, the use of recommended masks is mandatory. Hydroalcoholic gel will be offered to visitors for hands hygiene before entering in the vehicle. Always following established rules and preventing unnecessary objects from being touched. A remote temperature test will be performed on each participant.

Some disinfectant liquid will be carried on vehicles to be applied to the soles of visitors shoes before entering into the Park vehicles.

During the route, recommended masks will be used. As long as the interpersonal distance can be maintained the use of a mask is not mandatory during the walking tour. Walking along the path it is emphasized that visitors respect the rules of interpersonal distance (1.5 meters).

Visitors will be prevented from touching any interpretive material (posters, signs... ) as well as natural materials (stones, plants or animals).

We wish you a pleasant visit and welcome you to Timanfaya National Park.
