Walking releases something in you
Walking has a special effect on the brain. It calms your brain and neutralizes stress because walking uses those parts of the brain that produce stress hormones. Because of walking they are no longer able to do this. The outside air makes your brain function better. By walking in nature for a few days improve your intellectual capacity up to 50%. That is why often when walking the best ideas come to mind. And then it also influences your mood enormously positively.
6 inspiring walks
We walk on the edge of the largest volcano crater on the island. Bare rocks and volcanic grit alternate with greenery. On one side of the path a view of the crater and on the other side of the sea or the mountains. Then we visit the sacred mountain Humiaga and we discover imposing fortress that the original inhabitants built here.
The main challenge of the retreat is climbing the highest mountain on the island, Pico de las Nieves. Our hike starts in the village of Santa Lucia de Tirajana and ascends via steep winding mountain paths. Bare mountain slopes with impressive views alternate with sporadic forests. I can assure you from my own experience that you will reach a euphoric peak at the top. And the view doesn't make it any less.
During this easy but no less impressive hike we explore the Barranco de los Cercícalos, the canyon of the kestrels. In an apparently deserted valley, water flows all year round, which is special on this island where it didn't really rain for 2 years. Through a jungle of olive trees, willows, impressive holm oaks and bamboo we follow the water through the valley and discover several waterfalls.
The walk takes you along country roads to the rock fortress of La Fortaleza, where the original inhabitants of the island were defeated by the Spanish in 1483. We visit the cave in this impressive rock formation where the primeval inhabitants stayed. The abundance of palm trees on the way back is a reminder of the once abundant water in the valley. We follow the dry riverbed and discover the hip community that resides here.
The tour around the valley of Barranco del Juncal starts on a deserted asphalt road to a village with few visitors, then it descends to the depth of the valley and climbs steadily through a cooling pine forest. Then we reach desolate mountain ridges with views over the valley on one side and the reservoir on the other.
We visit the las Dunas de Maspalomas, a huge dune area on the southernmost tip of the island that leads its own life. The wind moves the dunes in a different direction every day. We walk through the loose sand of this area and climb several dunes. We cross a camel ranch and the dry river that once drained mountain water to the sea. On the way back our feet get cool as we follow the coastline back to Playa del Ingles.
relax on the luxurious finca oasis
Our home base is Finca Oasis near Telde. You have access to this your own place where you can retreat to let the day sink in. You can of course also relax the pool or on one of the terraces with views of the surrounding orchard and mountains. The large eat-in kitchen offers many possibilities for cooking and meals can be eaten together both inside and on the terrace. A place to feel at home for a week.
Photography to look differently
Everyone sees the world differently and experiences situations differently. That is because every person has his own perspective applies. You can easily learn through photography to look at the world in a different way. For example, by zooming in on the details, zooming out to the whole or opting for a completely different perspective. If you are aware of the different perspectives, you can use them to reach your goal more easily. Because if you look through the eyes of a different teaching, you know exactly what it sees and drives differently.
the delicious Spanish cuisine
During this week we cook together with a local chef which introduces you to Spanish cuisine. For example, you learn to prepare paella and Rancho Canario. And you get the recipes home, so that you can surprise family and friends with the most delicious Spanish dishes. We always eat a simple walking lunch on the way, because you don't want to have to carry too much. On Friday we go out for dinner after a week of brisk walking my favorite tapas restaurant in Maspalomas, Maná 264. There we are extensively pampered and we taste the most delicious dishes. Your taste buds will never be short of anything in Spain!
optimal result with1-on-1 coaching
During the walks, cooking and meals there is plenty of opportunity to talk, exchange ideas and learn from each other's experiences. But you achieve the optimal result with 1-on-1 coaching. Every day you will receive my exclusive attention for 30 minutes. In total, we will work on your development for about 3.5 hours. I am sure that you will return home as a different person.
after this week you have
a world of difference
Charged by the Spanish sun and maybe with some tired legs, you will leave Gran Canaria after a week. Inspired and motivated you return home with more overview than you ever had. You take life again full of confidence, bit with both hands. You are an unforgettable experience richer, made nice new contacts and you can prepare different Spanish recipes. But above all, you know that from now on walking gives you an overview and insight make decisions. And that only those decisions successful will be if you keep looking at the world with different eyes.
I am your guide
I regularly go into the mountains to get inspiration and find peace. To get away from the daily activities and the people around me. To regain clarity and overview. Every time I come home full of ideas.
After I got burned out I went for a brisk walk and that contributed enormously to my recovery. On a mountain ridge, I made the decision to start my own business and make hiking my job. This way you can see where a walk can lead to!
That experience, my training and my many years of experience as a manager at often complicated organizations with you into the mountains. To help you take the next step. Will you take the plunge and come along?
