The Suomi girl and 1st ever long walker Sanna Nevalainen brings a touch of Finnish Sisu to The Ninth year of The Long Walk!

Sanna Nevalainen works hardest to support The Long Walk, and has done since it began in 2012, she is now Secretary of the Association which she helped create.

A great choice not only for her good looks and tenacious manner, Sanna is also one of the original founding members of The Long Walk, having been one of the first to go the distance, on the very first walk from Puerto Rico to Roque Nublo back in 2012.

Since then she has worked tirelessly for the event, helping to ensure that it is properly organised and supported, either by herself walking or by driving support cars, looking after bookings, or simply ensuring that the more gung-ho among us do not starve!

The Long Walk – Gran Canaria aims to show that no matter the size of the challenge ahead of us, by working together, one step at a time, we can all cross mountains. #WeCrossMountains

We raise funds and awareness to assist families, groups and individuals on Gran Canaria facing potentially terminal illnesses, like Canarian Breast Cancer Association ACCM (Asociación Canaria de Cáncer de Mama y Ginecológico), environmental organisations helping to protect our island, such as Fundación FORESTA, and those dealing directly with poverty in our community, such as https://TheFoodProject.es Proyecto Vecinal de Alimentos de Mogán Nabohjelpen among others.

The Long Walk 2021 will start Day 1 by the famous Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse, and head north along The Pilgrims’ Way, the only officially recognised stretch of the Camino de Santiago (Ruta Jacobea) outside of mainland Europe. We will travel from the Dunes of Maspalomas, up through the Fataga valley to Tunte, where we will stay the night, and on Day 2 complete our ascent with a traditional toast at the highest summit on the island following a small detour from the trail, up to Pico de Las Nieves. Walking across Las Cumbres (The Summits) stopping another night at Cruz de Tejeda. Day 3 will begin with a visit to The Long Walk Woodland Reserve, before our descent, through the northern mountain pine forests, into the ancient pre-hispanic island capital, the royal city of Gáldar, and end on the north coast around sunset.
