Lanzarote’s Cabildo has announced that the Travesia A Nado Del Río – the hugely popular swimming contest between Lanzarote and la Graciosa – will go ahead this year.

It will be the first time that the event has taken place for four years. The 2019 edition was cancelled due to poor weather, and the Covid pandemic forced the suspension of the contest in 2020 and 2021.

Registration has still not opened for the contest, although first preference is likely to be given to swimmers who missed the 2019 event.  Anyone who wishes to participate in this unique challenge is advised to keep a close eye on the relevant webpage on the Cabildo’s website.
