About this book

This book offers 21 walks on Lanzarote, including walks exploring the volcanic national park, two on Isla La Graciosa (off Lanzarote’s northern coast) and 22 on Fuerteventura, including 14 walks on the GR 131 trail, which crosses both islands.

Both popular holiday destinations, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are two remarkably different islands. Lanzarote has a fascinating volcanic national park at Timanfaya, and vineyards fill huge areas of black volcanic ash at La Geria; Fuerteventura is famous for extensive golden beaches, but its splendid mountain paths are less well-known. Both islands are crossed by new waymarked trails.

These traditional routes span a range of arid, agricultural and natural areas, including hill and mountain trails, coastal walks including Fuerteventura’s golden beaches, and some walks visit villages along the way.
