About this book

The guidebook describes 45 day walks across eight areas of Gran Canaria, including Las Palmas in the north to Playa del Ingles in the south. Also included is a five-day coast-to-coast route on the GR131, an island-hopping long-distance trail stretching across all seven of the Canary Islands.

There are walks suitable for those of all abilities, ranging in landscape from coastal clifftops to the dramatic volcanic mountains inland. Walks venture through villages and towns, and up to the summits of the highest peaks on Gran Canaria. Each walk gives information on access (predominantly using the island's good bus services), details of places offering food and drink, and notes on the interesting features passed along the way. The book also provides lots of background information on geology, wildlife, plants and flowers as well as practical information on accommodation, currency and language.

Gran Canaria is a hugely popular holiday destination but despite this it offers many peaceful locations for walkers to explore and some truly beautiful and striking scenery. This collection of walks showcases the island's remarkably varied landscapes – from arid semi-desert to moist laurisilva 'cloud forests' and rugged mountains and coast.
