About this book

Walking guide to Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, describing 45 day walks and sections of the new, waymarked, long-distance trail GR131. The fourth in a comprehensive five-book series covering all the Canaries, it includes from Las Palmas in the north to the southern Playa del Ingles, with the stunning volcanic hill-country in between, all illustrated with detailed contour maps. The guide has walks suitable for those of all abilities, the dramatic landscape little known outside of the Canaries, but offering an ideal winter walking destination featuring rocky treks and mountain paths, clifftop and beachfront walks and forest trails through varied, breathtaking scenery. The guide provides lots of background information on geology, wildlife, plants and flowers as well as practical information on accommodation, currency and language.
