About this book

The Canary Islands have long been known as holiday destinations, but less well known is that they also boast an array of varied landscapes including mountain treks, rugged cliff coasts and dense forests. Although they are two of the smallest islands in the archipelago, La Gomera and El Hierro both feature a number of walks to suit a wide range of abilities. The former's rocky exterior surrounds a gentle higher terrain; the latter is home to striking volcanic slopes and pine forests.

Featuring 27 walks on La Gomera and 18 on El Hierro, this guide covers routes of all types, from easy strolls to long-distance trails. It includes the Garajonay National Park on La Gomera and the World Biosphere Reserve of El Hierro. It contains practical information including how to get there and when to go.
