About this book

Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, boasts walking routes of many types, all set in excellent natural scenery including the Parque Nacional del Teide, which is home to the highest mountain on Spanish territory, El Teide.

This guide is split into seven sections covering all the best walking to be had on the island: from easy strolls to hands-on scrambling; from simple day-walks to long-distance trails on the island-hopping GR131, which links all the Canaries.
