Walking on Tenerife (Paperback)
The latest in Paddy Dillon's series of guides to the Canary Islands, this guide covers all the best walking to be had on this hugely popular island, including routes along the GR131. With distance and difficulty ranging from short and easy to long and arduous there is suitable challenge for walkers of all abilities here, on 45 routes that highlight Tenerife's beautiful landscape.
With the high-altitude Parque Nacional del Teide and lush laurisilva forests of Anaga, Tenerife has excellent natural scenery all over the island. The highest mountain on Spanish territory, El Teide, is also located here. The routes are marked by a network of new signposts. Shorter routes can be linked together, with further traditional routes linking mountain villages. The book also includes details of the island's bus services and local facilities to help readers enjoy walking on the island to the full.
