Overview

Walk This Way features the best of Tenerife's walking routes written by travel writers who specialise in Tenerife and the Canary Islands. Some are well trodden favourites, others are strangers to the walking groups; lovely trails that were once the lifeline between communities and are now only used by neighbours and by cats on their morning constitutionals.

The book includes:

Concise and accurate directions, distances and timings for more than 30 of Tenerife's best walking routes from around the island.

Grouped by geographical area, advice is given on weather conditions, types of terrain, what flora and landscapes to expect and even where to answer a call of nature in each location.

Routes cover distances that vary from 1km to 17.5km with walking times varying from 1hr to 6hrs 20mins and from easy strolling to trails recommended for fit and experienced hikers only.

Comprehensive information on how to get to the start of routes by car and by public transport; points of interest, where to find refreshments and where to stay for easy access to routes.

Appendices give quick reference guides to routes by a variety of criteria including length, location, time taken, terrain, family-friendly etc.

And much, much more...
