Walking in La Gomera

£10.00

Landscapes of LA GOMERA and SOUTHERN TENERIFE: walks and car tours

by Noel Rochford

We bought the book and used it to guide us as to where we should base ourselves on each island. I will do the same again when planning our next trip. All the book’s walks we did went very smoothly thanks to the excellent instructions, and accurate maps. On first glance, the maps in the books may look simple and lacking in detail, but what you find when using them is that … they actually have just the detail you need. By contrast we also took another guide to walking on La Gomera with us, and tried its walks on 2/3 occasions. Each time was a bit of a disaster thanks to misleading instructions and maps that ‘looked’ detailed, but actually didn’t tell you what you really needed to know. We quickly decided that for walking, Sunflower is the only way to go. (RN, Amazon)

I am the happy owner of 5 Sunflower guides, but this is my favourite. (Mark, Amazon)

Description

South Tenerife La GomeraThis book is for those staying on La Gomera or in the south of Tenerife. Since the two islands are just a 35-minute ferry ride apart, this guide offers walks and tours on both. There are car tours (with picnic suggestions) ranging all over both islands, with pull-out touring maps and plans for the larger connurbations. Walks are described throughout the length and breadth of La Gomera, while for Tenerife there are walks in the south, within easy reach of the ferry. All walks are illustrated with 1:50,000 topo maps and all were rewalked  six months prior to publication of this new edition. All ‘official’ signposted and waymarked government trails have been highlighted and numbered on the walking maps – a real plus: if a walker comes across a signpost for a route not fully described in Noel’s text, it can still be used as a short- (or long-!)cut. (Note: those going to Tenerife for a long walking holiday, who will be based in the south, should ideally have this book and Landscapes of Tenerife.)

Area covered: The book is divided into two parts. The major emphasis is on exploring the whole of La Gomera by car or on foot. But the Tenerife section of the book is also packed with suggestions: there are tours (from Playa de las Américas/Los Cristianos) covering the whole of Tenerife by car, as well as the best walking in Tenerife’s south.

The best months for walking on La Gomera and Tenerife are October to June.

Southern Tenerife

Motorways: The TF1 has been extended as far as Santiago del Teide. However, it is a divided motorway only as far as 8km north of Adeje. From there to Santiago it is a three lane road: two lanes north and one south. We found it potentially dangerous driving: there are no passing places in the southbound lane, so if a slow driver is leading a long queue, impatient drivers behind may be tempted to cross the solid line and drive into oncoming northbound traffic… The TF5 has been opened to ‘highway’ standard between El Tanque and Icod de los Vinos.

WALKS

I visited Southern Tenerife in February. We stayed near the airport where there are now more tourist developments. So could you include more walks in the south of Tenerife, especially off the north easterly road to the capital, Santa Cruz? (User, 2/17)

Walk 3 The phone number to book Barranco del Infierno was unobtainable. We booked through the website instead and paid with a credit card. The cost is now 8 Euros each. (User, 2/17)

Walk 4 is now a PR walk and way marked yellow/white (PR TF 71.2). (Sunflower, 1/16) + Short walk After 100metres of the walk we found no signpost to Adeje, faded or otherwise. Suggest you say to turn left off the track, to make it clearer, as the track and the path look very similar at this point. Yellow and white flashes in use instead of the green and white flashes and dots. (User, 2/17)

Walk 5. Page 57, first sentence: we totally missed the left turn off, but we found the correct turn off on our return  from a wild goose chase. Could you say that the turn off is more accurately 10-20 metres before the right hand curve. We found the boulder but there are no yellow dots anywhere on it. (User, 2/17)
