This new 8th edition of our guidebook to walking in La Gomera and Southern Tenerife has been carefully revised on the ground just a few months prior to publication.
The number of hikes has been increased by 30%, and all the maps have been redrawn using OpenStreetMap source material with GPS tracking. The printed maps show waypoints, and free downloadable GPS tracks are available for all the treks.
Colour coding on the Contents page enables you to see at a glance the grading of various walks.
This book is for those staying on La Gomera or in the south of Tenerife (within easy reach of the Gomera ferry). Since the two islands are just a 35-minute ferry ride apart, the book covers 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 conurbations.
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 our Landscapes of Tenerife book.
