This new 7th edition of our guidebook to walking on Lanzarote has been completely redesigned in a wider format – with larger type and no mapping lost in the gutter. Free downloadable GPS tracks with waypoints are also available for all the hikes.
Colour coding on the contents page enables you to see at a glance the grading of various treks.
Fascinating Lanzarote is truly extraordinary. Its fate was decided some two and one-half centuries ago, when the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history took place, leaving a strange and alluring countryside in its wake — a landscape littered with volcanoes and dark streams of jagged lava. This is the backdrop to nearly every scene on the island, and intriguing sights abound – none more so than the ‘Fire Mountains’.
As for hiking in Lanzarote, there is no better place in the Canaries for just strolling, but trekkers will also be able to put part of the GR131 under their belts. Each of the walks in this book takes you to a different corner of the island and shows you a scenically different outlook.
But if walking is not your favourite pastime, then do explore Lanzarote by car.
What’s great about this book is that it gives loads of detailed and useful information [about] places off the beaten track that I’d never thought of visiting. (ML, Amazon)
I can’t imagine going to Lanzarote without this book. (NN, Amazon)
I thought I’d let you know just how valuable your book was on our recent trip to Lanzarote. Whilst other holidaymakers were going on the usual excursions, we went off the beaten track — following your picnic suggestions. I found your book very informative on all aspects and the maps were useful and accurate.(D&ET, West Hagley)
