This new 10th edition of our guidebook to walking in Tenerife has been completely redesigned in a wider format – with larger type and no mapping lost in the gutter.
Revised on the ground annually, the guide also has new topo hiking maps with contours at 25m intervals. Based on OpenStreetMap mapping, the maps now 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 was the first ever guide for walking in Tenerife, but in recent years the island has become the most popular of all the Canaries among walkers. And for good reason.
Tenerife has something for everyone: country lanes for strolling, nature trails for hiking, and mountains to be scaled — including El Teide, the highest in all Spain.
The profusion of wild plants and flowers makes the island a botanical treasure.
The best guidebook is Landscapes of Tenerife, which shows another face of the island for walkers and picnickers, as well as those who tour Tenerife by car. (Sunday Times)
I found this book reliable and full of facts, which I expected. I’ve used other books in the series since I was a novice walker and found the walk descriptions generally sufficient. (JE, Amazon)
Invaluable historical, botanical and cultural background information… Many of the walkers we met (of various nationalities) also used the Sunflower guide, perhaps indicating that it is the most practical and definitive guide available. (MA, Amazon)
