This guidebook to 45 day walks and treks on Tenerife in the Canary islands explores the coast and mountains of Tenerife with walks ranging between 4 and 32km, with short, easy strolls suitable for walkers of all abilities, to long and challenging routes.

 

Detailed route descriptions are illustrated with the author's own clear contour mapping and colour photographs. This guide is one of a five-part series of guides to the walking on the Canary Islands.

 

Tenerife, as a popular winter sun destination, provides a fascinating and varied landscape for walkers to explore, including the Tenerife section of the long-distance GR131 which links all the Canaries.

 

The guide is split into seven sections - Anaga, Teno, Arona/Guía, Valle de la Orotava, Parque Nacional and El Teide - covering all the best walking to be had on the island, including the rugged 'Three Peaks of Tenerife' route, climbing Guajara, Pico Viejo and finally El Teide. Walks also explore the Parque Nacional del Teide, Las Cañadas, Corona Forestal, Teno and an ascent of El Teide itself, Spain's highest mountain.

 

Alongside the 45 routes in this guide, are essential practical details on travel to and around Tenerife, as well as advice on accommodation and preparation, as well as information on the history, geology and culture of the largest of the Canary Islands.

 

•Seasons - high summer is popular, but too hot for walking; good winter walking is possible, with a chance of snow on high mountains; spring is ideal and autumn is ok

•Centres - most people use resorts - from Playa de las Americas to Puerto de la Cruz - but there are quieter alternatives

•Difficulty - routes vary from short and easy to long and arduous; many paths are rough and stony, so good footwear is required; sun protection will be needed more than waterproofs, and plenty of water should be carried in some arid places; snow and ice sometimes lie on the mountains in winter

•Must See - El Teide, highest Spanish mountain, Parque Nacional del Teide, Las Cañadas, Corona Forestal, GR131 long-distance route, Anaga peninsula, Teno peninsula, volcanic cones, lava flows, volcanic ash slopes, scenery ranging from semi-desert to lush laurisilva forest and pine forest, all in one of the world's most popular holiday spots
