With more than a decade of accumulated knowledge and thousands of footsore kilometres behind them, Guild member Andrea Montgomery and her husband Jack have just published their latest guide to their adopted home. Walk This Way Tenerife showcases an aspect of the island rarely seen by the millions of holiday makers who annually flock to its shores to soak up the winter sunshine. With Spain’s highest peak at its heart, rain forests that pre-date the Ice Age, and deep ravines hewn into mountains where communities still live in caves, Tenerife offers some of the most diverse and dramatic walking in the Canary Islands.
Taking in Tenerife’s best loved walking trails as well as those known only to local cats on their morning constitutionals, clear and detailed directions are given for over 30 routes across the island, from gentle coastal strolls to challenging mountain hikes. As well as essential advice on what to wear, what weather conditions you’re likely to encounter, public transport to the start of routes, driving and parking directions and where to unlace the boots over a well deserved glass of something when you finish; you’ll find easy look-up tables identifying routes by distance, location, difficulty and those that are family friendly or best avoided by those who don’t have a head for heights. In short, it’s everything you need to know about self-guided walking on Tenerife.
So lace up the boots and Walk This Way to a Tenerife taht may come as a surprise to you.
