Walking on Gran Canaria: 45 day walks including the GR131

Front Cover
Cicerone Press, Oct 17, 2013 - Sports & Recreation - 240 pages
The guidebook describes 45 day walks across eight areas of Gran Canaria, including Las Palmas in the north to Playa del Ingles in the south. Also included is a five-day coast-to-coast route on the GR131, an island-hopping long-distance trail stretching across all seven of the Canary Islands. There are walks suitable for those of all abilities, ranging in landscape from coastal clifftops to the dramatic volcanic mountains inland. Walks venture through villages and towns, and up to the summits of the highest peaks on Gran Canaria. Each walk gives information on access (predominantly using the island's good bus services), details of places offering food and drink, and notes on the interesting features passed along the way. The book also provides lots of background information on geology, wildlife, plants and flowers as well as practical information on accommodation, currency and language.
