Rother Walking Guide 2022. Engelsk text.
Gran Canaria is not only an excellent beach and sun paradise, it is also one of the most diverse hiking islands in the Canary Archipelago. The island is like a miniature continent: shimmering dune fields contrast with subtropical valleys, rocky gorges with green palm oases. The Roth hiking guide "Gran Canaria" presents 72 varied tour suggestions: from leisurely hikes to bathing beaches to adventurous paths to spectacularly situated cave villages to atmospheric ridge paths with a wonderful panorama.
The hikes are - like nature - very varied. There are many ways in which you will hardly meet anyone. The hikes lead on over 500-year-old connecting paths, the Camino Reales, to remote mountain villages or run along the coasts. In the center of the island, jagged mountain ridges and bizarre rock monoliths rise to almost 2000 meters.
Each hiking suggestion offers a reliable tour description, a hiking map with the course of the route entered and a meaningful elevation profile. In a clear brief information, bus connections, places to stop for refreshments and overnight stays, requirements, height differences and much more are given. GPS data are available for download. Numerous photos whet the appetite for excursions into the varied mountain world.
