Walking holidays in the Canary IslandsAfter our all-too-brief exploration of Gran Canaria, we headed to La Palma, fondly referred to as La Isla Bonita, ‘the pretty island’ – and it soon becomes apparent why. The steep slopes are covered in swathes of lush green trees amongst which small, colourful hamlets stare out over the deep blue ocean.
