Given their benevolent year-round climate, walking in the Canary Islands is ideal if you are looking to escape the grey British winter. But there is more to the islands than their plentiful sunshine – they are real paradises for walkers. Each one has its own allure. On La Palma it is the contrast between volcanic landscapes and lush forests; on Tenerife the constant, glowering presence of El Teide; on El Hierro the chance to explore off the beaten track; on Lanzarote the colours in the scenery; on Gran Canaria the extraordinary diversity of the scenery; and on La Gomera the feeling of discovering a well-kept secret. Whichever you choose, you will find walking in the Canaries a real treat for the senses.
While walking in the Canaries, you progress at your own pace guided by our detailed notes. As with all our other walking holidays, these destinations have been meticulously researched and your luggage is transported where necessary, so you travel light while walking in the Canary Islands – all you need to take with you are drinks, sun cream, a picnic and a camera.
