Our walking holidays are available on six of the islands: Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro and Lanzarote. We also have a walk on La Graciosa accessible from Lanzarote. By visiting several of the islands you will be able to experience a great range of landscapes and enjoy stunning views. We will arrange accommodation, flights and transfers, provide walking notes and maps and if required organise walking guides.

Gran Canaria

An island of only 600 square miles but a continent in miniature Gran Canaria offers lush forests exotic fauna and flora Sahara-like dunes mountains volcanic craters and sometimes snow on the highest peaks. Two things make Gran Canaria distinct from the other Canarian Islands. Firstly the reservoirs that are abundant in the mountainous region nestling in the valleys giving important water supply to the inhabitants and a refreshing vista for the walker. Secondly there are the ancient settlements and fascinating troglodyte villages built by the deeply religious Guanche about 4000 years ago and many are still occupied!

Tenerife

Tenerife has become a mecca for enthusiastic walkers. Tenerife is an island of contrasts from the volcanic moonscapes of the Teide National Park to the high cliffs ridges and deep valleys of the coastal mountain ranges. The island boasts the highest mountain in Spain Teide at over 3660m. Due to its southern latitude its slopes can be walked for most of the year. All of this is well away from the crowded tourist resorts for which Tenerife is renowned.

La Palma

La Palma a lush mountainous island in the Western Canaries measuring the equivalent of just 24 miles square offers attractive opportunities for walkers. Its diversity of landscapes constantly change as you gain height or vary direction. There are forests of pine laurel and eucalyptus and meadows strewn with colourful wild flowers.Farming remains the bedrock of the economy with a wealth of almond groves tobacco fields banana plantations and vineyards. In contrast the island also features extensive evidence of volcanic activity with much to explore on foot including the enormous crater of the Caldera de Taburiente in the awe-inspiring and scientifically important National Park. The densely forested northern coast features magnificently rugged sea cliffs and spectacular gorges. You can enjoy exploring the picturesque small towns and villages dotted along the coast and inland.

La Gomera

La Gomera is just 35 minutes by fast ferry from Tenerife it remains beautifully unspoilt and is a walker’s delight. Measuring the equivalent of just 20 miles by 20 miles yet packed with a variety of walks it is a tiny friendly island with charming rural villages and a handful of small coastal towns.

El Hierro

El Hierro is the least known, and most westerly, of the Canary Islands. In fact it was the most westerly point of the ‘old world’. Hitherto it has escaped mass tourism, and is free of giant hotels and apartment complexes. The population is only 10,000, giving a very different feel to the other Canarian islands. The Herrenõs are fiercely proud of their island and although they are generally against mass tourism they are very welcoming towards visitors who come to appreciate the environment, such as walkers, naturalists and divers.

Lanzarote

Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands, located just 79 miles off the coast of Africa. As with the other Canary Islands it was formed through volcanic activity. After the eruptions of the 18th and 19th century, and due to the islands dry climate and lack of erosion, many parts of the island look like they come from another world with the lava flows appearing like they did soon after the eruptions.
