  1. Hi there, I just received your walk this way Tenerife on Amazon and I really like it and prefer it to the cicerone guides. Do you perchance have one for gran canaria as I will be traveling there also in November.

    • Hi Jonathan, many thanks for your very kind comments about the book. We had planned to continue the series for the other islands, but it didn’t work out. This was mainly because we were commissioned by UK specialist walking company Inntravel to create Slow Travel/walking guides for the other Canary Islands for them. The hiking on Gran Canaria is excellent, so I hope you find a guidebook which shows you the best routes.
