This guide is designed for those staying either on La Gomera or in the south of Tenerife. Since the two islands are just a 35-minute ferry ride apart, the book offers walks and tours on both.
The book is divided into two parts. The major emphasis is on exploring the whole of La Gomera by car or on foot. But the Tenerife section of the book is also packed with suggestions: there are drives (from Playa de las Américas/Los Cristianos) covering the whole of Tenerife, as well as the best walks in the south, within easy reach of the ferry.
All walks are illustrated with 1:50,000 topo maps and all were rewalked only six months prior to publication of this new edition. All “official” signposted and waymarked government trails have been highlighted and numbered on the walking maps—a real plus: if a walker comes across a signpost for a route not fully described in Noel's text, it can still be used as a short- (or long-!) cut.
Note: those going to Tenerife for a long walking holiday, who will be based in the south, should ideally have this book and Landscapes of Tenerife.)
For La Gomera: 2 car tours (with accompanying touring map), 50 long and short walks (each with 1:50,000 topo map), 18 picnic suggestions.
