The two smallest of the Canary Islands are no less rugged than their volcanic neighbours, offering a wide variety of little-known walking terrain that includes steep-sided barrancos and dramatic cliffs as well as gentler slopes inland cloaked in laurasilva and pine forests.
La Gomera and El Hierro come with their own introduction and the walks are spread roughly clockwise around them. Where the routes lie side-by-side, links between them are often possible. Both islands feature coast-to-coast trails, while La Gomera also features a circular trail taking up to a week to complete. Any day-long stretch can naturally also be followed as a walk in its own right, using bus services to join and leave it.
Due to the volcanic history of the Canaries there is plenty of breathtaking scenery to be discovered by following these sensational routes that include easy strolls, hands-on scrambles, day walks and long distance routes covering the GR 131 and GR 132. This ensures that there is a trail for every one and every mood.
