This guidebook to 45 day walks and treks on Tenerife in the Canary islands explores the coast and mountains of Tenerife with walks ranging between 4 and 32km with short easy strolls suitable for walkers of all abilities to long and challenging routes.

Detailed route descriptions are illustrated with the author's own clear contour mapping and colour photographs. This guide is one of a five-part series of guides to the walking on the Canary Islands.

Tenerife as a popular winter sun destination provides a fascinating and varied landscape for walkers to explore including the Tenerife section of the long-distance GR131 which links all the Canaries.

The guide is split into seven sections - Anaga Teno Arona/Gu√≠a Valle de la Orotava Parque Nacional and El Teide - covering all the best walking to be had on the island including the rugged 'Three Peaks of Tenerife' route climbing Guajara Pico Viejo and finally El Teide. Walks also explore the Parque Nacional del Teide Las Ca√±adas Corona Forestal Teno and an ascent of El Teide itself Spain's highest mountain. 

Alongside the 45 routes in this guide are essential practical details on travel to and around Tenerife as well as advice on accommodation and preparation as well as information on the history geology and culture of the largest of the Canary Islands.

  • Seasons
    high summer is popular but too hot for walking; good winter walking is possible with a chance of snow on high mountains; spring is ideal and autumn is ok
  • Centres
    most people use resorts - from Playa de las Americas to Puerto de la Cruz - but there are quieter alternatives
  • Difficulty
    routes vary from short and easy to long and arduous; many paths are rough and stony so good footwear is required; sun protection will be needed more than waterproofs and plenty of water should be carried in some arid places; snow and ice sometimes lie on the mountains in winter
  • Must See
    El Teide highest Spanish mountain Parque Nacional del Teide Las Cañadas Corona Forestal GR131 long-distance route Anaga peninsula Teno peninsula volcanic cones lava flows volcanic ash slopes scenery ranging from semi-desert to lush laurisilva forest and pine forest all in one of the world's most popular holiday spots
