The routes span a wide range of arid, agricultural and natural areas. Walks feature hill and mountain trails, Lanzarote's Timanfaya volcanic national park, coastal walks along Fuerteventura's golden beaches and ancient island villages. Routes are illustrated with the author's own clear, custom-drawn colour maps and inspirational photography. Full contact information is included for public transport and accommodation providers and tourist information offices as well as an extensive topographical glossary and route summary table to help you choose the best walk, or combine a couple of routes, according your requirements. Walking on Lanzarote and Fuerteventura is part of a five-volume series to the whole of the Canary Islands.

Its fate was decided some two and one-half centuries ago, when the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history took place, leaving a strange and alluring countryside in its wake a landscape littered with volcanoes and dark streams of jagged lava. This is the backdrop to nearly every scene on the island, and intriguing sights abound none more so than the 'Fire Mountains'. As for walking, the island caters beautifully for strollers but even hill-walkers will find a challenge or two amidst the stunningly beautiful landscapes. Great care has been taken with the walk details from printing the numbers of all 'official' waymarked trails existing at press date right down to naming local bus stops. But if walking is not your favourite pastime, then do explore Lanzarote by car. And while you're at it, why not hop over to Fuerteventura for a day? It's just 15 minutes away by fast ferry. The book includes a day out on that island, with a car tour covering the northern half. (There is also a walk on the tiny island of Lobos, which can be reached from either Lanzarote or Fuerteventura.) The best months for walking on Lanzarote are from November to March, but some of the walks can be done all year round.
