The Walking in the Canaries tour starts in San Cristóbal De La Laguna and ends in San Sebastian, Teneriffe. The Walking in the Canaries is a walking tour that takes 15 days taking you from San Cristóbal De La Laguna to San Sebastian, Teneriffe and through other destinations in Spain.

Year round walking opportunities exploring the mountains and coasts of Spain's most exotic islands. The exotic Spanish islands of Gomera and Tenerife are a year round walking destination. In Tenerife, the highest island in the Atlantic, you'll explore Mount Teide the third tallest volcano in the world. From the ancient university town of La Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the elegant resort of Puerto de la Cruz on the north coast, this self guided walk offers varied walks through the island's tiny villages, black sandy beaches and dry cactus strewn valleys. Travelling on to the volcanic island of Gomera you'll experience more dramatic scenery with its mountainous terrain unlike anywhere else in Europe. You will be walking virtually round the island, experiencing a variety of landscapes from rocky to cultivated terraces and banana plantations and into the rare laurisilva cloud forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So rugged is the island that pre telephones, Gomerans developed a language of whistling to communicate from valley to valley.

“We really enjoyed our Lake Como Rambling trip. Accommodation and food were excellent and maps and directions for walks were very helpful. It was great being offered a couple of options for walks on most days and Lake Como was such a beautiful destination you could have enjoyed it just sitting by the lake eating gelato or drinking coffee.”
