Based on Puerto de la Cruz, this book features car tours all over the island and is the best choice for those staying in the north. The walks cover the Orotava Valley, Las Canadas, the Teno and Anaga peninsulas. (For walks in the south of Tenerife, see "Landscapes of Southern Tenerife and La Gomera"). This was the first walking guide for Tenerife, but in recent years the island has become the most popular of all the Canaries amongst walkers, and for good reason. Tenerife has something for everyone - country lanes for strolling, nature trails for hiking, and mountains to be scaled - including El Teide, the highest in all Spain. The profusion of wild plants and flowers makes the island a botanical treasure. 'Tenerife is one of the worlds most terrific locations for a walking holiday, and with this book you are sure to get the most of it. The book is well written, has nice pictures, and the descriptions of the walks are clear with lots of detail. Bus tables and route informations are included, so you will be in no doubt how to get to/from your desired walking locations. It even has rather good maps. Another plus: The publisher has an update service.
In addition the book has information about car tours and good picnic spots.' (A reader)
