La Gomera and Tenerife

Grade: Moderate

Explore two islands in one trip with this Canary Islands walking tour to La Gomera and Tenerife. Glistening sunlight breaks through swirling puffs of mist in the ancient laurissilva cloud forests of Garajonay National Park, and a trek to the lunar foothills of El Teide volcano will reveal far-reaching views over vast rocky plains and rugged canyons. Feel the warm sunshine on your back as you descend into the cliff-top village of Agulo and stop to relax in an alfresco cafe overlooking the ocean after a fun day of exploring by foot.

Gran Canaria

Grade: Moderate

Hike amongst ancient lava fields, dormant volcanoes and the historic 'Caminos Reales' trails on the island of Gran Canaria. Set off on foot to escape busy tourist beaches and explore the island's desolate and mountainous interior on this moderately graded small group walking trip. Trek to Roque Nublo, the island's centre point, to take in panoramic views over jagged peaks and azure-blue seas. And head to Acusa to uncover white-washed Stone Age cave dwellings set into the sheer rockface. End the day with a feast of delicious grilled meats and sip on a glass of chilled sangria as you watch the sun dip behind soaring peaks of Mount Teide.

Lanzarote

Grade: Easy to moderate

The island of Lanzarote offers a vast array of landscapes to explore on foot. Trek along the lunar trails of Timanfaya National Park with its earthy red volcanic cones rising up from fields of black basalt rocks, and stand at the edge of the steep Famara Cliffs to gaze over the fizzing El Rio waters separating you from the neighbouring island of La Graciosa. Soothe tired legs with a swim in crystal clear turquoise seas and walk barefoot on black sand beaches before enjoying sundowners from a traditional waterfront taverna on this easy to moderate Canary Islands walking tour.

La Palma

Grade: Moderate

Trek through verdant laurisilva cloud forest and hike along mountain ridges on the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve of La Palma in the Canary Islands. Well-marked trails lead us through dense foliage and past milky-white waterfalls in Los Tilos. And a walk to the summit of Bejenado Peak reveals vast views of the leafy Caldera de Taburiente set amongst towering volcanoes. Take a day off to explore the wild rocky shorelines of the west coast and rest tired legs on the local black sand beaches.
