This guidebook describes 21 walks on Lanzarote, 2 on Isla La Graciosa (off Lanzarote's northern coast) and 22 on Fuerteventura, including 14 walks on the GR131 long distance trail, which traverses all seven of the Canary Islands (including Isla de Lobos at the tip of Fuerteventura). 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.
