This book is ideal for countryside-lovers staying either in the south of Tenerife or on the neighbouring island of La Gomera only 35 minutes away by hydrofoil. Hydrofoil schedules allow you enough time to get between the islands for a day's car touring or walking. This book is divided into two parts. The Southern Tenerife section has car tours covering the whole of Tenerife, using Playa de las Americas/Los Cristianos as a base. It also describes several spectacular walks including the famous routes in the Barranco de Masca and the Paisaje Lunar 'moon landscape'.The Gomera section describes tours and walks all over the island which, incidentally, is the author's favourite of all the Canaries. Gomera is still unspoilt, and its mountainous terrain affords some really challenging walking, although there are ample gentler, downhill routes. A unique on-line update service keeps users abreast of any route changes since publication of the book. "The Landscapes Series" with over 50 destinations has been dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the "Sunday Times".
