The go-to Southern Tenerife and La Gomera travel guide for discovering the best walks and car tours.Â Â Strap on your boots and discover La Gomera and Southern Tenerife on foot with the Sunflower Southern Tenerife and La Gomera travel guide. And on the days when your feet may have had enough, enjoy some spectacular scenery on one of our legendary car tours.Â The Sunflower Southern Tenerife and La Gomera guide is indispensable for hiking and seeing the islands by car. This book is for those staying on La Gomera or in the south of Tenerife within easy reach of the Gomera ferry. Since the two islands are just a 35-minute ferry ride apart, the book covers walks and tours on both. There are car tours with picnic suggestions ranging all over both islands, with pull-out touring maps and plans for the larger conurbations.
Walks are described throughout the whole of La Gomera, while for Tenerife there are walks in the south and west. All walks are illustrated with newly drawn 1:50,000 topo maps based on OpenStreet mapping. GPS tracks are available for all the walks, and there are satnav coordinates to the starting points. All â€˜officialâ€™ signposted and waymarked government trails have been highlighted and numbered on the walking maps â€“ a real plus: if a walker comes across a signpost for a route not fully described in Noelâ€™s text, it can still be used as a short- (or long-!)cut. (Note: those going to Tenerife for a long walking holiday, who will be based in the south, should ideally have this book and Landscapes of Tenerife.)Area covered: The book is divided into two parts. The major emphasis is on exploring the whole of La Gomera by car or on foot. But the Tenerife section of the book is also packed with suggestions: there are tours (from Playa de las AmÃ©ricas/Los Cristianos) covering the whole of Tenerife by car, as well as the best walking in Tenerifeâ€™s south and west.
