Guided Walks

Guided Walks for Groups

My wife Eileen and I, used to guide walks before we became pensioners. We still walk the mountains regularly, but no longer lead walks. There are a few experienced walking guides who speak English, all of the following I consider to be good professional guides.

We specialise in writing easy to follow self-guided walks, and include a lot of local information, details of where to visit and what to do, signposts etc. Volume 1 (which includes half day walks etc.) is especially useful to have with you on a guided walk.

There are some clubs and organisations that run guided walks on a regular basis.

Most town halls organise guided walks once per month, the tourist information offices should be able to provide you with more details.

From England there are companies that offer guided walks in Gran Canaria:

Don't Leave Gran Canaria Without Seeing It..

THE definitive Guide for hikers and explorers.. by Rambling Roger, resident in Gran Canaria

Volume 1: The Shorter Options
This guide is intended more for the casual hiker ( who wants a half day walk ) and visitors who want to discover the real heart of Gran Canaria by car or on foot.

Volume 2: The Longer Options
This second guide is for the serious hiker who wants a full day trek.

Volume 1 'The Shorter Options' Guide has approx. 20 circular and 15 routes from A to B with the local bus times included, there are also over 30 there-and-back walks, all of these walks are designed to be half day hikes.
This Guide also includes lots of information of what to see and do in the many rural villages and towns, with suggestions of where to enjoy local specialities.

Volume 2 'The Longer Options' Guide has approx. 20 circular and 5 routes from A to B with local bus times included, these walks are full day walks and are designed for the serious hiker. All walks have full GPS information included.
I am aware that there are already various hiking books in English about walking on Gran Canaria, but none are written by a local resident with years of experience of the hiking routes on this island.

Both Rambling Roger's Guides are regularly updated and available in printed or PDF version.
