About this title

Synopsis:

New revised and updated 3rd edition of Walk! La Palma including latest Tour & Trail Mapping plus. Walk! La Palma includes 37 fully detailed walking route itineraries. Each walking route itinerary includes:- - walking route summary - ratings for Effort, Time, Distance, Ascents/Descents, Refreshments and Vertigo risk - fully detailed walk description, including frequent timings to aid navigation and check your progress - GPS Waypoints at every key point on every route where there is good gps reception - full colour 1:40,000 scale map of the route - short walk and stroll alternatives There are some easy routes. There are some challenging routes for fit experts. With author/researchers Charles Davis' and Jan Kostura's excellent walk descriptions you'll know which routes are for you - and all of them are a true adventure. The steepest island in the world, the deepest crater, the clearest skies: volcanoes you can climb without being shot into orbit; a subtropical forest minus the slimy things slinking up your trouser leg; black beaches, blue seas, high mountains, vegetation that is literally flamboyant, everything linked by 1080 kilometres of waymarked paths; and all virtually untouched by tourism. If this sounds divine or like some lost paradise, you're not the first to think so, previous commentators have identified La Palma as the prototype for both the Elysian Fields and Atlantis! The fanciful stuff aside, the island is a walker's idyll, utterly tranquil, verdant and almost unspoiled. GPS Waypoint files (in gpx file format) for Walk! La Palma are available as a free zip file download on Discovery Walking Guides website. Synopsis 37 detailed walking route itineraries. Each route includes:- walking route summary; ratings for Effort, Time, Distance, Ascents/Descents, Refreshments and Vertigo risk; and more. It also provides background information along with details of accommodation, buses, official walking routes, mountain biking, museums, and information offices. Walk!

About the Author:

CHARLES DAVIS After twenty years travelling the world pretending to be a teacher, Charles Davis concluded that wandering about mountain tops was a more productive way of spending his time than standing in front of a classroom, a decision that has lead to over a dozen books for Discovery Walking Guides.He is also the author of several novels, published by The Permanent Press. He is accompanied in his peregrinations by Jeannette (a refugee from the French education system) and assorted dogs that other people saw fit to dump in the local Rescue Centre, often for very good reasons.JAN KOSTURA After university, Jan Kostura set off on his travels, living and working in various far-flung places inspired by his passion for stimulating multicultural environments. However, being a stressed out desk-jockey in a hectic consulting business turned out not to be his thing, so after two years slouching in a chair he swapped the office for a more liberating environment the great outdoors.
