WELCOME to my website..
..which is designed to encourage healthy active people to WALK and EXPLORE the magnificent mountains of Gran Canaria, Spain.
My name is Roger - known as 'Rambling Roger'. My wife Eileen and I have lived on Gran Canaria for almost 20 years, and we have discovered many varied hikes for all abilities of walkers on this island.
We believe we have written the best English language guide book for walkers in Gran Canaria, but would be happy to offer free advice to anyone considering a hiking holiday on our beautiful island, whether it be just for themselves or a walking club etc. We can also recommend English speaking walking guides for you if required.
THE definitive Guide for hikers and explorers.. by Rambling Roger, resident in Gran Canaria
I have completed 2 guide books for walking and investigating the wonderful interior of 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 Guides are regularly updated and available in printed or PDF version ~
