The ultimate Guide for hiking, exploring, and mountain walking whilst visiting the Canary Island
 of Gran Canaria, Spain

Gran Canaria is a paradise for hill walking in the Canaries, with inhabited cave villages, lake side walks, spectacular mountain scenery and wonderful flora & fauna especially in the Spring.  There is a great deal to explore and discover in the central mountains.  There are a great variety of hikes on outstanding trails, for all abilities of walker, many of these are off-the-beaten-track and the climate is excellent for trekking.

"Rambling Roger's your man.  In these days of instant gratification, it is rare to find anyone so devoted to a task, which for him has been a true labour of love.  He is Gran Canaria's Wainwright and deserves similar recognition"
Roger Vokes

 - Hello, I am Rambling Roger and I hope to welcome you to hike with me in Gran Canaria, Spain -
I do not believe that any other published guide in English can offer this personal service, if you know better please let me know...

I have been hiking with Roger for over a year now and enjoyed every single walk.  He knows Gran Canaria really well and goes out of his way to design the most fascinating hikes.  I especially appreciate the variety of his walks in terms of length and degree of difficulty.  He has something to offer for everybody

Guided Walks for Groups

My wife Eileen and I also guide walks for some local clubs and some English walking holiday companies, so please Contact Us if you require guided walks for a group of any size, as we understand why some people feel safer and more comfortable in a small group with a guide rather than hiking alone.

Gran Canaria is a safe place to trek, but you naturally pick up much more local information etc. especially with a resident English guide.  We would be happy to offer 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.
