Rambling Roger is a most comprehensive website for walking and hiking in Gran Canaria. Roger and his wife Eileen have hiked all over the island. Although they do not offer guided walking tours,they are in the best position to offer advice to any visitor to Gran Canaria who wants to explore the beauty of the island on foot.
There are a couple of free guides to download from their website. Also they have written 2 comprehensive guides for hikers that are updated on a regular basis. These guides took over 10 years to complete initially. One is a book of half day hikes, with lots of local information and a guide for the more serious hiker with full day walks. These can be purchase/ordered from their site again in PDF format.
Their website is a wonderful resource in finding the best places to hike and walk. It provides information on transport, weather, environment, safety tips, equipment needed, and has a gallery of photographs with location information.
They have also worked with Discovery Walking Guides in the UK to produce probably the best map available for hikers on the island. The Discovery Walking Guides “Tour and Trail” map of Gran Canaria, is available from many outlets around Gran Canaria. The list of outlets is on the maps and terrain page of their web site.
