Just back from the island and did quite a bit of walking.

Around Betancuria is really green at the moment -definitely worth a trip.

A French tourist was recently rescued by helicopter and taken to the hospital in Puerto del Rosario after falling from the path on Pico de la Zarza and injuring their leg. :cry:

It goes without saying to be careful when heading out on walks, and to not only take food/snacks, water, suncream and suitable clothing but a small first aid kit in your pack too.

If you are heading out alone, let someone know where you are going.

Safe hiking :P

I hope that person was OK. Nothing worse than getting an injury when you're out walking, especially if you're alone. :cry:

I've been looking at walking down in the south on the Jandia Penninsula as it looks like theres some great walks there. The Gran Valle to Cofete for one, along with the coastline section of the GR131 from Costa Calma south, following Sotavento, Mal Nombre etc.... Is there a guide I can buy with information about the GR131, or a website or something that I can use to guide me, as I don't just like to the look of simply following the marks painted onto rocks etc.....

Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks :P
