"Walk! La Gomera" is dedicated to Walking with a capital W. Our 1st edition, nominated Best Guide Book by The Sunday Times, was proving so popular that we were in danger of selling out before we could have an all new 2nd edition available. La Gomera is our favourite island but our commitments to new Tenerife and Madeira books and maps meant we had to hand our dream island to Charles Davis; see his 34 Alpujarras Walks. What a stunning research programme he has produced, certainly "No Compromise" on La Gomera.
Charles, accompanied by Jeanette and Bati, have hiked this beautiful destination if not into submission then at least to a draw. Included are La Gomera's classic routes but Charles has also added some previously unknown, or at least unpublished routes that will become Gomeran classics: see his new descent into Hermigua and the massive Barranco del Erque. There are some easy routes, some energetic routes, and some simply awesome routes; all accurately described in Charles inspirational walk descriptions.
Many routes from our first edition feature in the new book, but perhaps not as you might expect: Stairway to the Falls as an ascent, Wow Spectacular as part of a circular route taking in the amazing ascent to Imada. Nothing has been left to chance as our trio hike these impressive landscapes, their GPS records forming a major input to producing the new 3rd edition map of the island. You can even use the Garajonay Express fast catamaran as part of your walking exploration; special emphasis has been placed on the accessibility of walking routes for both drivers and bus users.
