Mallorca is not only a primary holiday destination for sun-lovers, but also a true hiking paradise, with lovely valleys, wild, romantic gorges and countless panoramic summits, all in the serene hinterland, tucked away from the seasonally overcrowded coasts. The "other" Mallorca surprises the visitor with a well-developed network of trails, and offers a variety of tours for all demands and levels of difficulty, starting from simple beach walks, to adventurous cliff tours and challenging mountain hikes, up to a spectacular canyon crossing. Rolf Goetz, the author of this Rother hiking guide, is one of the best experts on the Spanish Islands, and, through his various publications, has already made an excellent name for himself. He presents hikers with a wide variety of entertaining tour suggestions, mainly emphasising the wild, chasm-filled Serra de Tramuntana in the Northwest, but also including other island regions. This handy little hiking book, which opens up one of the most popular island hiking destinations in the Mediterranean area, has over 48 tour recommendations described in detail, generously illustrated by colour photos and colour map excerpts (scale 1:50,000) and 1:75,000). Thoroughly-researched introductory chapters with tips on interesting sights and a bus schedule complete this excellent guide, which no traveller should do without. Thus, this guide remains a reliable companion on all hikes on this diverse island.
La Gomera can be considered the wildest of the Canary Islands. From the central highlands of the almost 1500-metre high island, countless, steep-walled gorges wind down to the sea, slicing the otherwise gently sloping island coast like a cake. La Gomera is made for nature-loving walkers, and offers an incredible variety in its countryside: Idyllic valleys with terraced fields and palm groves stand in contrast to precipitous cliffs and spectacular gorges; the magical laurel forests of Garajonay National Park are countered by pine forests and banana plantations. Thus, the hiker can expect a pleasant stroll like no other, between blazing lava beaches, lush, misty primeval forests, ridges shrouded in clouds – and the ever-present, deep-blue Atlantic. This Rother Walking Guide presents the hiker with a wide variety of entertaining tour recommendations encompassing all regions of La Gomera. These walks range from comfortable paths through palm-studded valleys, to tranquil mountain strolls, to panoramic summit climbs – hiking trails through the dreamy, misty primeval forest are mentioned, as well as the partly paved caminos, which once represented the main connecting roads between villages. Many of the 66 tour recommendations are ideal for less experienced hikers. Yet experienced mountain hikers who are not afraid of power hikes and can handle a shot of adventure and risk will also find a rich selection of routes. This excellently researched guide is enhanced by outstanding colour photos and map excerpts based on the Freytag&Berndt hiking map of Gomera (scale 1:35,000), and is highly recommended to all mountain fans of the island. Walkers also interested in the neighbouring islands should check out the Rother Walking Guides on La Palma, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
Cyprus is not only famous for its cultural heritage and 9000 year old past – “Aphrodite‘s Island“ is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the eastern Mediterranean. The centre of the island is dominated by the Troodos mountain measuring some 2000 m in height, which despite its considerable altitude is more reminiscent of European low mountains, due to its softly rounded and forested peak. This Rother hiking guide proposes 50 routes mostly ranging from easy to medium level. Next to mountain tours, it also includes a selection of coastal paths along bizarre cliffs and adventurous ravine tours. Forest paths and nature trails lead through aromatic cedar woods, silent valleys and to remote Byzantine churches and monasteries. Classic spring tours are those which take visitors across the peninsula of Akamas, when colourful carpets of flowers and orchids blossoming by the wayside unveil their typical Mediterranean charm.
