Lanzarote, A Hiking Guide by Ignacio Romero

Ignacio Romero, better known as Nacho from Senderismo Lanzarote has just launched his second edition of his walking guide for Lanzarote, this time the book is available in Spanish, English and German editions.

A Hiking Guide Lanzarote

A Hiking Guide is literally hot off the press, we attended the book launch at Bodegas el Grifo last night, which was well attended. There are 21 walks detailed covering 200km across Lanzarote & La Graciosa. The Summary of Walks list gives a quick guide to find your next walk, there are 10 linear walks where some pre planning will be required with transport, the other 11 are circular walks. The shortest walk is 1.2km around the historic old capital of Teguise, the longest walk is coast to coast from Puerto del Carmen to La Santa covering 28km. 

Well attended presentation

There’s a lot of detail in this hand sized guide, 220 pages packed full of not just walking information, but points of interest, suggested places to eat and stay in the different municipalities of the island, flora and fauna to help identify wildlife and flowers whilst trekking, plus cultural and historical information.

Nacho spends his days exploring Lanzarote with groups of walkers, unlike other walking published books produced by non resident of the island, this guide is written by someone who is constantly exploring our volcanic landscape. We’ve been out on walks with Nacho, they are guided in Spanish, and full of fascinating facts. If you think you’ve seen most of the hidden spots in Lanzarote, look up the Index of Places of Interest, there’s sure to be something to peak your curiosity.

Ignacio Romero Lanzarote walking guide presentation

Author Nacho has built up an incredible wealth of knowledge about Lanzarote through a desire to broaden his horizon of our volcanic rock in the Atlantic. He has spent years talking to our Conejeros and scouring the archives to discover more about the history of the paths he treads. 

We think this book is a valuable addition to any walkers library, planning a visit to Lanzarote. Each walk has a route description, map, route profile, details of how to get there, any points of interest, links to other walks, what to visit in the area plus beautiful photos of Lanzarote.
