Wandelgids La Palma
Favorite thing: Many walking guides are available for La Palma.
Since the island is subjected to continuous change and development, it is also good to buy a detailed map with the walking trails, indicated with the letters GR (long distance), PR (medium distance) and SL (local trails).
We mainly used the Dutch "ANWB Wandelgids La Palma", second printing 2005, originally written by Susanne Lipps. This guide mainly describes hikes with the same start and finish. This is very easy because you can park your car somewhere and get back to it. However, some of the walks in the second printing were not fully correct anymore due to changes in roads etc. Be warned, the first tunnel in walk #18 was closed with a gate when we were there in Januari 2008 (however, we went under the gate :-)
We also had the Sunflower La Palma and El Hierro guide by Noel Rochford. This guide describes mainly walks that go from one point to another (different start and finish) and therefore is very suitable for people that want to use public transport. This guide also uses a web-based update service to make sure you can always have the latest information about the hikes.
