Landscapes of Jersey

Price: 7.99

Quantity:  


Jersey has a coastline with its share of steep paths and endless steps. Away from the coast, however, there is slightly more variety in the landscape, and walking is relaxed and easy, mainly along quiet lanes and country paths. Geoff Daniel has the happy knack of finding sights and places to stir the imagination ­ from the Pinnacle (one-time scene of pagan rituals) to the eerie towering concrete relics of the island's occupation by Germany during World War II.
As with the previous edition, this new 4th edition has been thoroughly checked and revised by Sue Hardy, a resident of Jersey. Sue leads groups of walkers throughout the year and devised the walk around St Lawrence incorporating the Millennium Path which was created in the year 2000. Whether you're a first-time or a regular visitor, you'll enjoy exploring places you might never come across without the aid of this guide.

Landscapes of Lanzarote

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


Few holidaymakers realise that Lanzarote has more to offer than just beaches and sunshine. This fascinating island is truly extraordinary. Its fate was decided some two and one-half centuries ago, when the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history took place, leaving a strange and alluring countryside in its wake ­ a landscape littered with volcanoes and dark streams of jagged lava. This is the backdrop to nearly every scene on the island, and intriguing sights abound ­ none more so than the 'Fire Mountains'

Landscapes of La Palma

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


In natural beauty, La Palma rivals all the other Canary Islands put together. Its immense, abyss-like crater, the Caldera de Taburiente, is considered to be the largest of its kind in the world. Deep within its pine-speckled, towering walls is a year-round abundance of water- gushing streams, boisterous cascades, and a plummeting waterfall. Outside the crater, high on the cloud-catching hillsides, 20 million-year-old laurel forests grow as dense as a jungle. In the southern half of the island, hills pitted with volcanic craters and mini-deserts of black lapilli speak of the island's volcanic past. This stark, striking landscape, all the more dramatic for its stabs of volcanic reds, oranges, and yellows, is far removed from the lush and verdant, tree-clad north

Landscapes of Mallorca

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


One of the books that won us the Sunday Times 'Oscar' for best guide book publisher and since 1984 the most widely-used walking guide for Mallorca. It was the first walking guide for the Mallorca, published when the island had a reputation as a haven for 'lager louts'. We knew better, and Mallorca is now one of the most popular walking areas in Europe (and a favourite destination for bird-watchers, too). This completely revised fifth edition updates the routes and maps to reflect changes since the previous edition was published. Whatever your age or hiking abilities, there's something here for you ­ from coastal strolls to extremely challenging climbs and descents

Landscapes of Malta and Gozo

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


Malta, Gozo and Comino attract hundreds of thousands of tourists each year, most of them from Britain, Italy, Germany and Scandinavia. Many are lured by the typical Mediterranean weather; others see Malta as a change from the Spanish 'Costas', while British ex-servicemen and their families, once stationed here, come back for a nostalgic look at how things have changed. Not everyone stays around the hotel pools or heads for the nearest beach and many people prefer touring or walking in the countryside

Landscapes of Menorca

Price: 12.99

Quantity:  


Those who enjoyed using the earlier editions of this guide found that the third edition was even better, with superb new maps and many new colour photographs. Upgraded walking routes avoided problem spots that arose in the past because of landowners who have objected to walkers crossing their land (even though the routes have always used public rights-of-way). This further updated fourth edition will delight Menorca's many enthusiasts

Landscapes of Paxos

Price: 7.99

Quantity:  


Our guide to Paxos has been out of print for a couple of years, because Noel Rochford, the author, is now living in Japan and was unable to undertake the updating for a new edition. However, we've now been fortunate in finding a walking enthusiast with an intimate knowledge of the island, who has brought the walk descriptions up to date. The moment you step foot on this island you can feel that your stay here is going to be both peaceful and restful. The sleepy fishing villages and the timeless countryside will cast their spell upon you. This is the ideal 'get away from it all' destination - where everyone strolls through olive groves and along the coast. Paxos, just 19 sq km of cosy countryside, is little more than a broken fragment of hills sitting anchored off the southern end of Corfu. The hills of Paxos are cloaked in a cool mantle of olive trees. Dark groves of cypresses pierce this silvery-green mantle. In the shade of these wooded hills lie sprinklings of rustic hamlets. But the real beauty of Paxos is the dazzling necklace of turquoise green coves that collar the eastern coastline.

Landscapes of the Picos de Europa


Quantity:  


The Picos de Europa, one of Europe's last mountain wilderness areas, are the high point of a long ridge of mountains which runs along the north coast of Spain, the Cordillera Cantabrica. Ranging in altitude from 150m to 2648m (about 500-8700ft), the Picos are divided into three spectacular limestone massifs separated from one another, and from the surrounding ranges, by precipitous gorges ­ a truly spectacular area in which to walk or tour.
