The ‘Siete Islas’ route…

Next time I'm on the ferry to Fuerteventura it'll be about three weeks before I get home!

Last year I walked the extreme northernmost point to southernmost point of Lanzarote – for practical reasons on the seven islands I’m doing things a little differently.

Looking at maps I’ve decided to pick towns and villages on opposing sides of the islands. The the two main reasons being;

  1. on a couple of the islands it would mean walking to a point only to have to walk back
  2. in picking some of the start and finish points I’ll need to use public transport and also had to bear that in mind

So, here’s the route and an approximation of the distances based on Google Street Map via the road routes…

    • Lanzarote, Orzola to Playa Blanca –  70km
    • Fuerteventura, Corralejo to Morro Jable – 120km
    • Gran Canaria, Las Palmas to Maspalomas – 60km

  • Tenerife, Santa Cruz to Los Cristianos – 80km
  • La Gomera, San Sebastian to Valle Gran Rey – 40km
  • La Palma, Barlovento to Fuencalliente – 65km
  • El Hierro, Puerto de la Estaca to Pozo de Sabinosa – 35km

I’ve got a rough schedule in mind, which may slide a day or two either way dependant on progress, or indeed delays…
