This new 6th edition of Sunflower's popular guide to Lanzarote has been reformatted to feature almost double the number of walks without sacrificing any of the material from the previous book such as the day-trip to neighbouring Fuerteventura. Here are some highlights Key features: - 50 long and short walks - 16 short 'picnic' strolls ideal leg stretchers - 1:50,000 topo maps, updated to show all officially waymarked routes - 3 car tours 2 on Lanzarote and 1 on Fuerteventura - 2 fold-out touring maps showing walk locations ideal for planning - town plans of Arrecife, Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise and Corralejo on Fuerteventura - timetables for local buses - online update service Fascinating Lanzarote 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'. As for walking, the island caters beautifully for strollers but even hill-walkers will find a challenge or two amidst the stunningly beautiful landscapes. Great care has been taken with the walk details from printing the numbers of all 'official' waymarked trails existing at press date right down to naming local bus stops. But if walking is not your favourite pastime, then do explore Lanzarote by car. And while you're at it, why not hop over to Fuerteventura for a day? It's just 15 minutes away by fast ferry. The book includes a day out on that island, with a car tour covering the northern half. (There is also a walk on the tiny island of Lobos, which can be reached from either Lanzarote or Fuerteventura.) The best months for walking on Lanzarote are from November to March, but some of the walks can be done all year round.

Realising that his New Year is probably going to be a disaster, as usual, our narrator, on impulse, walks into a travel agency to book a week in the sun. Sensitive to his limited means and dislike of Muslim countries, the travel agent suggests an island full of 21st century hedonism, set in a bizarre lunar landscape - Lanzarote. On Lanzarote, one can meet some fascinating human specimens, notably Pam and Barbara - 'non-exclusive' German lesbians - who can give rise to some interesting combinations. Will they succeed in seducing Rudi, the police inspector from Luxembourg, currently living in exile in Brussels? Or will he join the 'Azraelian' sect, as they prepare for humanity to be regenerated by extra-terrestrials? As for our narrator, will he consider his week's holiday on the island a success?

A one-of-a-kind blend of art, nature, and conservation, The Underwater Museum re-creates an awe-inspiring dive into the dazzling under-ocean sculpture parks of artist Jason deCaires Taylor. Taylor casts his life-size statues from a special kind of cement that facilitates reef growth, and sinks them to the ocean floor. There, over time, the artworks attract corals, algae, and fish, and evolve into beautiful and surreal installations that are also living reefs. This volume brings readers face to face with these wonders and explains the science behind their creation. Ocean enthusiasts, divers, art lovers, and anyone entranced by the natural world will be instantly engrossed by this pearl of a book.

A guidebook to walking the Cathar Way, a waymarked trail through France's southwest, linking historic castles. This 250km (two-week) route runs through the foothills of the Pyrenees in the Languedoc region of southern France, from the Mediterranean to Foix. A challenging, fascinating and rewarding route, but not an arduous mountain trek. The trail runs from the Mediterranean coast westward to the historic town of Foix. It can be walked in two weeks or less by anyone who is well-equipped and moderately fit. Good-quality accommodation is available at regular intervals along the entire length of the trail. The trail traverses the dramatic foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, a beautiful countryside which enjoys plenty of sunshine and is rich in wildlife. The highlights of the Cathar Way are the 'castles in the sky' like Quéribus, Peyrepertuse and Montségur. These incredible medieval fortifications will forever be associated with the ill-fated Cathar 'heresy', which was brutally suppressed in the thirteenth century.
