Our holiday walking grades


Grade 4

Full and half day walks at a moderate pace over hilly terrain.

Most of these holidays have an element of sightseeing as well.

Half day walks will probably involve about 3 hours of walking, with full day walks having around 5 hours. Expect ascents and descents of up to 600m.

Grade 5

Full day walks with moderate amounts of ascent and descent.

The paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground.

Walks will last up to 6 hours and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent. Some walks will be less demanding.

Grade 6

Full day walks with appreciable amounts of ascent and descent.

These walks are in more remote areas such as Andorra or northern Portugal.

Similar to Grade 5, but with most of the walks at the upper level of ascent/descent, time and distance.


Holiday Highlights

  • Explore two very different islands.
  • Follow ancient pathways dating back to the early days of Spanish rule.
  • Ascend the formidable Mount Teide volcano by cable car then enjoy walking on its lower slopes.
  • Hike between beautifully sited villages on the Anaga Peninsula.
  • Dine in local restaurants, a chance to sample both local cuisine and culture.
  • NEW Two Grades, Two Leaders, Two Walks on Tenerife!

This holiday is a combination of our two one week holidays Gran Canaria & Tenerife.

Here is your chance to walk a continent in just a week on Gran Canaria - a volcanic island just off the African coast with such vastly differing climates and landscapes that it has earned the name of ‘the miniature continent’. You’ll walk the high mountain range of the central Cumbre for endless dramatic views across the plains where remote cave villages hide amongst the rocks away from prying eyes. Further down the slopes you’ll find deep valleys full of lush vegetation and whitewashed rural villages on the Caminos Reales, the ancient pathways dating back to the early days of Spanish rule. Bask in the sun, stroll through alpine meadows and find shade in the majestic pine forests that dot the sub tropical valleys.

We stay in the historic port capital of Las Palmas, once an important trading post on route to the New World. Legend has it that Christopher Columbus stopped here to make repairs to his ship before continuing his voyage to the Americas. Over the centuries, Las Palmas has been visited (and occupied) by many nationalities and the multi-cultural influences are evident throughout the city. We will have time to explore the attractive and historical old quarters of Vegueta and Triana, a short bus ride from our hotel which is in the more modern quarter, where there are shops, restaurants and the magnificent sandy beach of Las Canteras. In the evenings we'll experience more local culture by dining in local restaurants.

For our second week we embark by flight to Tenerife, an island of contrasts, with dramatic and beautiful landscapes. We are based in San Cristobal de la Laguna, near Santa Cruz in the north of the island. Small enough to explore on foot, it’s packed with interesting architecture including its cathedral. Outside of the town you’ll explore the rugged Anaga Peninsula, a landscape of sheer ridges and green mountains with views across the open sea.

Although Tenerife is one of the most popular of the Canary Islands with 43% of inhabitants living there, don’t be discouraged there are still plenty of lesser known trails for us to take advantage of especially with Two Grades, Two Leaders, Two Walks. The islands history has helped create interesting and varied paths through its successive eruptions of Mount Teide through the years, leaving a rugged and volcanic landscape.

A major highlight for Tenerife is soaring to the summit of Mount Teide Volcano by cable car. As a group we will ascend the mount and take in the spectacular Pico Viejo viewpoint for what can only be described as the best views in the Canaries. Once we have come down via cable car we will have an easy walking day on the lower slopes and the famous Rocques de Garcia.

Our Christmas and New Year departures are a chance to see in the festive season in a different setting.

  • Distance

    5 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


Las Mercedes to El Batan (Grade 4)

Nestled next to the forest of Las Mercedes adorned with tree ferns, giant laurels and succulents clinging to rock walls is a rural village of the same name. Our path leads us out the village and up through the forest. As you walk take time to admire the diverse flora and fauna along your route. As we emerge from the forest our view opens up to valley walking before our finish point of El Batan with expansive views down to the coast near Punta del Hidalgo our Grade 6 destination.

  • Distance

    5 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


Afur to Taganna (Grade 4)

Along with our Grade 6 walks we start out from the tiny hamlet of Afur an undulating path takes us through small parcels of farmland, crossing then following a stream with picturesque waterfalls to a beach with dramatic cliffs. Climbing eastwards, we continue along a coastal path with breath-taking views. We pass through a cluster of buildings at Auchones, famous for its wine before our final destination and the waiting bus in Taganana. Not recommended for vertigo sufferers.

To Teide! (Grade 4 & 6)

The walking around this area is leisurely enabling a more relaxed days walking, however this is still a highlight of the holiday. The landscape around Teide gives you the final different terrain the island has to offer as we will have already discovered the lush green valleys of the Anaga Peninsula to dramatic rocky coastal paths. Teide offers arid dessert, Luna like walking.

Our route in a way takes us from the very summit of Teide down to the Famous Roque de Garcia.

The journey starts ascending Mount Teide by cable car for a guided visit of the crater and viewpoints, one of the best experiences to be had on the island. We are at 3,555m above sea level with super views from Pico Viejo Viewpoint.

After an hour at the top of Mount Teide we are back down at the cable car station where two route options are available. One slightly longer than the other. Neither route is a Grade 4 or 6 but offer a nice cross-country route down through the volcanic landscape to the Rocque de Garcia and Cathedral Rock escarpments.

Once we reach the visitor centre at Roque de Garcia our routes can then be extended for those wishing to discover more of this landscape.

It is important to note the height of 3,555m and that the weather at the top of Mount Teide will be completely different to the base of the cable car station. Sometimes in winter this can be below freezing. Layers are the order of the day to cope with our changes in temperature.

  • Distance

    6 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


Pedro Alvarez to Punta Hildalgo (Grade 6)

Starting at this rural village the initial ascent has spectacular views over the local area and towards the west coast. We continue uphill through the laurel forest of Anaga before the path eases for a while. This gives you the opportunity to admire the amazing flora and fauna. The path changes as we head downhill, twisting and turning before the forest opens, revealing the full beauty of the barrancos before you. This area was formed millions of years ago and hasn’t changed much. You can soak in the vista during your picnic lunch before a challenging descent takes us down to the coast.

  • Distance

    9 miles

  • Ascent/Descent


Afur Circuit (Grade 6)

From the tiny hamlet of Afur an undulating path takes us through small parcels of farmland, crossing then following a stream with picturesque waterfalls to a beach with dramatic cliffs. Climbing eastwards, we continue along a coastal path with breath-taking views. We pass through a cluster of buildings at Auchones, famous for its wine before an optional drink and a rest in Taganana. A challenging climb takes us up to La Cumbrecilla and a gentle descent to our waiting bus. Not recommended for vertigo sufferers.

Trip Information

All the details you need

Holiday Grade

1st Week - In Gran Canaria we only operate Grade 5

2nd Week - In Tenerife we operate Grade 4 & 6.

The wild volcanic landscapes of Gran Canaria make for interesting and varied walking. This holiday which includes full day walks with moderate amounts of ascent and descents of 750m with some walks having longer descents reaching more towards 900m. Our maximum altitude on this holiday is 1,600m, you might find yourself walking above the clouds. Given that the island is on a volcano the terrain is rugged and will at times require a head for heights. Paths are mostly good, but some walks will involve long steep ascents over rough, uneven ground which at times can be loose.

Generally on Tenerife you can expect full day walks of up to 6 hours, with ascents and descents averaging around 750m. On some walks you can expect longer descents of just over 1000m. Paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground and areas where vertigo sufferers may struggle, so a head for heights is necessary. The maximum altitude we reach on this holiday is 970m. Walking boots and suitable clothing are required.

Please see our Proposed Itinerary below for more walk examples.

Walks & Excursions

Each day we will walk between 4 and 6 hours with cumulative daily ascents and descents in the range of 300m to 750m depending on the grade of walk you choose to do. The paths we take are rough and steep at times but will be taken at a pace appropriate to the grade of the holiday. The higher-grade walking programme will involve higher ascents and maybe longer in duration.  

Local Transport Costs

All local transport costs in conjunction with the advertised activity programme are included in the holiday cost. There may be occasions where additional visits or excursions are added to enrich your experience, these will be paid for locally by you if you choose to participate. Local transport can be a mix of private hire coaches, taxis, local buses and ferries depending on the itinerary.

Optional Excursions

A range of local excursions and activities may be available to book at your destination through a local operator. We have no involvement in such activities or excursions which are not run, supervised or controlled in any way by us. Your contract will be with the local activity supplier and we accept no responsibility for their actions or omissions.

Spending Money

Holiday Budgeting

When budgeting for your holiday, you will need to consider drinks, any meals not included in the holiday price, non-included entrance fees, optional excursions you may choose to participate in locally and any souvenirs or additional services such as laundry. A general guideline for lunches and drinks is £10-£20 per person per day.

Currency in Spain

The currency in Spain is the euro.

Holiday Currency

On Gran Canaria and Tenerife, ATMs can be found locally in Las Palmas andSan Cristobel town centres or along the promenade as you walk into town. There are several banks in both city centres as well should you need them.


Although entirely at your own discretion, tipping is an important aspect of tourism and hospitality life and expectations are fairly high. In order to simplify tipping, we strongly recommend that you allow your leader to take care of making sure tips are given to hotel and restaurant staff and to local guides and drivers. This will be done using some funds provided by us together with, if you wish, a contribution from you, which he/she will collect during the holiday.

Entry Requirements

General Passport Advice

It is a good idea to carry photocopies of the personal details pages of your passport. Should you lose your passport, this may assist with the issue of replacement documents and your return to your home country.

Passport and visa requirements can change at any time. It is your own responsibility to ensure that you inform yourself from a professionally qualified source on, and comply with, such requirements.

General passport advice for UK nationals on the UK Government website.

FCDO Travel Advice

You must ensure you check all entry requirements in good time by reviewing the official FCDO advice for your destination. Please take time to read and regularly check this website for changes to the entry requirements and any local restrictions.

Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination

You may be required to provide proof that you have been fully vaccinated when travelling or in your destination. Proof of vaccination can either be digital via the NHS app or a printed copy via NHS Hard Copy. We recommend allowing seven working days for your printed copy to arrive. Please note both the NHS app and printed copy are only valid for 30 days.

We anticipate that all travellers will need to be fully vaccinated including the booster jab and to carry proof of this with them at all times. Some indoor venues require, and may ask for proof of vaccination, as well as masks becoming mandatory for indoor public spaces, and we ask you to be prepared for this.

Face Masks

Some airlines or destinations are requiring the wearing of FFP2, FFP3, KN95 or N95 masks without a valve. You should check the FCDO advice for your destination and with your airline before you travel, although you may wish to have one of these masks on hand just in case.

Brexit Passport Advice

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must meet the Schengen area rules.

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

The guidance for Schengen border guards may not be updated until the spring of 2022. Until then, for some Schengen countries your passport may need to be less than 10 years old during your whole visit, and the 3 months at the end of your visit may need to be within 10 years of your passport’s issue date.

Check both the issue date and the expiry date in your passport. If you renewed your passport early, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. This could affect the requirement for your passport to be less than 10 years old.

Non British Passport holders should consult the host country’s embassy for applicable passport and visa entry requirements.

Footwear & Kit List


Lightweight waterproof walking boots with a good moulded sole (such as Vibram or similar) and a deep tread and which provide ankle support are strongly recommended and may be essential for some walks. 

General Kit List

Outdoor activities are always safer and more enjoyable if you are prepared.

  • Walking socks

Further Travel Advice

For further advice please visit:

You might wish to take a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel with you for times when you're unable to wash your hands.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition of booking with Ramblers Walking Holidays that you have adequate valid travel insurance. It is your responsibility to arrange appropriate travel insurance and ensure you have read and understood the full terms and conditions of your travel insurance policy to ensure that you are covered for all activities you intend to undertake whilst on the trip, including all optional activities.

Your travel insurance policy must fully cover you for medical expenses and emergency repatriation. Please ensure your policy covers the entire duration of your holiday. If you are walking at altitude please ensure that there is no upper altitude limit which may limit or exclude cover for your trip. Medical and repatriation insurance cover are not mandatory for UK residents who are travelling on trips within the United Kingdom.

Whoever you insure with, please ensure that you take full details, and ideally the policy itself, with you on holiday and provide our tour leader with your insurer's name, the policy number and emergency assistance contact numbers.

Please note that it is very difficult to obtain travel insurance once your holiday arrangements have started.

Covid-19 Cover

If you should have symptoms and test positive for Covid-19 whilst abroad, you may need to stay where you are until you test negative and you may have to seek treatment. We strongly recommend that you take out an insurance policy that covers you for this eventuality.

Looking for travel insurance?

If you have not already arranged cover, please visit SunWorld who offer travel insurance.

SunWorld policies include cover for COVID-19, subject to applicable terms and conditions.


From January 1st, 2021 UK travellers can continue to use their European Heath Insurance Card (EHIC) – which can last up to five years, until its expiry date, to gain access to medical assistance during your holiday. However, you will no longer be covered in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland. Travellers without a valid EHIC can apply for a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which will replaces the EHIC once it has been phased out. Please note however that the EHIC/GHIC should not be considered a substitute for medical or travel insurance.

Personal Safety

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office provides up to date information on security and local laws for travellers, together with current passport and visa information, at Please take a few minutes to look at the current advice on your planned destination.

Please be aware of what's going on around you, take sensible precautions with your credit cards and passport and avoid displays of wealth such as wearing expensive jewellery or watches. Do not carry more cash on you than you will need for each day, and we recommend that a money belt is used.

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We're committed to ethical tourism in all our destinations. Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups not only gives you an up close and personal experience of your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate environment. We feel that the most important starting point to protect the environment is to be out in it. For more details visit our website.

The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust

Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel’s profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Please do provide us with a mobile phone contact number. We will only use this to contact you with important information relating to your holiday arrangements. 

Do keep your mobile phones switched on and readily available when travelling to the airport or if delayed in transit so that we can contact you with any last minute information relating to your travel arrangements.  

As a matter of courtesy, please switch off your mobile phone during walks, or endeavour to minimise its use. Please also try to minimise the use of mobile devices during group meals.
