Canary Islands II - Tenerife and La Gomera
Tenerife and La Gomera are the most diverse of the Canaries. Set in a dramatic landscape, these are islands of extremes: from sun-baked, shrubby lava fields to evergreen cloud forests, and from lush terraced mountain slopes to the strange high-altitude semi-desert in the crater of the Teide volcano – each corner is a different world. Only two ingredients are consistently present: spectacular scenery and an endemic flora and fauna. Over 30% of the wildflowers of Tenerife and La Gomera occur nowhere in the world but here, bestowing the title the ‘Galapagos of botany’ on the islands. Likewise, the birdlife, the reptiles and butterflies have evolved into a unique fauna. Hence, these islands are a must-see for anyone with a passion for the natural world. This book is designed to be your companion on your explorations.
