About Lanzarote and Fuerteventura

Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, the two easternmost Canary Islands, are very different from the rest of the archipelago. With their odd combination of volcanic and Saharan-style landscapes, they form a special destination – one where you can find birds and other animals that occur nowhere else in Europe or even the world.
Unexpected perhaps for these dry islands, there is beautiful flora to explore, while the ocean itself is inviting for snorkelling or watching dolphins and seabirds. With this guidebook you’ll discover that Lanzarote and Fuerteventura have much more to offer than just sun and sand.

About the authors

Dirk Hilbers (NL, 1976), set up the Crossbill Guides Foundation and travels Europe to research the guidebooks. This is the 16th guide on which he has worked. As a biologist, when not in the field, Dirk Hilbers is a free-lance writer and lecturer in the field of environmental ethics.
Kees Woutersen (NL, 1956) lives and works in Huesca in the north of Spain. Before retirement, he ran his own nature travel company, Aragon Natuurreizen, that specialises in bird trips, including trips to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Besides this guide Kees also wrote, together with Dirk, the Crossbill Guide to Tenerife and La Gomera, plus several other guides on areas in Spain and Portugal.
