Spain The Canaries - El Hierro - 2016

March 5th to 12th 2016

My trip was organized by Macs Adventure. The main interest for this trip was to walk on the island of El Hierro, the smallest and most westerly island in The Canaries.

The weather could have been a lot better. The sun was shining out at sea most of the week but a thick low cloud sat over the whole island nearly all of the week. I found myself walking in the clouds and rain for two days. The teraine was at times very steep and with the rain the walking was difficult.

I have produced only one page for this trip to show photographs of each walking day without the usual additional wildlife page.
