4th Edition of the La Palma Tour & Trail Super-Durable Map is now available. The large 1:40,000 scale, combined with splitting the island into a North (Landscape view) and South (Portrait view) with a generous overlap, produces double sided map whose total size is 840mm by 600mm and folds to 235mm by 120mm.
You get the most detailed map of La Palma that is produced including our 'Tour & Trail' level of detail ranging from major roads to secondary roads to minor roads to streets and camino rural narrow country roads, plus dirt roads and walking trails. Altitude background colouring is designed to clearly show the altitude range when travelling across the island by car or on foot. 100 metre and 50 metre contours are clearly shown on the map along with a large number of individual height points and all of the official 'Trig' points.
Tour & Trail attention to detail is legendary as is our useful symbol range including miradors, picnic areas, petrol stations, bar/restaurants and parking areas where you can pull off the road safely. You will easily identify springs, caves, sports grounds, cemeterys, churches, chapels, lighthouses, towers and forts, camping areas, wind turbines, hotels etc. For adventurers on foot Tour & Trail Maps are researched and designed by hikers for use by hikers.
The comprehensive GPS ground surveys produce the best road mapping available but the value of this "on the ground research" becomes even more important when you leave the tarmac. All of the DWG walking routes are accurately GPS surveyed giving you confidence in the accuracy of our Tour & Trail Maps. La Palma Tour & Trail Super-Durable Map 4th edition includes all the walking routes from Walk! La Palma along with the GR130 (in eight one day sections) and GR131 (in three one day sections) long distance hiking routes, plus details of the PR walking routes (Pequeno Recoridos which can be completed in one day, forty in total), plus details of the SL walking routes (Senderos Locales - local routes of less than 10 kilometres, thirty-six in total).
It all adds up to the most detailed, most durable, most useful map of La Palma that you can buy anywhere. For the new 4th edition there is one new official walking route along with our usual updating for new developments including a couple of hotels and the unfortunate closure of the popular chiringuito at Faro de Fuencaliente (Health & Safety) plus updating some walking trails. If you want the best value map of La Palma then buy this Tour & Trail Super-Durable 4th Edition.
We recommend everybody to obtain our Super-Durable editions printed with 100% oxygenation inks on Polyart by the UK's leading map printer, which produces a map that feels like silk but will stand up to the roughest treatment of outdoor adventuring and yet fold up like new at the end of your adventure. Tour & Trail Super-Durable Maps are more expensive than paper maps, but represent better value.
