Malta and Gozo provide wonderful opportunities for walking. The islands have a range of enjoyable routes passing impressive historical, cultural, landscape and environmental features. The islands are quite compact so that on any one walk you can experience a variety of interesting sites and features. The Mediterranean climate, exotic flora and magnificent coastline contribute to a great walking experience. In addition, access to the start and end points (usually by public bus), is very easy.
We are keen to promote rambling on Malta and Gozo. To help you get most pleasure from the walks we offer the following books which include comprehensive maps and route descriptions:
These books have been written jointly by Jonathan Henwood and Emmet Mc Mahon, both of whom are environmental scientists with a close familiarity with the natural and built environment of Malta. The books were prepared with practical support from the Rambler’s Associated of Malta and financial support from Malta International Airport and Ministry of Gozo. The first three books above are available in paper and as eBooks. The Gozo Coastal Walk book is as yet only available as an eBook.
The books can be bought in good bookshops throughout Malta and Gozo. They can also be purchased directly through this site, either as a paperback which is posted to you or as an eBook. The eBook costs €6.00 while the hardcopy book cost €11 which includes postage to anywhere in Europe. The eBooks are in PDF format and are suitable for viewing on a Laptop, Tablet or Smartphone. The payment is made by credit card using the secure Paypal system. To make a purchase, click onto our BOOKSTORE page.
