Discovery and hiking tour in the green nature and paradise of La Gomera
Program of the day
We start early in the morning with the pick up in your hotel or at a nearby meeting point. The ferry leaves in Los Christianos at round about 08:45 a.m. After 1 hour you will arrive in San Sebastián de La Gomera, the small island’s capital. Sometimes with a bit of luck you can even see some dolphins during the journey by ferry. Our transfer bus starts via the small and comfortable mountain roads in direction north-east of the island. Our first stop is planned in Agulo in the Visitor Center „Centro de Visitantes“. Nearby you find the spectacular new skywalk and view point Mirador de Abrante. Normally with good weather conditions you have amazing views to Tenerife and the Teide mountain.
We continue on the road through the National Park over the island. During the one hour bus trip your guide will inform you about the flora and fauna of the Garajonay National Park and more interesting facts about La Gomera. The impressive hiking tour starts in the green and famous laurel or “rainforest“. Later on you will walk on old village trails and cross a canyon with amazing views.
After our hike we will stop in a typical local bar in the small pottery village El Cercado (lunch is optional). You can taste a local menu for a very reasonable price. Enjoy the culinaric specialities of La Gomera!
