El Hierro: Edge of Europe

  • Following superb trails across this little-known island, the ‘Isla del Meridiano’.
  • Incredible views of El Golfo Bay and the other-worldly volcanic landscape.
  • Witnessing remarkable twisted trees, shaped by the forces of Mother Nature.
  • Exploring unspoilt villages and the authentic hospitality of the islanders.
  • Tastes of the Canaries—fabulous food, including locally-grown tropical fruits.
The remarkable island outpost of El Hierro is perched on the westernmost outreaches of Europe; a true Atlantic gem with a rare sleepy charm and fantastic walking trails. Until Columbus set sail, El Hierro was seen as the ‘Ends of the Earth’, and still remains one of the least-visited of the Canary Islands. Now a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, 60% of its territory is protected to preserve El Hierro’s natural and cultural diversity. Wild coastlines are edged with columns of basalt, whilst a subtropical interior is flanked by lava flows spilling from volcanic cones. Trails explore picturesque farmland, evergreen woodlands of juniper and laurel, and other-worldly semi-arid lunar-like landscapes.
