Walking in La Gomera

  • Identifying bizarre plants in the lush green forests.
  • Wandering though dense laurel forests, remnants of eras past and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Strolling through the brightly coloured streets of San Sebastian.
  • The perfect walking temperature all year round.
  • Coastal and mountain hikes, and hand-picked accommodation
Discover the botanical paradise of La Gomera on foot. La Gomera, the greenest of the Canary Islands, lies just 30 kilometres off the coast of Tenerife, but is a world away in terms of atmosphere and landscape. Steep cliffs along the rocky coastline give way to volcanic peaks inland and deep gorges, or barrancos, limit access to many parts of the island. La Gomera's greatest treasures are found in the National Park Garajonay, among the dense vegetation of its mysterious laurel woods, where centuries-old trees clothed in moss give the impression of a tropical rain forest. In the valleys sculpted landscapes of terraces of banana, papaya and mango trees are equally beautiful. The rugged coast of steep cliffs and small coves are another delight. La Gomera is truly a walker's paradise. Our carefully selected walking routes explore both the coast and mountains and reward with spectacular views and surprises around every corner to make for an unforgettable week of walking. During your walking holiday in La Gomera you will stay at three hand picked small two and three star hotels of character, as well as the beautiful four star Parador hotel in San Sebastian. We take care of every detail of your holiday so you don’t have to worry about a thing, except for having a wonderful week. Our Walking in La Gomera holiday includes; door to door baggage transfer, detailed route notes, transfers as necessary and emergency phone support.
