Amazing drop in temperature whilst you drive through the forest. Amazing views from panaramas. Roads quite windy as everwhere and narrow in places . Sun often causes strobing effect through the trees.

We did several walks and they were all quite different and all well postsigned. If you stay away from the large parking areas it is actually pretty quiet as well as the area is quite big and the bus tourist usual stay around the major attractions. Good food at Grande Laguna! la Creces has a lovey campground and good place... More

It's scenic the views are breathtaking!!! Something warm is advisable the temperature can drop about 6degrees from coast to the top of the... More

The guided walks are excellent - giving you information, particularly as to how the climate enables such a diverse range from desert to... More

I have visited La Gomera this year. It was a one day trip from Tenerife. The main reason I wanted to go there is amazing flora. South of island is very hot (almost desert) but north ... amazing, green, colorfull. If you like not exciting trip (not really active ones) but just sightseeing - its the place for you.

We were staying on Tenerife and took the chance of visiting La Gomera on a coach/boat trip. We really enjoyed the day, seeing many places all over the island including this facinating park. We wished that we could have stayed longer in each place, but I guess it has given us a flavour of the Island so we know that... More
