We had a one day hiking trip with amazing views along route 2. We took a taxi to one of the photo spots along the road and walked to Chipode. Well marked and good trails. Unfortunatly rain and fog stopped us from going on to Vallehermoso. Perhaps next time :-)

You MUST do this trip over from Los Cristianos. Ask to be with Hose as he is passionate about the area and funny at the same time. Take a kagoule and good trainers as it's damp in the jungle. The lunch is OK and the roads are good but with steep drops down into the ravines. Enjoy it.

Just open Wikipedia and search for this park ;-) This is a must when you are in La Gomera. Park is easily accessible from every point of the island. You can go for hiking by your own, as there is quite a lot of very good marked paths with profiles and approx. times information. Even older people or children can... More

Came here for the day on a guided tour. The park is fascinating. You see flora and fauna that has remained unchanged for 2 million years. Our guide, Raphael was incredibly well informed and is multi lingual. We were also given a demonstration of the native whistling language - this is much more entertaining than it sounds. We stopped in... More

We are staying in the dry south of La Gomera and wanted to see the northern greener areas. The Garajoney National Park provided that and more. The whole area is covered in green forests, truly beautiful and atmospheric. We were fortunate to visit on a clear day and could see for miles. The roads are good on the whole, but... More

Amazing trip to the small island you see from the harbour at Los C. that always seems to have a cloud at the top of it. Unspoilt scenery, and very green which makes a nice change from the aridity of the main island.

What a fantastic place to visit. From the hot arrid side of La Gomera to 'Jurassic Park' like side with thick green vegetation and forest, truly amazing views of the ultramarine blue sea sparklng between volcanic rocks as you drive along the high winding roads (good roads not too scary). Gets very, very hot in summertime - take lots of... More

La Gomera is one of the few places on Earth where there still are laurisilva rain forests, with plant species from the Tertiary period. Garajonay is where the giant laurel forests are and where you’ll feel like you just walked into Jurassic Park. The vegetation from the Tertiary period is truly overwhelming: 2 meters high dandelions, 3 meters high snapdragon... More

The Garajonay National Park is a UNESCO World Heriage Site and crowns the island of La Gomera. With its diverse habitats and protected status it offers a great deal for the visitor who is interested in nature. The area is criss crossed by hiking paths, roads and has many spectacular viewpoints. Laurasilval forests and dry heath or fayalbrenzal cover most... More
