The Garajonay forest is amazing. You experience very old trees covered with moss sometimes in mystic fog, sometimes intertwined with rays of sun. The paths are very well signposted, we found it virtually impossible to get lost. Many of the main paths are pretty simple, they don't feel like hiking, more like taking a walk. For example the Las Creces... More

La Gomera is a strange shape it has a very thin strip of coatal area and then pushes straight to a great height. Because it's a high altitude (essentially in the clouds) the national park has a completely different climate to the lower coastal area. The rain forests have amazing coverage of trees and the park is well worth a... More

On a recent trip to Tenerife we decided to take a tour to La Gomera. Although we have been taking winter holidays in Tenerife for many years and our resort looks out onto the island of La Gomera (which constantly has a cloud over it), we have never visited, so we decide to go on an organised trip 62 euros...

We took a day walking to the summit using route 14. It's not too challenging for anyone who is reasonably fit. We went with our 2yr old daughter so took our time and a nice picnic. I carried her most of the way and it wasn't too hard work. The lower part of the walk was lush and cool with... More

Tour at rip over to La Gamera.Book a office on sea front ,half the price of rep price and exactly the same trip.pock up from hotel and very well organised .Beautiful island, just watch weather forecasts for picking your day.We paid that little bit extra for fast boat, well worth it.Inclusive lunch was not bad either.

Many of the walks in La Gomera are over rough ground with steep ascents and descents. In Garajonay National Park there are new trails set out with easier walking along tracks with signposting. As these are all quite recent use an update map or guide. A cooler place to walk within the lovely forest. Also the opportunity to do some... More

This ancient woodland is quite unlike anything we've been to before and contrasts sharply with the Canaries beach resorts. It is cool, damp and very pretty. A large network of walks make it great for ramblers. Only down side was when ordering a couple of coffees in the cafe at Grande Laguna, the staff were a bit rude and the... More

The trees and walkways were awesome. Very green from all the moisture. It was a pretty drive through nature and nice for viewing. Nothing beats natural environments for feeling the peace of the place.
