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

We visited this place on a couch tour of la gomera, that we took when staying over at tenerife. This place is full of unusual yet interesting sights and is based in what we were in formed as, a tropical rainforest. They told us various stories of the place and of satanic rituals that took place here many years ago,... More

Going to La Gomera from Tenerife was a shock. I went for a day trip from one to the other and it was so different. Tenerife is so built up but only 90 minutes away, La Gomera is a completely different culture. These are the the real "Canarians". This park was so lovely to go to - very pretty and... More

We stayed 3 nights at La Gomera which I think is a lot nicer than just visiting for the day as many people do. On a day trip you really don't have the time to explore the park. There is an information point where you can actually get a lot of information about the trails etc. The visitor center is... More

Visited La Gomera on a days coach trip from Tenerife via the Fred Olson ferry. We loved the trip in the mountains and national park. The mountains are spectacular and the sheer drops from the roadside, breath taking. We were given a very interesting talk throughout the trip by our coach guide. Would suggest that the trip would not be... More

The trip to the top of Garajonay is nice, not too heavy either. Its sad though that a lot of the forest was burned not that long ago, which means walking alot in charred remains. Looking at the time it takes to regrow, this will be so for a few years it seems. The trip to Hermigua was green, no... More

Really worth the effort - even though the weather for us was appalling for the Canary Islands. We were down to 6.5C in the low cloud at one point! Still it is a lovely forest for walking. Quite challenging in places - which was good. The occasional shafts of sunlight showed how lovely it would have been in better conditions.... More

Lovely Natural Park. Lots of nice walks through the woods. Pretty flowers and lovely bird songs. They have a nice café with plenty of indoor seating. There is a small exhibition of flora and fauna near the café. The temperature at the top of the mountains can be very cold. It is better to take a jacket. Lovely place if... More
