We liked this park very much. It is very nice just to drive through it as the trees hang over the road. We were trekking there and had very nice weather so we really enjoyed it. When we are in La Gomera again we will go there definitely.

The forest covers a huge area with many accessible walks. We've been here many times in all weathers, it's good to escape from the summer heat here. Very atmospheric when shrouded in cloud. Any time is good in Laguna Grande for a family outing, unless it's raining. The Visitors Centre a must for first time visitors.

Beautiful ancient forest with easy walking. It was unusually hot and sunny when we visited and the forest was a welcome respite from the exposed mountains.

The nature at this island is absolutely fabolous! The national Park offers a broad network of trails, and you get a map at the visitor centre.

Garajonay National Park covers the interior of La Gomera including the highest point of the island. It is a beautiful place, deeply forested with moss and lichens and a completely different eco system to the coastal areas. Just driving into the park is interesting as you can see clear differences in the vegetation as you climb into the cooler, wetter... More

The national park is a very special ecological area. The trees, lichens and mosses depend on the mists that envelop the mountains. The air is fresh and pure.

We visited this park as part of an excursion from our ship, the Azamara Journey. The walk took us from a small parking area for about an hour into the caldera and to the top of the central peak. Our guide explained the tale of the Romeo and Juliet affair that gives the peak and the park it's name. The... More

A truly different experience. We mostly saw it from the car and with short stops but next time we will be there longer and follow some of the trails.
