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.

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
