We went on a guided walk in Garajonay. A minibus dropped us off, and we met the excellent guide, a German lady called Mieke (she spoke excellent English). The walk was about 5 miles, mostly downhill. We loved the misty forest paths - they are very well waymarked. One pleasant surprise was the abundance of colourful flowers along the route.... More

The Garajonay National Park, is huge and if you are going from one area to another you are more than likely to go through it. Fantastic for walkers, but if you are going a distance make sure you take supplies with you. The Scenery is amazing, and eerily quiet. The flora and fauna is very diverse. Two words of warning,...

Always take jumpers and a waterproof coat as we experienced lovely hot sunny weather and on another day it was cold, misty and damp. Be prepared for both. Fantastic walks and superb views if it is fine and clear. There are so many lovely walks to do, it really is a walkers paradise. A walking stick is useful. Interesting plants... More

It's hard to write a review of the Garajonay Park, without mentioning the rest of the island because, it is very intriguing place to visit which deserves totally separate review...Anyway, I went there in 2011 with Thomson excursion by coach, with a guide. The park itself is a fantastic place, where you can see many endemic plant species, trees covered... More

Way up in the mountains of La Gomera is the sensational Garonjay National Park - so misty in the drizzle and so full of dripping Laurels, this is an island where you could imagine pixies and leprochauns living under the hordes of fairytale mushroom fungi. We'd just done a day trip from sunny Los Gigantes and wondered why all the... More

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
