It is hard to believe that in the space of a few miles, one can go from an almost Sahara environment to a sub tropical rain forest, shrouded in cloud. This is the jewel in La Gomeras crown. It is a walkers paradise that can challenge even the fittest and most experienced. It can get very chilly and damp, so... More

We recently did this trip and couldn't rate it more highly. We only paid €50 each whereas it was nearer €65 in most places. Picked up at Fanabe, coach to Los Christianos for the ferry which took 50 minutes. Coach again up and around Garajonay National Park which was fascinating to see the eerily moss clad trees. Very nice lunch... More

Spent about an hour there during a tour through la gomera, the place was just unreal, the higher you went up the mountains the more cold and wet it got. definitely would need to wear some warm clothes to enjoy it that extra bit more! amazing one in a life time experience!

Only visited for an hour during a tour of La Gomera, and could not believe both how green it was and how large, especially given the island is only approximately 10 miles by 10 miles, and when we approach the capital San Sebastián on the ferry from Tenerife the island looked very barren. We visited Laguna grande in the middle... More

Garajonay National Park is a must see attraction if you are in La Gomera. In fact if you wish to travel around La Gomera you cannot miss it as it takes up the whole centre of the island and the road system on the island works like the spokes of a bike wheel, where everything passes through the centre. This... More

You can't go to La Gomera and not visit the rainforest. El Cedro is a good place to experience the water in the North East Trade Winds reaching dew point, and the clouds forming before your very eyes, like vertical waterfalls. Driving and walking in the Laurisilva, you imagine that you see hobbits and elves. An ancient and beautiful place.... More

Quite a journey here from Playa Santiago but very helpful people in the museum. The best part was the Memory House and watching the video, then strolling around the grounds and seeing so many tropical plant specimens. Tasting the typical biscuits was worthwhile - and kept us going for a while with a coffee. It was lovely while it lasted... More

We booked a guided tour to La Gomera in Puerto-de-la-Cruz and we actually regreted it, but we had no ways out because we don't have a driving licence. The journey began at 6 am, we were driven to the port (it too more than 3 hours). Then the Fred Olsen ferry took us to the beautiful La Gomera islands. We... More

Depending were you are in the park, the scenery can be very different. We did a few hiking trails while there but were limited as we were travelling with small children and it was very hot. However, if you feel like it, you could spend days discovering the park. There are some beautiful "miradors" (viewpoints), where you can see to... More
