Off the beaten track you’ll find the Garoe Tree. A most unusual tree and location. Such beauty cannot be put into words.

Remarkable spot on a remarkable island
Dec 2018 • Couples
The entire trip there is a bit of an adventure (or hike), but the views and the spot are worth the effort (driving skill of the walk)

Interesting history of the island
Feb 2018 • Couples
We did this centre on a walk from San Andres to Valverde with Atlantidea hiking company.

It is essentially a path to the Garoe tree along which you will also see how the original habitants of the island used the landscape to store water. The tree also has a romantic story about how the Spanish invaders discovered the tree saving them from dying of thirst but killing the woman who shared its existence.

We visited after it had been raining and it was a little slippy in places, you would definitely want good shoes/boots in winter.

You can enter using your El Hierro passport which gives you access to many museums/centres across the island.

You can drive to it also, there is a car park. There are toilets and a souvenir shop but no cafe.

The tree is more symbolic than anything as it was only planted in 1949 after the original was destroyed in a hurricane. They used historic records to identify the type of tree to replant it many years later.

Interesting place but staff not professional in time keeping
Mar 2016 • Solo
I was told that this was one of the must visit places in El Hierro, to see the famous tree. It was interesting to see the tree and the natural water pits around but the path leading to the tree was quite slippery, the scenery around was spectacular. As I did not drive, I had to walk there and back, on my last morning I took the bus and asked the bus driver to drop me off at the point nearest to the site as I wanted to be there when the site opened at 10 am. I got there at about 9.30 and by 10 am, there was a group of us, about 9 in total, waiting for the attraction to open. The person in charge, a lady, did not arrive till about 10.30 am and not even a word of apolopy for being late! I was quite annoyed because I thought this was very unprofessional on her part and I had to walk (the walk was very nice) back to Valverde after the visit to catch my flight to Tenerife in the afternoon.

Special water bearing tree according to El Hierro's stone age civilisation

Interesting visit to this unique tree revered by the Bimbaches over many centuries. Beautifully situated in the hilly countryside with colourful wild flowers everywhere.
