Discover La Gomera
La Gomera is the second smallest of the Canary Islands. This island, of volcanic origin,
looks like a pancake whose diameter hardly exceeds 25 km and is situated about 350 km from the North-West Coast of Africa. Starting from the highest point on the island, the Garajonay, at 1487 m above sea level, ravines descend in all directions, down to the sea. These barrancos end in fertile valleys with countless palmfields and bananaterraces with small pittoresque villages that lie embedded in the landscape.
The Garajonay National Park is particularly outstanding. It is a prehistoric subtropical forest with the UNESCO World Heritage designation.A great variety of laurel trees grow in this lush and green forest, together with tree heather, huge ferns and other beautiful vegetation, oft coated by mist.
La Gomera is also called the magical island because of its healing and transforming energies and its fabulous nature.
You can enjoy the peace and stunning views of La Gomera on the many routes that cross the island from one end to another. The island with its mild climate is perfect for walking or mountainbiking with surprising outings possible through impressive countryside. Afterwards you can take a refreshing dive into the Atlantic Ocean and relax at one of the beautiful blacksand beaches
For those who love watersports there are several possibilities to dive or sail.
It is also worth making a whale watch trip which mostly includes seeing delphins as well.
