La Gomera Trekking

2 Islands Are Better Than 1


Wish to explore more than one island? Then our La Gomera trek is perfect for you.

We start our journey with a short ferry ride (about 50 minutes) to the port of San Sebastian de La Gomera. As we disembark we meet with our shuttle that will take us up to the national park. Our first stop is the visitors centre to get a taste of the flora and fauna we will experience on our trek before heading to the forest of Garajonay. Our easy hike through the great forest is an unspoilt hiking paradise, wandering through the mossy forest of Garajonay which is now a world heritage site. We pass many ancient and traditional villages through our hike so you will be able to stop for lunch and try the amazing cuisine of the island (not included in price).

An interesting fact is that the inhabitants of La Gomera have an ancient way of communicating across deep ravines by means of a whistled speech called Silbo Gomero which can be heard up to 2 miles away. This whistled language is indigenous to the island, and its existence has been documented since Roman times. Invented by the original inhabitants of the island, the Guanches, Silbo Gomero was adopted by the Spanish settlers in the 16th century and survived after the Guanches were entirely assimilated. When this means of communication was threatened with extinction at the dawn of the 21st century, the local government required all children to learn it in school.

After the trek we continue back to the capital city of La Gomera and begin our journey back to Tenerife.
