La Gomera Tours

  • Los Roques, La Gomera
 

Although the second smallest island in the Canaries at 370 square kilometres, La Gomera has a great variety in landscape, from subtropical laurisilva forest shrouded in mist to cultivated terraces of banana groves and vineyards to a vertiginous rocky coastline.

At the heart of La Gomera is Garajonay National Park, whose deep ravines are covered in ancient laurisilva, or laurel forest, the largest and best-preserved example of its kind in the Canary Islands and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Despite La Gomera’s relatively small size, half of the archipelago’s laurisilva is to be found here.

On a clear day you can see the islands of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, La Palma and El Hierro from the 1487 m-high summit of Mount Garajonay. The Gomerans have developed a unique whistling language, called El Silbo, to communicate across these ravines, the only country in the world to do so.

La Gomera has some great walking trails both in and out of the Garajonay area. As it’s a mountainous island, the going may not be easy in places, but you’ll be rewarded with stunning views along the way. Other worthwhile activities include taking a boat to see the impressive basalt pillars of Los Òrganos or dolphins and whales, or diving in the transparent waters off the south coast.

Like its neighbour El Hierro, La Gomera has few beaches and as it’s a volcanic island, most are made of black sand. The main ones are in San Sebastian, the capital and island’s main port, and Playa Santiago. Smaller beaches are Valle Gran Rey and the sheltered Playa de la Caleta.

You can retrace the steps of Christopher Columbus in San Sebastian, the last port of call for before he set sail across the Atlantic, and visit the house where he is supposed to have stayed. Or visit the pastel-coloured colonial village of Agulo in the north, with its views of Mount Teide in Tenerife.
