Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Tour starts El Medano, Tenerife

Our tour starts in El Medano on the south coast of Tenerife, a short journey from Tenerife South airport (15 minutes) and Los Cristianos port (25 minutes). El Medano is a laid back coastal resort popular with locals and visitors, with a long, natural, golden sand beach stretching from the town square to the foot of Montana Roja (a local landmark and nature reserve), two further beaches and a choice of restaurants and bars. The beaches are particularly popular with windsurfers and kite boarders, and people wanting to avoid the bigger resorts.

Accommodation: Hotel Playa Sur Tenerife(or similar)

Day 2 - Ferry to La Gomera. Descend to Chejelipes via La Laja village

This morning we drive to the port of Los Cristianos and take a ferry to the green, verdant island of La Gomera. Docking in the small, pretty port of San Sebastian we immediately get an idea of the terrain, as impressive mountains loom up from the ocean behind the colourful town. After checking into our hotel we drive up to Collada de Peraza, the start of our first walk. From here we follow the trail down a winding stone-paved path, through a variety of vegetation including aloe and asphodel, and later pines and then palms. Our first view of La Laja village is with a beautiful backdrop of the domes of Los Roques, prominent striking rock formations that are a major feature of this part of the island. We descend into the valley, ascending on the other side and arrive to the village. We then continue along a quiet rural road following the valley to Chejelipes where we meet our bus and return to San Sebastian. Later we can explore the harbour and backstreets of the town. San Sebastian was Christopher Columbus' last stopping place before discovering the Americas, so there are several 'Columbus' sites that can be visited including the well where he drew water, his house, and the church where he prayed. In addition, San Sebastian has two beaches, a host of restaurants and bars, and narrow streets bursting with life. Our walk covers 12 kilometres over three and a half hours. We descend on stone-paved paths, unmade hillside paths and a rural road. The total ascent and descent is approximately +300m / -1000m.

Accommodation: Hotel Torre del Conde(or similar)

Day 3 - Walk from Vallehermoso to coastal town of Agulo

Our day starts with a drive to Vallehermoso in the north of the island. This peaceful small town is surrounded by steep hills, palm trees and dry zone vegetation and is the starting place for some of La Gomera's most beautiful hiking trails. We follow a trail passing Roque Cano (a distinctive rock feature of the area), terraced fields and banana plantations to the coastal town of Agulo. Agulo was one of the island's first towns and its colonial buildings, winding streets and position directly above the sea have led to it being known as one of La Gomera's most beautiful places. On a clear day the volcanic cone of El Teide on Tenerife dominates the horizon. We spend some time exploring the town or relaxing in one of the cafes before returning to San Sebastian for the evening. Today our walk covers 14 kilometres over approximately five hours. We walk on unmade hillside trails, unmade roads and a short distance on pavements. The total ascent and descent is approximately +900m / 850m.

Accommodation: Hotel Torre del Conde(or similar)

Single room available
Meals Provided: Breakfast
Day 4 - Explore cloud forest and ascend to Alto de Garajonay

Today we drive to Contadero (1350m) from where we begin our first walk, through Garajonay National Park. We start by ascending the island's highest peak, Alto de Garajonay (1484m), from where on a clear day we will have a splendid 360-degree view of the island. We then continue on the trail through the dense vegetation of the Laurisilva cloud forest, ancient Canaries' jungle only found on the Outer Canary Islands: La Gomera, Tenerife and La Palma. Later we reach the chapel of Nuestra Señora de Lourdes, and Barranco del Cedro a deep ravine surrounded by lush vegetation with a bubbling stream at the bottom. The trail then passes through the hamlets of El Cedro and Buenavista, from where we walk over the final hill to meet our bus and return to San Sebastian for the evening. Our walk covers 15 kilometres over approximately four and a half hours. The terrain is unmade paths. The total ascent and descent is +300m / -900m.

Day 5 - Walk to the black sand beach of Playa Caleta

This morning we drive to the northeast of the island to Hermigua for a walk down to Playa Caleta. Starting from the village we descend down through rugged terrain, banana plantations and a spectacular deep gorge. Playa Caleta has a volcanic black sand beach and the area is well known for its delicious fresh fish. From here we have the option to take a circular walk to Punta San Lorenzo (4km, 1 hour). Alternatively we can relax on the beach or in one of the local cafes, before meeting our bus and returning to San Sebastian. Today our main walk covers 11 kilometres over five hours. Again we are walking on unmade hillside paths. The total ascent and descent is approximately +650m/ -850m.

From the port of Los Cristianos we drive for approximately one hour to the Teide Plateau where we make a circular walk to Roques de Garcia. (Depending on the group and local conditions there may be an option for those wishing to, to take the tougher walk to Guajara Peak). Later we drive to El Medano and the coast for our last night. Our last walk covers four kilometres over two and a half hours. We walk on marked paths. The total ascent and descent is +100m / -100m.

Trip information

Country information

Spain Holidays & Tours

Climate

Overall, spring, early summer and autumn are ideal times for a Spanish trip - though the weather varies enormously from region to region. The high central plains suffer from fierce extremes, stiflingly hot in summer, bitterly cold and swept by freezing winds in winter. The Atlantic coast, in contrast, has a tendency to damp and mist, and a relatively brief, humid summer. The Mediterranean south is warm virtually all year round. Spain's Islands the Canaries and Balaerics experience very mild winters and warm summers making them ideal year round destinations.

Budgeting and packing

Optional activities

Walks - As some of the walks are optional, the cost of any local buses or taxis associated with these is not included but shared between the participants - allow €20 if you intend to do all the optional walks. - Cable Car at Teide NP €13.50 pp one way, €27.00 pp return journey

Clothing

Bring some lightweight clothing for pleasant, balmy days (including shorts for day walks), but remember that temperatures drop with altitude and that evenings may be cool so a warm sweater or fleece is essential. As mountain weather is changeable it is important to bring a waterproof and windproof outer garment.

Footwear

We recommend you bring walking boots with ankle support- leather or fabric are both fine. Make sure that your boots are worn-in and comfortable before the start of the trip. Also trainers or sandals for relaxing and general wear. We suggest that on international flights you either carry your walking boots in your hand luggage or wear them - should your luggage be lost or delayed, your own boots are the one thing that will be irreplaceable.

Luggage

20kg

Luggage: On tour

The allowance is one main piece of luggage and a daypack. Remember, you are expected to carry your own luggage between our transport and hotel - so don't overload yourself.

Equipment

Bring a water bottle, torch, sunhat, sunscreen and sunglasses. A trekking pole is recommended for the steep descents. On this trip we will have the opportunity for several picnic lunches so any equipment to assist in your preparations would be recommended. i.e Lunchbox and cutlery.

Tipping

Explore leader
At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Explore Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
Local crew
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognised part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. In order to make things easier for you, the Explore Leaders may organise a group's tips kitty and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour. Accordingly, you should allow approximately £15 for tipping.

If you are arriving on the same day the trip starts, and we have your arrival details then you will be provided with a free transfer. Once you have collected your baggage and cleared Immigration, please follow the 'taxi' signs from your arrival gate to 'Taxi Oficial Tenerife' at counter 9, located within the arrivals hall. Please give them your name and identify yourself as an Explore customer, they will arrange the next available transfer for you. Please be aware that as this is a shared transfer there might be a short wait, as may include other passengers arriving within an hour slot. If you have paid for a separate transfer, then this will be private. Your hotel room will normally be available from 1400 on the day of arrival, although sometimes not until 1500. We're unable to arrange an early check-in, so if you have booked your own flights that arrive in the very early hours, then we recommend booking an additional night's accommodation so that you can head straight to your room. Please look out for notices which your Explore Leader may have posted on notice boards or walls near reception or the entrance
