- The trip is ideal if you like fairly strenuous hiking , and quiet evenings. The capital of La Gomera is small but has some very good restaurants, and is a pleasant place in which to stay for five nights. The hikes themselves offer some panoramic views, including that of Mount Teide, on Tenerife, on a clear day, some thirty miles in the distance. The first and last days of the trip are spent on Tenerife, with some excellent hiking at the base of Teide.
All in all, La Gomera is a pleasant place in which to avoid"mass tourism".
