La Gomera was made for the hiker. It was made for anyone who wants to immerse himself in the lush forests, the breathtaking ravines, and the green valleys. For anyone who wants to discover, with each step, exceptional landscapes, landscapes that take us back to other times. Landscapes sculpted by the sea, such as its steep and massive cliffs, or aged by the passing of centuries, as in the Garajonay National Park.
A vestige of the Tertiary period, nothing less, Garajonay is a forest where one can become acquainted with the history of the world. Prehistoric vegetation, nurtured by the water of its many springs, awaiting the travellers who enter the magic of its soul. Declared by UNESCO as the Property of Humanity, any route is good for exploring the attractive features of this National Park. But there's more.
On the island, a veritable paradise for the visitor who is looking for peace and quiet on his holidays, there is an abundance of paths and tracks, which takes them, over its intricate terrain, through small villages, ravines or terraced agricultural land, a product of the noble effort of the Gomeran people.
Palm tree covered valleys embracing small but attractive beaches or the incredible image of Mount Teide, lying majestically in the distance, on the neighbouring island of Tenerife - could be a perfect ending for an unforgettable excursion.
The Magic Island, as La Gomera is called, with its rough yet serene landscape, wild yet peaceful, is full of surprising treasures for visitors. Anyone who has time will also have the opportunity to get to know the special whistling language silbo, that the island's inhabitants have user for centuries to solve the communication problems inherent to a land of such mountainous distances.
