La Gomera(Island)



  • Hiking in the northern part of La Gomera

The second smallest island in the Canary Islands –barely 20 km from north to south– is known by many as the 'magic island'. Peaceful and beautiful, its beaches and coves have mainly black sand and crystal clear waters.Read more...

In addition to the small patches of sand nestling between the cliffs, La Gomera is a genuine paradise for nature lovers because of its mountainous landscape and stark contrasts. In just a few kilometres it changes from palm-cloaked valleys to deep gorges. If you follow any of its footpaths you'll soon see why the UNESCO has declared it a Biosphere Reserve. A particular highlight is the Garajonay National Park, a vast unspoilt rainforest with a dense vegetation of laurisilva trees where you'll find yourself standing above the clouds overlooking what is known as the 'sea of clouds'. This atmospheric phenomenon caused by the winds from the sea means you'll often find yourself with clouds below your feet. The island also has a large number of gorges, and if you take a boat trip you can see the natural monument known as 'Los Órganos', a cliff shaped like an organ with what look like huge pipes. This tour is a good opportunity to visit the whale spotting area. Among its most curious traditions is the 'silbo gomero', a system of communication unique to the island in which the syllables are spelt out by means of whistles. If you have the chance, be sure to attend one of the exhibitions and competitions that take place here.
