Garajonay National Park


If you want to indulge in a little 'time travel' and walk through jungles that are millions of years old, this is the place for you. The explanation is simple: Garajonay is home to the world's finest example of laurisilva forest, a genuine relic of the Tertiary era. On your visit to La Gomera (an island with volcanic origins), when you're in the National Park, you may suddenly find yourself wrapped in a mysterious mist. You're in luck. These are caused by the Alyssian winds and transform the park into a place of magic. What animals can you find there? Garajonay is home to animal and plant species that can only be seen there. It has 150 native species of fauna. Have you ever seen a forest bat? What's on offer in the park? To get to La Gomera, take a boat from the port of Los Cristianos (in the south of the neighbouring island of Tenerife). Once in the park, you can follow any of the self-guided footpaths or take a free route led by a guide (requires advance reservations). A word of advice: don't miss the observation points with views over the Agando and Ojila rocks.
