The island of El Hierro is one of the wonderful natural treasures our planet has to offer. An idyllic hiker’s paradise with varied vegetation, volcanoes, hills, it has been declared an Atlantic Biosphere Reserve. An Eden where we can walk through different climatic zones on a single route.
The coasts, the picturesque villages and the magnificent sunsets offer unique postcard motifs.
Lush forests of tree heath and gale trees, laurel forests, through which the cool trade winds pass with enough moisture to create a green oasis.
The starry sky over El Hierro, the vastness, the tranquillity and the scenic contrasts are further characteristics of this small island in the Atlantic. The hospitality of the inhabitants gives us a feeling of security.
Old hiking trails lead us across the changing geography of El Hierro. Beautiful panoramas over the island await us on the edge of the gulf crater, certainly one of the highlights on our trip and a moment that will remain in our memories.
