    With each stride, hikers traverse landscapes that defy imagination. The La Gomera senderismo ancient laurel forests of Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, stand as sentinels of a bygone era, where prehistoric flora reigns supreme. Moss-draped branches, adorned with dew-kissed leaves, create a mystical canopy under which time itself seems to stand still.

    Venturing further, the island unveils its dramatic topography—a playground of soaring cliffs and deep ravines. As intrepid explorers conquer the challenging trails, they are rewarded with breathtaking vistas that stretch to the horizon. Volcanic peaks, their rugged silhouettes crowned by wisps of clouds, command attention, their majestic presence an ode to the island’s fiery past.

      Roque Agando La Gomera Degollada de Peraza - Roque Agando

      The Degollada de Peraza, 20 minutes by car from San Sebastián, is a narrow pass through the edge of two mountains and the starting point of the first route in La Gomera.
      The signs of the PR LG 17 indicate the direction towards the beautiful village of La Laja, nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by palm trees. The winding path zigzags all the way to the bottom between terraces and ruins. After crossing the hamlet of La Laja, leaving behind some terraced orchards, it continues an imposing climb with beautiful views of different volcanic rocks that dot the landscape.
      The Roque Agando, undoubtedly the most spectacular of them all, rises majestically in front of a path that continues in a relentless ascent. After reaching its base next to the viewpoint, we find the junction with the GR131 path. The path runs towards San Sebastián de La Gomera and takes us back to the place where the car was parked.

      La Gomera Parque nacional Garajonay Laguna Grande - Alto de Garajonay

      The cloud forest hike on La Gomera begins in the Laguna Grande recreation area. It runs along paths amidst the green laurel vegetation with ferns and endemic plants. Our way leads us to the highest point of the island, Mount Garajonay with 1487 m.

      From here we enjoy a wonderful view over the island and also see the neighboring islands of Tenerife, La Palma and El Hierro.

      After this impressive view, our path runs along a forest road with constant ups and downs and wonderful views again and again until we reach the Laguna Grande.

      There is also a good restaurant with typical Canarian cuisine to strengthen yourself after the tour.

      La Gomera walking holidays La Meseta - Hermigua

      From the Barranco de Monteforte ravine, next to the road, the El Cedro path ascends towards the Mirador de El Bailadero viewpoint. From there we cross to El Cedro through a hydraulic tunnel.
      El Cedro is a beautiful hamlet, a reminder of the old villages that lived from the resources of the mountain. El Cedro is situated on a small plateau, on the edge of the Garajonay National Park. The place deserves a small and the Restaurant Las Vistas is the ideal place to recharge your batteries.
      Now continues a steep descent towards Hermigua, passing by three waterfalls. The biggest and most spectacular is undoubtedly Los Chorros del Cedro. It is a waterfall of more than 150 metres high, observable from the viewpoint of El Chorro, which was once used to generate electricity in Hermigua.
      When reaching Hermigua appear the twin rocks of Pedro and Petra, magical sharp rock formations, surrounded by palm groves and in an extremely photogenic environment.

      La Gomera senderos por Garajonay GR131 Agulo - Mirador de Abrantes

      Today's route begins in the most unique village of La Gomera: Agulo. With superb views towards the island of Tenerife and its Pico del Teide, this picturesque village enjoys the honour of having been selected as one of the 11 most beautiful villages in Spain in 2021 and the most beautiful by The Times in 2024.
      From its small square, it is worth taking a short walk through its winding streets before tackling the ascent to the Mirador de Abrantes.
      The path crosses the road leaving the urban centre behind and starts the zigzagging towards the edge of the cliff that, forming a semicircle, protects the beautiful village.
      Reached the top, we find the spectacular glazed viewpoint floating in the void and offering vertiginous views. From there, the path goes down towards the sea and returns to Agulo by the north face.

      La Gomera con vista al Teide Alojera - Puerto del Trigo

      The northwest of La Gomera has a wild beauty. Its landscapes are rugged and are usually lashed by the trade winds. Nature shows there its most inhospitable and attractive face at the same time.
      It is in this environment that today we approach the route from Alojera to Puerto del Trigo. A path that in its course shows us the life of the locals among splendid views to the ocean.
      Alojera is a tiny village hanging in front of spectacular cliffs. The road crosses the houses on its way down to the coast. Puerto del Trigo, in the past an indispensable wharf for the transport of goods to the capital, is nowadays a refuge for fishermen and a must for those who are looking for the essence of La Gomera.
      The path ascends again by the opposite side of the ravine and continues offering perspectives of singular beauty of the whole north coast of La Gomera.

      TOUR LOCATION

      Walking the trails of La Gomera is a unique and unrepeatable experience in any other destination in the world. Time has frozen the island's relief to give us an eternal, marvellous and unforgettable landscape. A sea of clouds formed by the thermal shock between the warm oceanic waters and the freshness of the Gomeran valleys preserves the majesty of the island. This natural dome envelops a paradise that has remained intact for millions of years and that today we can walk through to marvel at its splendour.
