ABOUT THE GUANCHES

The Guanches were the ancient inhabitants of the Canary Islands until the arrival of the Spaniards. The Guanche population is of Berber origin and it is assumed that they arrived on the islands around 1800 years ago. They developed differently on each island, so they have been given different names depending on the island: Benahoritas on La Palma; Bimbaches on El Hierro; Guanches on Tenerife and La Gomera…

But their way of life and customs were similar: they lived by herding, berry picking and local fishing. They lived in caves and did not know how to use metals. They did not sail, so there was no interaction between the tribes on the different islands.

In their journeys on foot with their herds, they used paths and trails previously marked by the animals. They used these trails to reach places suitable for grazing, crossed deep ravines and maintained relations with the various menceyatos of each island.

Today these trails are for the enjoyment of contemporary hikers and have technical designations such as GR 130 or GR 131. But we, in homage to those hardened hikers of the past, prefer to call them…

         San Sebastián - Mirador de Los Roques

        From San Sebastián Beach, the GR 131 leaves the city behind to enter the Tajinastes Ravine. Little by little the path ascends along a side of endless abandoned terraces.


        After reaching the Degollada de Peraza, the path advances towards the summit, passing the Hermitage of Nuestra Señora de Las Nieves and entering the leafy forest mass.

        Now the first of the spectacular rocks appears on the left: the Roque de Agando, a colossus of basaltic stone standing between two deep ravines. A little further on we reach the Mirador de Los Roques from where we can enjoy beautiful views of the Pico del Teide, the extensive sea of ​​clouds that expands over La Gomera and the different rocks: Ojila and Agando. Return to San Sebastián by regular bus, line 1 or 3.

        After a brief transfer, I return to the Mirador de Los Roques to resume the GR 131 in the direction of Las Hayas. But first the ascent to the highest point of La Gomera is necessary: ​​the summit of Garajonay, with an altitude of 1,487 meters.


        With a 360-degree view, the summit of Garajonay reveals the immense green blanket that covers the entire island and that today constitutes the Garajonay National Park.
        Now the path descends towards Igualero, bordering the Park to the south. At the Mirador of the same name we will enjoy extraordinary views of Playa Santiago. And through the Barranco de Erque the route takes us first to Chipude and finally to Las Hayas, after crossing the Barranco del Agua.

        El Jardín de Las Hayas is an austere but pleasant inn created by the descendants of Doña Efigenia. This cheerful nonagenarian was the precursor of a famous inn where the best stews on the island were tasted.

        Today's stage crosses the heart of the Garajonay National Park, on a route that enters permanent fog and extreme vegetation. Upon reaching the north face, the GR 131 trail begins its descent through the Barranco de La Cuesta towards Vallehermoso.

        The road is dotted with rural homes and small orchards until it reaches the La Encantadora Dam. The path surrounds it and suddenly the vision of Roque Cano appears, a gigantic monolith located at the foot of Vallehermoso.
        As its name suggests, Vallehermoso is an idyllic and sunny enclave that exudes peace and tranquility. It is the end point of the GR 131. The valley that gives its name to this town flows into the sea where a Callao beach opens up with views of La Palma. An ideal corner to regain strength, before tackling the last two stages of the Camino del Guanche.

        Subject to availability:

        HOTEL TORRE DEL CONDE

        In the capital of La Gomera, San Sebastian, this hotel is located in front of a beautiful park where we find the historic Torre del Conde. In the area surrounding the hotel, a swarm of pedestrian streets offer an interesting range of gastronomic and leisure activities. The historic centre of the city offers old buildings that reflect the time when Christopher Columbus visited the island on his voyage to the New World.

        The rooms enjoy views of the park; they are well equipped for the enjoyment of two nights in La Gomera and enjoy all the necessary tranquillity, despite the hustle and bustle of the city.

        The hotel cafeteria is located on the ground floor for breakfast.

        JARDIN DE LAS HAYAS

        The legendary Doña Efigenia was the forerunner of this rural accommodation. Today, her descendants have lovingly equipped it, offering idyllic overnight stays while following the gastronomic trajectory of the centenarian Efigenia. Several cottages make up this small complex in a romantic setting.

         

        Simple but exquisitely decorated rooms, reflecting the rural style of La Gomera. In a garden setting where carefully tended plants and flowers live up to their name: Jardín de Las Hayas.

        And don't forget to try the ‘almogrote’, a spread made from fresh cheese and spicy red mojo sauce that has brought well-deserved fame to its original creator: Doña Efigenia.

        HOTEL RURAL TRIANA

        Vallehermoso, in the sunny northwest of La Gomera, is the location of this small rural hotel with 11 rooms. The building was an old manor house that has been carefully restored. It has adequate and comfortable facilities and a cafeteria in the pedestrian area.

         

         

        Warm wooden floors and carefully decorated rooms create the ambience in every room. Vallehermoso, with a population of just 3,000, is a haven of peace in a beautiful, sunny valley. The municipality is located just over 150 metres above the sea and enjoys a pleasant climate all year round.

Using hiking poles is highly recommended.

        The program is suitable for single travelers, although it is subject to an additional charge.
