    Discover La Gomera walking

    Hiking en La Gomera

    Protected by its steep cliffs and guarded by its enormous rocks, La Gomera stands as one of the best-kept natural treasures of the Canary Archipelago. A biosphere reserve, its 370 square kilometres contain some of the greatest biological diversity in the Atlantic, and its forests have been catalogued as living relics of the Earth from before the ice age.

    The Gomeros consider themselves to be the oldest people in the archipelago and pride themselves on living on an island that has never been conquered. This strength of character can be felt in the “silbo gomero” or in their strong traditions that give the island an atmosphere of freedom that is unique in the world. Formed by underwater volcanic eruptions, La Gomera has a perfect orography for hiking and adventure in nature. Its reliefs, valleys and ravines rise up to give hikers a beautiful, challenging landscape that allows them to have one of the most beautiful experiences in the world.

    Hiking in La Gomera around the island through its relief allows us to enter a gr 131 La Gomera Parque nacional Garajonay landscape that seems to have been
    that seems to have been frozen in stone and gives us a sensory experience that reconnects us with nature. The natural parks of La Gomera have a rich diversity of terrains and microclimates that are a paradise for hiking. An untamed land that has remained untouched for millions of years to give us memorable moments.

    We can witness first-hand the sea of clouds that covers the island, an impressive natural spectacle that makes La Gomera one of the most popular hiking spots in the world.

      La Gomera walking holidays Garajonay National Park: Alto del Contadero - Hermigua

      From the Alto del Contadero, the PR LG 3 trail takes you through dense laurel forests with vegetation typical of the Tertiary Era and envelops you in a magical-looking plant world. The trail descends steadily through twisted trunks and giant ferns until you reach El Cedro, a village of just 7 houses nestled in the laurel forest. After the obligatory break and socialising with other hikers in the Las Vistas Restaurant, the descent continues along the Barranco del Cedro ravine, ending in Hermigua, a northern village with an agricultural tradition that boasts "the best climate in the world".

      La Gomera Agulo GR132 - Hermigua - Vallehermoso

      We now follow the route of the GR132, from Hermigua to Vallehermoso, crossing "all that north" on foot. A route that introduces you to the day-to-day life of rural Gomera and offers spectacular views towards the neighbouring islands of Tenerife and La Palma. The GR132 first looks for the beach of callao de Hermigua and then climbs progressively towards Agulo, an idyllic little village that lives outside the tourist development of the south of La Gomera. The climb up the Agulo ridge takes you to the Mirador de Abrante, an impressive overhanging viewpoint with breathtaking views of the Pico del Teide. After reaching the highest point at Cruz del Tierno, the trail begins a relentless descent to the foot of Roque Cano, a spectacular monolith and unique icon of Vallehermoso.

      La Gomera Valle Gran Rey hiking trips Las Hayas - Valle Gran Rey

      After a 40-minute drive to Las Hayas, an enclave of houses near the National Park famous for the stews of the legendary "Doña Efigenia", the pathe leads to Arure and begins a spectacular descent through the palm grove of Valle Gran Rey. The upper part of the ravine is full of herds of goats, grazing peacefully in their protected enclosures. And as you go further down, the little houses are interspersed, forming an idyllic setting that ends next to the sea, in La Calera. Valle Gran Rey was a stronghold of the Guanches in ancient times. Later it was the hippies who found their paradise in the valley. Today structured tourism has invaded the coastal areas, although a stroll through the narrow streets of La Calera brings back that feeling of the authentic flavour of a fishermen's neighbourhood. ...And in the Playa del Inglés you can enjoy a refreshing swim after your route through the south.
