Walking El Hierro HIGHLIGHTS
In the middle of the vast ocean, emerging like a hidden treasure, lies the island of El Hierro. It is a place where nature unfolds in all its splendour, weaving a mantle of beauty and mystery that captivates the senses and fires the imagination.
Its rugged coastline rises majestically, defying the raging sea that surrounds it. Imposing cliffs rise up to the sky, silent witnesses to the eternal struggle between man and nature. On its dark sandy beaches, the murmur of the ocean merges with the wind, creating a symphony of sounds that caress the soul.
In the interior of the island, a green tapestry stretches out in all directions. Laurisilva forests, ancient and wise, harbour countless secrets in their thicket. Its trees whisper millenary stories, and every step is an encounter with life in its purest state. El Hierro is a symphony of colours: the vibrant green of the vegetation, the deep blue of the ocean and the greyish of the volcanic rocks that bear witness to its origin.
But beyond its breathtaking scenery, El Hierro is a haven of peace.
The calm rhythm of its villages and the hospitality of its people envelop you in a warm embrace. In every corner, you can breathe the authenticity and tradition rooted in its history. Its cobbled streets invite you to lose time, to savour every moment and to discover the essence of the island.
El Hierro is a place where time seems to stand still. It is a sanctuary for those seeking a refuge from the hustle and bustle and stress of the modern world. Here, nature and man coexist in perfect harmony, reminding us that we are just a small part of a much larger whole.
In short, the island of El Hierro is a poem written by the wind, carved by the waves and painted by the sun. It is a place where magic becomes tangible and where the adventurous spirit finds its home. Immerse yourself in its landscapes, listen to its melody and let yourself be captivated by its indomitable charm.

The Water tour & Garoé TreeThe island of El Hierro reflects its history through water. Its past, present and future.

Camino de Jinama wayAlso known as the "Ruta de las Mudadas", not because of the absence of speech but because of the changes of residence that the peasants made in the past on a temporary basis (they moved from one side of the island to the other using this route).

This is a small family hotel located in the capital of the island, Valverde. It has a simple but comfortable appearance and is run by a friendly staff, who take great care of their guests, going out of their way to attend to their every need. Valverde, with a population of barely 5,000 inhabitants, is a quiet urban centre situated 600 metres above the sea on the eastern side of the island.
With only 17 well-appointed rooms, the Boomerang Hotel offers basic breakfast services in a cafeteria attached to the hotel.
All rooms have a private bathroom and television.
The setting is ideal for tackling the first route and enjoying a quiet urban atmosphere in the heart of El Hierro.
In the heart of El Golfo, on the north side of El Hierro, we find the quiet village of Los Llanillos, where the small Hotel Geko is located. It is a tiny but charming accommodation.
Its rooms, with wooden floors and ceilings in the purest traditional style, offer warmth and comfort in a family atmosphere. The proximity of the sea is omnipresent from every corner of the establishment.
The cave that was once a wine cellar has now been converted into a pleasant dining room for the hotel's guests. However, the usual setting for breakfast is the outdoor terrace.
HOTEL LUA BOUTIQUE
Located in the sunny municipality of El Pinar, this charming little boutique hotel is housed in a small building of modern construction.
With minimalist details and Bauhaus style, the Hotel Lua Boutique offers a pleasant environment and is strategically located for the last two routes of El Hierro HIGHLIGHTS.
A large roof terrace with uninterrupted views of the ocean serves as a place for breakfast, a place to relax and enjoy the sun, or at night to watch the stars twinkle in the dark and marvellous Herreño sky.
The rooms are decorated in a flirtatious and well-equipped style, with a mixture of styles that provide warmth and comfort. El Pinar, located 800 metres above the sea and just a few steps from La Restinga, is the ideal place to explore the southern part of the island.
PARADOR DE EL HIERRO
This unique accommodation is located in a modern building, facing an endless ocean. The Parador de El Hierro is a sober hotel that incorporates elements typical of the Herreño style, including wooden floors and ceilings.
The marvellous setting of Las Playas is located under spectacular cliffs on the eastern side of El Hierro. An ideal place to relax after a week of activity, walking around the island.
All the rooms offer an excellent view of the sea, with modern equipment and attention to detail, not without elegance and comfort. An extraordinary setting that invites you to extend your stay after the last route of this programme.
