A panorama with a sea view emerges between the palm trees

Christopher Columbus already stopped off on La Gomera on his voyages to the New Continent. Today, the island is a mecca for modern hikers. There are not many places in the world that have such a rich and valuable natural ecosystem in such a small area. With its volcanic origins, La Gomera is characterized by a deep ravine system that leads along winding paths to the villages and hamlets and ends in the sea. On this hiking tour, you will experience the enormous biodiversity of the island. Laurel forests, huge palm groves and traditional agriculture are just part of it. On the numerous hiking trails, you will cross the diverse landscapes of La Gomera and discover the highlights of the island. Let yourself be enchanted by the magic of La Gomera!

Day
01
Arrival in San Sebastián

In the morning, a transfer takes you to the Alto del Contadero. There you follow the PR LG 3 trail through dense laurel forests and a magical plant world. The trail descends steadily through a mystical jungle with moss-covered trees and giant ferns. In El Cedro, a hamlet with just 7 houses, you can stop off at the Las Vistas restaurant and then descend to Hermigua. This agricultural village has a reputation for having the best climate in the world.

Today's stage starts in one of the most impressive villages on La Gomera. The picturesque Agulo was named one of the 11 most beautiful villages in Spain in 2011. Ascent over the cliffs of Agulo to the Mirador de Abrante, a spectacular, overhanging viewpoint with views of the Pico del Teide. Through a rural area to the highest point of Cruz del Tierno. The descent then begins to the Roque Cano monolith, the landmark of Vallehermoso. A bus will take you back to the hotel.

Today's starting point is Las Hayas. Your route then takes you to Arure, where you will experience a spectacular descent through the palm grove of the Valle Gran Rey. In the upper part of the gorge, you will discover numerous herds of goats grazing peacefully in their enclosures. The further you hike down, the more small houses line up, creating an idyllic scenery that finally ends at the sea in La Calera. Small alleyways lead you through the former fishing village to Playa del Inglés, where you can take a refreshing dip after your hike.

From Valle Gran Rey, you start your hike up the gorge to the bohemian village of El Guro, where residents from all over Europe have made their home. Scenic slopes and imposing basalt walls accompany you to the Barranco de Arure. You follow the course of the stream and climb up the narrow gorge. The path winds its way from rock to rock until you reach an impressive waterfall. Return along the same river to Casa de la Seda and then downhill towards Valle Gran Rey.

After a cab transfer to Las Hayas, you hike northwards through the Garajonay National Park. The imposing laurel forests form a magical backdrop reminiscent of prehistoric times. The route gradually descends and you cross the Barranco de la Cuesta. After passing the Ermita del Carmen, the first cultivated areas with vineyards and fruit trees appear. You then circle the La Encantadora reservoir, which supplies the entire north of the island with water. Enjoy the rural idyll with its stone houses until you reach Vallehermoso.

From the village of Imada, your hiking stage on the PR LG 16.1. takes you across several gorges to El Azadoe. Through a landscape rich in palm trees, you will master the ascent to the deserted village of Benchijigua and on to the foot of the Roque Agando. At an altitude of over 1200 meters, this phenomenal basalt rock monolith rises majestically in the middle of the island and forms the crowning glory of this hike.
