La Gomera Holidays

La Gomera, the second smallest of the 7 Canary Islands, is where nature reveals herself most splendidly. A natural playground with hamlets, footpaths and secret spots, La Gomera screams adventure and excitement. Of stunning volcanic landscape with impossible ecological value, this island is also one of history, of rural traditions preserved through posterity, and unforgettable charm.

La Gomera’s highest peak, the Garanonay stands nearly 5000 feet. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986, the Garajonay National Park is an invaluable patch of dense forest covered in thick clouds. Rugged slopes interrupted by crisscrossed paths sport delightful challenge for professional hikers, as also for visitors partial to adventure. Misty and cool, this laurel woodland appears straight off the pages of fantasy.

 

A welcoming contrast is La Gomera’s sun-baked sea beaches and their jutting cliffs resplendent in sunshine. The most magnificent and awe-inspiring of these is the Los Organos lava cliff and its gigantic pipe formations resulting from wind and water erosion. This stunning natural structure plunges deep to create amazing underwater landscapes.
