La Gomera is the second smallest island of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, which also includes La Palma, El Hierro, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. La Gomera is a real gem and will present an almost prehistoric and magical, but also contrasting landscape.
The north is a true natural paradise; the colorful lush vegetation grows in this fertile region. The National Park Garajonay in the middle of the island, leads you to the beauty of nature in mind and is also an oasis of tranquility. It is home to the world’s greatest laurel forest, the evergreen cloud forest as well as a crater chain of extinct volcanoes. The latter forms the southern border of the weather, which shows the island of La Gomera from its rather meager side. La Gomera is less of a resort island, but has enjoyed popularity especially among nature lovers, hiking enthusiasts and holidaymakers. Their trips take their starting point in the well developed tourist resorts of San Sebastian, Hermigua or Playa de Santiago, which all have small shops, bars and restaurants that invite to stroll, browse and linger. The discovery tours lead to, among other things Garajonay National Park, the southeast and reaching to the sea, Valle Gran Rey, an impressive and fertile valley with countless terraces, or you’re traveling to the Los Organos on the north coast of La Gomera, which are volcanic vents sticking out like a wall of pipes from the sea. In addition, there are many other nature reserves and natural monuments, which will create the magic of nature. On many small paths one can walk past rivers, isolated hamlets, each with deep gorges and waterfalls and fertile valleys.
