The tranquillity of La Gomera is what sets it apart from the busier and more popular Canary Islands. This island is less touristy than its neighbours, and thanks to its natural beauty and diverse terrain, it is an incredible place to discover on your walking holiday.
Even the island’s capital, San Sebastián de La Gomera, operates at a relaxed pace. Famous for being a stop on Christopher Columbus’ way to the New World, it provides a wonderful place to start your exploration.
Uncover traditional Canarian ‘white villages’, home to structures made entirely of white stone, as well as a wide range of wildlife unique to La Gomera. From pine forests to tall mountains and dramatic clifftops, rambling on this island makes for a diverse and memorable experience, as you take in a magnificent variety of scenery.
Nature lovers cannot afford to miss paying a visit to Garajonay National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a densely forested area, offering excellent opportunities for walking and the chance to admire unforgettable views of both the seascapes and the valleys.
An abundance of flora and fauna surrounds you on your treks, and many plants are endemic to La Gomera. You’ll spot a variety of animal species, too; just keep an eye out for the island’s famous ‘giant lizard’.
