Walking in La Gomera

Discover the botanical paradise of La Gomera on foot. La Gomera, the greenest of the Canary Islands, lies just 30 km off the coast of Tenerife, but is a world away in terms of atmosphere and landscape. Steep cliffs along the rocky coastline give way to volcanic peaks inland and deep gorges, or barrancos, limit access to many parts of the island. 

La Gomera's greatest treasures are found in the National Park Garajonay, among the dense vegetation of its mysterious laurel woods, where centuries-old trees clothed in moss give the impression of a tropical rain forest. In the valleys terraced landscapes of banana, papaya and mango trees are equally beautiful. The rugged coast of steep cliffs and small coves are another delight.
