La Gomera Excursions
6 guided walks in a program of 8 days
La Gomera has become the preferred island by travellers. The old volcanism and the erosion have left massive “pitones” of traquitic and basaltic volcanic rocks, winding footpaths and deep precipices separated by large “mesas”. In addition exuberant vegetation in the forests of laurisilva next to more barren plants in the zones protected of the trade winds.
- Hike in changing landscapes on La Gomera and Tenerife every day.
- Explore the World Heritage Laurisilva forest in the centre of La Gomera
- Taste local dishes in daily changing restaurants.
- Lodge in a sympathetic Pension in La Gomeras capital San Sebastian
