The first trip to America from La Gomera

About the destination

La Gomera is a World Biosphere Reserve Island of volcanic origin located in the Canary archipelago. The absence of eruptive activity for the last 2 million years and a climate that favours water erosion have created a craggy relief driven by deep gullies and overshadowed by impressive volcanic domes, known as Roques

The Garajonay National Park is one of the gems of the island and most of the surface is covered by an evergreen forest, quite a contrast in a predominantly arid island. These laurel forests are a relic of the past, conserving part of the flora typical of the forests that populated the Mediterranean region millions of years ago, and that have since vanished from the continent as a result of climatic changes and human influence.

One of the peculiarities of the island’s landscape are the steep hill agricultural terraces created to provide level space for cultivation. In addition, the island is bursting with biodiversity and endemic wildlife. The coastal waters of La Gomera are one of the best places in the world to enjoy responsible whale and dolphin watching.

Ecotourism experiences

La Gomera Biosphere Reserve will take you to a subtropical jungle in the heart of the Garajonay National Park, a complete contrast to the aridity of the volcanic island, its hills and valleys. With your ecotourism guide, you will be able to discover the incredible Laurisilva forests and learn about its formation, uniqueness and the importance of these last remaining forests in the world. 

La Gomera is also a synonym of gastronomy and you can find exquisite local gastronomy in the restaurants and as part of your ecotourism experiences. What about enjoying a stunning sunset with a picnic of carefully picked local produce? Or maybe you fancy lunch in the heart of the forest, La Laguna Grande, an open circular place where, according to the island´s legend, witches held their ceremonies? Our partners in La Gomera have your wishes covered.
