La Gomera, Canarias

Description

La GomeraLa Gomera is one of the most popular hiking destinations of the Canary Islands. It is the second smallest of the seven Canary Islands, and relatively green and lush. The Garajonay nature park conserves the fine wet laurel rain forests, almost permanently shrouded in clouds. The mountain with the same name Garajonay, 1487 m, can be climbed easily. Due to the trade winds, the north coast is much wetter than the south coast. Erosion of the volcanic soil has produced steep ravines called barrancos.

Due to the rugged nature of the terrain hiking is not easy, but on the other hand an abundance of paths have been marked, offering the hiker a varied menu. These trails include the two GR's on the island, GR131 and GR132. The first one ventures into the forested centre of the island. The second one describes a circle. Several local routes explore the rain forests and the barrancas.

Guidebooks exist to help you choose the best trails. Getting there is possible via big brother Tenerife, by a connecting flight or boat.
