A jewel of nature. This is how you will define this island when you return home. Your imagination will have to strain to describe the landscapes, especially the lush forest made up of species that disappeared millions of years ago in other parts of the planet, but which, to your delight, survived on this island.
La Gomera awaits you to discover its great treasure, the Garajonay, which is a National Park and World Heritage Site: a dense forest of great abundance of flowers and ghostly appearance, with a multitude of extinct species and quiet springs, definitely the ideal place for hiking enthusiasts.
You will also be surprised by the rugged landscape, with deep gorges plunging into the sea. A landscape shaped over centuries by erosion after two million years of no volcanic eruptions. You will also enjoy green, palm-covered valleys, charming rural hamlets, impressive cliffs, inviting black sand coves lapped by crystal clear waters …
On La Gomera you will find practically untouched nature, in which the hand of man has intervened to create agricultural landscapes of great beauty. You will be surprised by the cultivated terraces arranged on the steep slopes and appreciate the great effort with which the farmers have worked them.
You will be pleased to learn that the island has implemented the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism, an initiative based on protecting natural areas and providing quality services.
