The excursion starts when we finish the pick up. With an official guide we depart from the port of Los Cristianos in Tenerife South on board the Fred Olsen ferry to San Sebastian de La Gomera, the capital of the island.
From the port we head towards the center of the island discovering how the bio-climatic steps change from dry to humid.
In the first stop we will stop in the area of the ancient super volcanoes to discover one of the most emblematic areas of La Gomera “el Roque de Agando“, an impressive volcanic formation along with the other rocks, where we will also observe the phenomenon of horizontal rain.
On entering the Garajonay National Park we will discover, surrounded by vegetation, the Laurisilva ecosystem, an ancient subtropical forest that existed when dinosaurs ruled the world.
We will continue our tour outside the National Park in the rural area of Chipude where we will have time to taste some typical products of La Gomera and visit the church of Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, “one of the most important of the island”.
Once on the bus we will arrive at El Cercado where we will visit the typical pottery museum, where women continue to keep alive a tradition of more than 500 years.
Finally we will arrive at the viewpoint of Valle Gran Rey to admire one of the most beautiful canyons of La Gomera.
We will resume our tour passing through the village of Las Hayas to return inside the park and make a stop at Laguna Grande, where we will have time for lunch in a typical Gomeran restaurant (lunch not included).
At lunch you will have the opportunity to experience the “silbo gomero” (unique whistled language in the archipelago). At the end we will walk along a circular path to see the laurel forest up close.
The next stop will be at the visitor center “Juegos de bola” to visit the house of memory and even taste typical La Gomera cookies made with gofio.
Finally, we will return to San Sebastian, passing through the northern towns of Agulo and Hermigua, enjoying the beautiful scenery. In the capital we will have free time to visit historical buildings linked to the passage of Christopher Columbus before his departure to the American continent, such as the Torre del Conde or La Casa de Colón.
