The Island

Walking in La Gomera Spain

La Gomera, located in the Canary Islands 35 minutes by fast ferry from Tenerife, remains beautifully unspoilt and is a walker’s delight. Measuring the equivalent of just 20 miles by 20 miles yet packed with a variety of walks it is a tiny, friendly island with charming, rural villages and a handful of small coastal towns.

The sparse population is still predominately engaged in agriculture. The sun drenched south at first appears parched and barren but the explorer soon finds hidden valleys laden with produce, delightful palm groves, pockets of pine and isolated beaches.

The more rugged north is typified by narrow ravines with green hillsides patched in scrub and capped with woodland. Garajonay, the highest peak, stands in an extensive Natural Park famed scientifically for its amazing cloud forest housing flora and fauna unique to the area.

The Walking

Walking La Gomera Spain

The many and varied natural features found in close proximity on this small island make it an attractive destination for all walkers.

There are opportunities to explore the deep ravines where palm trees intertwine with terraced gardens; to follow mountain ridge paths; to visit remote waterfalls; to follow the winding course of a barranco in the shadow of a volcanic dome; to traverse cliff faces with fine views to the horizon; to experience the special world of the lush forests of the Natural Park.

Guided - Independent Holidays

La Gomera WalkingYou will be led by a guide who believes in our philosophy that walking is to be enjoyed not endured.

We provide 4 walks per week which range between easy & moderate and are chosen to enable you to enjoy the island’s superb landscape without hard toil.

You can take additional walks on your ‘days off’. We will either collect you from your hotel (Gran Rey) or a 5 minutes' walk away (Playa Calera) or a taxi will collect you (Parador) and take you to the beginning of each walk and we will return you to your hotel. If staying at the Parador and you have a hire car you can meet the guide in Valle Gran Rey and reduce the cost of the guided walks.

Average climbs and descents are about 500m, average distance is 8½ miles and average walking times 4½ hours. You are likely to be part of a cosmopolitan group of walkers and will be guided by an experienced guide who will know the paths of Gomera well. These holidays are available throughout the year.

Self-Guided

Walking in La Gomera

Available year round utilising our exclusive Walk Booklet containing routes which recently have been walked by a New Experience team member.

We give full directional notes average walking times and distances the extent of ascents and descents and points of interest.

There is a selection of easy moderate and challenging walks. Car hire is recommended but not essential as the bus service is not very walker friendly on La Gomera. A number of walks will require car or taxi access. Car hire can be arranged for a week in advance, or arranged locally, please note there is sometimes a shortage of cars on the island.
