If you do arrive earlier we can arrange for you to wait at the Port or a near by beach rather than at the airport. A taxi from the airport to the beach will cost between 10 euros and 35 euros depending on numbers of people.

If you arrive after the 14.30 group transfer you can book a later ferry and we can arrange a taxi to meet you in La Gomera for an additional cost.

DETAILS

La Gomera is the second smallest of the main islands in Spain’s Canary Islands. It is known for its volcanic mountains and hiking trails that crisscross the islands taking you to hidden places. There are ocean views all around as the island is located in the Atlantic Ocean. La Gomera is the destination if you are looking for peace and quiet away from the crowds. This is the place for some winter sun and outdoor activity in lush landscape. We will explore the Garajonay National Park, a Unesco World Heritage site since 2021. It has been designated a Biosphere Reserve along with the rest of the island. There will also be rest time to chill at the hotel or do your own exploring of nearby towns.

For swimmers there is the local beach.The hotel also has a spa and 5 swimming pools to relax in after walking or to simply chill in your free time. There are also many hotel based activities on offer which will be explained to you at your arrival briefing.

The people of La Gomera pride themselves on their fresh and unspoiled food and wine. The Atlantic Ocean offers a variety of fresh fish and for vegetarians there is a wealth of fruit and vegetables grown locally. Some speciality products are palm honey, Gofio (a flour made from roasted grain) Gomeran cheese and their very own Malvasia wine. There will be plenty of time to experience the local cuisine.

There are also local producers of La Gomera coffee, cheeses, honey and other products which your guide can introduce you to.

ITINERARY

The detail of some of the walks are attached as a PDF below. To give you an idea.

Rene your guide will discuss with you and decide on which 5 walks you will do depending on the weather. 

Walks start at 9.30am on the 5 walking days. The walks are planned to allow people to shorten their walks if they feel like it and be picked up to be taken back to the hotel. This will allow for longer more stretching walks for those that want them but also allow others to experience the fantastic scenery but do lesser walks if their choice is to relax more. This is a ‘ get away ‘ break.

There is also lots of free time to just relax, have a spa, a massage, walk locally from the hotel or just rest by the pool and read. This is a well-being break.

Whale Watching is included – a very special ocean trip..
