Canary Islands - La Gomera (Chapter)
This is the La Gomera chapter from Lonely Planet’s Canary Islands guidebook.
A paradise of natural beauty, this small, round island is not the sort of place that offers golden beaches or wild, tropical nightlife. Instead this is an island on which to lace up your hiking boots and hit the myriad of walking trails that weave across its lush and spectacular landscape.
- explore the fern-filled trails of the Parque Nacional de Garajonay, the lush laurisilva forest at the heart of the island
- be amazed by the tropical flowers, plants and fruits covering the slopes of the lush Vallehermoso
- restaurants & accommodation
- soak up the beauty of Valle Gran Rey, with its plunging valleys and picture-perfect terraced hillsides
Coverage includes: San Sebastián de la Gomera, Parque Nacional de Garajonay, The North, Hermigua, El Cedro, Agulo, Las Rosas, Vallehermoso & around, The South, Playa Santiago, Alajeró & around and Valle Gran Rey.
