    La Gomera is the hiking island of the Canary Islands. It is better to discover the island with an experienced guide, accompanied by a nice group of hikers. Please don´t forget to bring good hiking shoes. Timah Tours has already been operating on the island for many years and offers a full program of excursions and hiking tours.

    Hiking Garajonay

    Gomera

    La Gomera, in the Canarian archipelago, is the very small, and much less visited island among the Canary Islands. Its Parque Nacional de Garajonay, a deep green, misty laurel forest, is a UNESCO world heritage site. If you are one of those hiking fans you probably will find yourself easily amongst the many, mostly Spanish & German, hikers which you can take as waymakers. Walking trails around the valley with The Lovers and Arroyo del Cedro are precarious though as the valleys dramaticalley narrowing at different points.

    Equipment: guide book/map
    2-3 litre bottled water max
    lightweight waterproof jacket
    functional hat
    sunglasses
    plasters
    antiseptic
    tweezers
    compass
    whistle (emergency case)
    camera

    Mountain bikes are for hire in the bigger towns.
    Diving, including instruction, was on offer in Playa Santiago - the dive boat was moored in the harbour - and maybe elsewhere - www.gomera-dive-resort.com.
    The golf course with a driving range is on the eastern headland right next to the Hotel Jardin Tecina in Playa Santiago. It sloped generously towards the ocean. Shown in the picture - beyond, El Teide, Tenerife in the distance.
