Travel back to where Christopher Columbus set sail for the new world. This is your chance to visit another Canarian Island and go back in time, visit La Gomera, where you will find an unspoiled island lost in a time warp, so beautiful and fascinating you will just want to stay there forever.
We will take you there on the fast ferry to the Capital San Sebastián and through the valley of Hermigua towards the “Garajonay National Park” through the beautiful forest of “El Cedro” which overlooks its unique vegetation.
At the top of the Island you will have lunch in Mirador Abrante , a unique viewpoint overhanging above the Atlantic and facing Mount Teide in Tenerife, whilst being shown how the locals can communicate through whistling. This whistling language is still taught to this day in schools and was very useful on the tiered farms on this very elevated terrain.
On your return, descending the Island, you will pass through Chipude and El Cercado and marvel at the impressive Agando rock , also enjoying the history and culture of San Sebastián, viewing the church of Asuncion where Christopher Columbus prayed before his journey for the New World . Do not forget your cameras!!
