What to Expect
Travel back in time on a tour from the south of Tenerife to the nearby island of La Gomera. Discover an unspoiled island lost in time, so beautiful and fascinating you will want to stay forever.
Catch the fast ferry to San Sebastián de La Gomera. Then, drive from the capital through the valley of Hermigua toward Garajonay National Park. Travel through the forest of “El Cedro” and marvel at its unique vegetation. Enjoy lunch at the top of the island while watching a demonstration of how the locals perform their unique whistling language called "Silbo Gomero." Formerly used as a means of communication on the tiered crops of the elevated terrain, the language is still taught in schools to this day.
On your way back, pass through "Chipude" and "El Cercado." Admire the impressive rock of "Agando." Learn the history and culture of San Sebastián, and see the church of Asunción where Christopher Columbus prayed before his journey to the New World.
