La Gomera will enchant you with its age-old nature, its tranquillity, its incredible cliffs with coves and black sand beaches and also with its trails, perfect for discovering the island’s landscape variety and beauty.
More than 600 kilometres of trails on La Gomera make hiking routes a unique experience that will allow you to explore dense laurel forests and breath-taking ravines, admire the ocean’s immensity from breath-taking viewpoints and valleys that open up between the mountains. It is a hiker's dream to know our island by foot, and these are some of the routes that will make it come true:
Route through Raso de la Bruma - Risquillos de Corgo - Las Creces
This trail is ideal for families, as its low difficulty makes it suitable for children. You will be able to observe different types of forests throughout its 4 kilometres of trails. The route begins and ends at the Raso de la Bruma car park, from where the charms of the laurel forest can already be seen. The trail continues to the "Risquillos de Corgo" viewpoint, where on clear days, you can see the island of Tenerife. After this obligatory stop, it is time to continue towards "Las Creces" passing from a garden to an evergreen forest to then return to the beginning of the route.
Alto Garajonay- Hermigua
For the more experienced hikers this may be one of the routes of choice. With a length of just over 10 kilometres, the trail begins at the highest point of La Gomera in the Alto de Garajonay, one of the most impressive viewpoints at 1,487 meters above sea level, and ends in Hermigua. During the descent we pass through the ravine of El Cedro, the Arroyo de El Cedro and the village with the same name. In addition, you can enjoy breath-taking views from the lookout point over the Boca del Chorro waterfall. The end of the route surprises again with the arrival at the picturesque houses of Hermigua.
