¡Hola La Gomera! La Gomera is not a secret for enthusiasts anymore, but thankfully the island is still not on the radar of the mass tourist. No all-in hotels, no fighting over beach chairs, and no fish 'n chips. This is La Gomera, the green pearl of the Canary Islands, loved by hippies, hikers, and connoisseurs of the good Canarian life. Hiking from point to point, climbing the highest peak on the island, short day hikes, or walking around the entire island in the shape of a GR route. Looking for a walking paradise? La Gomera is it.

Self-guided on the GR131, La Gomera's Camino Naturalis. To finish it off and get back to your location, you'll also hike a section of the GR132, the hiking trail that circles the entire island in its full form. Each day you will walk from hotel to hotel and we will make sure your luggage is ready for you in the evening. No worries, on your own. Vamos!

San Sebastian de La Gomera - Degollada de Peraza

Duration: 04:00 h
Distance: 9.3 km
Ascent: 930 m
Descent: 20 m
Welcome to the GR131, the hiking trail that "connects" all the Canary Islands but really stands out in La Gomera. The first stage is an immediate beauty and takes you over a distance of almost 10 kilometres to the viewpoint of Degollada de Peraza. This spot takes a central role in Gomeranian history. It was here that the warrior Hautacuperche killed Hernan Peraza "El Joven" for breaking the liaison pact that had united them for several generations. For the island, this marked the rebellion of the Gomeros, which heralded a tragic end for its former inhabitants. Along the way, you'll pass beautiful traditional architecture and enjoy spectacular views over the canyons of Cabrito and La Laja. Near the Degollada de Peraza, a traditional hotel awaits your arrival.

Degollada de Peraza - Chipude

Duration: 05:00 h
Distance: 15.6 km
Ascent: 690 m
Descent: 540 m
Today you get a bit of everything La Gomera has to offer: laurel forests, beautiful rock formations, unprecedented views and deep ravines. This section cuts through one of the island's most important areas, Garajonay National Park. Laurel forests were once found throughout southern Europe but nowadays, unfortunately, you only find them in remote areas like this one. Garajonay is home to one of the best representations of laurel forest in the entire Canary Islands. The stage ends in the idyllic town of Chipude with the imposing Fortaleza de Chipude in the background.
