Journey to the top of Alto de Garajonay (1.487m)

The first walk of the week starts from our hotel. We head to the top of the island – the Alto de Garajonay. We pass near La Fortaleza, a massive volcanic mesa (flat-topped) formation used by the ancient Gomeros to pray to their gods. We flank the magnificent Erques Barranco and climb to Igualero, the highest village in La Gomera, where stands the monument to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Silbo Gomero, the whistled language of Gomera!!. From here to the top is a short distance.

Chipude to Arure

Departing from our hotel in Chipude, an old paved path links the main mountain villages of this
area. Our route takes us to El Cercado, famous locally for its traditional pottery, still made by women generation after generation without a potter’s wheel. We will also sample some local drinks – guarapo, mistela and gomerón. We continue to Las Hayas to discover the importance of palm trees for the local economy. From here we enter the evergreen laurel forest, intensely used before in this area and now protected as a National Park. A final descent to Arure leads us through the countryside where we will enjoy jaw-dropping views from Mirador del Santo where today’s walk come to its end.

Hike Vallehermoso

Our bus transfer takes us to the north of the island, passing by Hermigua valley and the lovely town of Agulo. Our hike starts from Vallehermoso and ascends until the ridge of Santa Clara and Chijeré. As we gain elevation over the valley, we come across several forms of vegetation: euphorbias, junipers, palm trees and laurel forests at different altitudes and require the various natural conditions to grow. La Gomera is an outstanding place for biodiversity.
