Alto de Garajonay (1.487m)

The first walk on 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.

Departing from our hotel in Chipude, today’s walk takes us to the neighbouring hamlet of El Cercado,
famous locally for its traditional pottery, still made by women generation after generation without the use of a potter’s wheel. We can take the opportunity to sample some local drinks: guarapo, mistela and gomerón, and discover the importance of palm trees for the local economy while starting our descent. A steep, paved path leads us to the bottom of the impressive Valle Gran Rey.
