Depart from your southern Tenerife hotel and venture to the west coast to climb aboard your awaiting ferry. Admire the seaside splendor of the scenery as you sail towards La Gomera, a beautiful island hailed as one of the Canary Islands’ most sublime spots.
Disembark at San Sebastian, the island’s capital, and enjoy a guided walking tour of the town’s historical highlights. See charming churches like Iglesia de Asunción and capture photographs beside Columbus House, a monument to where Columbus stayed while he was on the island.
Next, travel by air-conditioned minivan to the Mirador de las Carboneras, a vertiginous vantage point that affords spectacular views of the Hermigua Valley. Gaze at the sea-fringed and cove-studded coast before heading to the traditional town of El Cedro for a fulfilling lunch.
Feast upon dishes cooked according to indigenous recipes in a rustic restaurant, sampling dishes such as beef goulash and salted Canarian potatoes. Revitalized, venture to the quaint village of Las Rosas and absorb its provincial charm on a guided walking tour. Take a break to watch a demonstration of the Gomeran whistling language, known locally as silbo gomero, and gain fascinating insight into the origin of the communication.
After enriching exploration of the island, return to San Sebastian and make the ferry journey back to Tenerife then to your hotel.
Please note: Occasionally, lunch may be eaten in Las Rosas and the stop in El Cedro will consist of free time to explore.
