What You Can Expect

La Gomera Day Trip from Tenerife

Visit San Sebastian on the island of La Gomera

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.

It starts really early in the morning, and the tour was pretty much just Germans, I was the only American haha, but it was fantastic, got to practice my German a lot, and the lunch was amazing. I really enjoyed seeing the Silbo Gomero and seeing the remains of ancient Canarian Amazigh culture, the wine was simply delicious! I would so go on this tour again!

This was a fantastic tour!! We were a group of four and we all agree that our guide Ildefonso made the whole day so interesting.His knowledge was endless and his delivery of the information was so professional...no notes whatsoever.Very impressive!!
The demonstration of the Silbo language at the lunch stop was incredible and so pleased to hear that this language is being to taught to schoolchildren so that it will not disappear...what a unique and wonderful heritage.
A seamless tour and well worth the early start from the hotel in Tenerife.

Everything was the way it should be. The guide was amazing and skilled at languages, there were many stops to take pictures at viewpoints. We were provided with interesting info about the area. The included meal was delicious too. Highly recommended.

Interesting tour round and round the mountains. Unfortunately the nature reserve was shrouded in cloud with misty rain so weren't able to appreciate the view. The meal in the cafe was disappointing though the demonstration of whistling, fascinating.
When we were picked up at our hotel, the Arona Gran, our guide Bernard informed us that when we returned to the port after our trip we were to walk back to our hotel, over a mile, so we were not impressed!

Excellent tour for the money paid, picked up and delivered back to our hotel front door. Great day out seeing most of La Gomera. Lucy was served too. Lots of information given by our guide throughout. Great ferry journey from Los Christianos. Well worth considering. Last the whole day.
