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.

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.

Enjoyed this trip to La Gomera immensely although did not manage to see any of the lizards that inhabit the island. The coach drivers are amazing, taking a car round the roads was an experience in itself. The whistling demonstration was great.

This was a very inexpensive way of touring another island, which one would not normally get to see. It is the 2nd smallest of the 7 Canary Islands, and is an ancient volcano as are the others. We toured all the way round, stopping for lunch, which was OK, although not particularly inspiring. The whistling demonstration was interesting, and especially that young people are being taught the art, to prevent it dying out. We finished with an hour in the capital it was siesta, so not a lot to do, but all in all, a worthwhile day. Oliver was our guide again, and he is brilliant.

I agree with Vilma G.--the trip was amazing! It was 5 of us traveling and we had the best time because of the great guide--Joaquiam. Weather in November was great and mountains looked breathtaking. If you visit the Canaries, you definitely must take this tour.

A stunning island! Defently a must see if you come to Canarian islands. Amazing views of green valleys, fruit trees and lovely cosy villages. Very interesting and leaving a very good impression trip. Local wine and food was delicious. Also very interesting to see how the locals speak their language - whisle. Great trip, a very professional guide and unforgetable memories!

This was a well organised trip with a very well informed and genial guide, Joaquiam. I was lucky the weather was fine and sunny and was able to fully appreciate the island. It was astonishing value too! Pick up, sail to La Gomera, island tour and lunch. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Tenerife.

We really enjoyed this tour. I am not a big fan of bus tours, but this was really good. Our guide was great, really knowledgeable and very friendly. It was a nice day trip and we got to see a beautiful island we would not have seen otherwise
