The forest is like you can imagine un untouched, original forest from the dawn of time. There are well-marked trails, fantastic scenery and viewpoints. Available from several starting points via bus or car. Bring warmer clothes than you need down at the coastline.

We spent 4 days walking around the trails and paths of the park - really pleasant weather, some of the trails were very steep and quite difficult so be prepared and plan ahead we had a excellent guide

We did the island tour. No cloud so wonderful. Must watch weather though as not good if cloudy. Scenery is stunning. The roads a bit scary though. Will do this again when we go next year.

We sweat a lot during the hiking in the Garajonay National park but it was more than worth it. If you like hiking then you definitely need to check out the national park!!

Collected at 8.00am for a 9.00am ferry from Los Cristianos to the delightful island of La Gomera. Expertly looked after by our tour guide for the day - Oliver. He must be hoarse by the end of the day as all his commentaries are delivered in Spanish, English, French and German! The only real way to see the island and... More

We stayed at the village Las Hayas, and took the car to the treck of Cerdo village which is located in the Garajonay park. The start point is El Contadero close to Pajarito. Beutifull view and a pleasunt way. It took us 5.4 km to get there- 2 hr, and 2 hr back.

Amazing environment with tranquil walks - nature dominating. The visitors centre has excellent displays of life on the island including a helpful model of the island. As a bonus the biscuits in the attached cafe are great!!

We drove through the national park to cross the island. There's various viewing points on the way that are spectacular. You can see Tenerife from afar and the views with la gomera itself are amazing. We didn't have time to walk through but nonetheless worth a visit. The scenery is amazing.
