Detailed description

Discover La Gomera on a bus tour with lots of stops- sightseeing on the beautifully sunny island

You will be picked up by bus from the coastal region between Los Gigantes and El Medano and will then be taken to the port of Los Cristianos. From there the ferry crossing to San Sebastian de La Gomera takes about 50 minutes. The ferry trip to the second smallest of the Canary Islands is included in the price. Theres is plenty to experience on the La Gomera bus tour, which takes you through the national park and the Garajonay international nature reserve on La Gomera and then takes you through the most beautiful, tiny and picturesque villages and breath-taking landscapes. There will be repeated stops for photo opportunities at some of the amazing vantage points during the whole excursion on La Gomera.

You can look forward to the Mirador de San Sebastian and the Roque de Agando, a volcanic rock face that is over 1,000 meters high, which is an imposing and iconic symbol of La Gomera. Our excursion to La Gomera will mainly show you the centre of the island with the Garajonay National Park. UNESCO declared this green paradise a World Heritage Site in 1986. Inside the park there is a dense laurisilva forest, which seems like something out of a fairy tale. These were once very common 20 million years ago in the Mediterranean area and in North Africa.

The melting of the glaciers led to the disappearance of most laurisilva - but the plant still feels at home in the Canary Islands even today. And indeed, the laurel on La Gomera will enchant you with its abundance, so that it feels like you’re in another world in the nature park. We stop for lunch near the famous glass viewpoint of Mirador de Abrante, which offers a breath-taking panoramic view of the coast and sea. A regional 3-course menu including drinks is served in a beautiful restaurant. You will also be taken to a small demonstration of the traditional whistling language, which not many islanders can use any more. The sounds once helped people to communicate over long distances. The can hardly be any more picturesque setting for a village than where Los Chejelipes nestles in the landscape. We will discover the small oasis between palm groves and reservoirs and framed by the slopes of the Barranco de La Villa gorge.

Then you will take the air-conditioned bus back to San Sebastian de La Gomera. Follow the guide on a walk through the capital of the island while you learn many fascinating things about La Gomera. You will visit the Nuestra Señora de la Asunciòn cathedral and the picturesque Torre del Conde park, where you can also see the tower that belonged to the Duke who gave his name to this location. At the end of the varied La Gomera excursion we take the last ferry back to Tenerife.

Unfortunately too short

We were picked up very early at the hotel and then go on. We saw many beautiful corners and the lunch in between was good. The guide spoke German and gave many information. Abnnds went back the ferry. Unfortunately, the day was just too short to see everything and it was exhausting. Nevertheless, we would do the tour again.

Leider zu kurz

Wir wurden sehr früh am hotel abgeholt und dann gins los. Wir sahen viele schöne Ecken und das Mittagessen dazwischen war gut. Der Guide sprach deutsch und gab viele Infos. Abnnds ging die Fähre zurück. Leider war der Tag einfach zu kurz um alles zu sehen und es war anstrengend. Trotzdem würden wir die Tour wieder machen.

Excellent!!

Actually I do not like so much the region of the Canary Islands but my boyfriend and if this year it was his turn to decide, I chose Tenerife: I never expected La Gomera to be such a spectacular place! It´s very different from everything I´ve seen in the Canary Islands before. This trip has been worth aa la z! The price is worth every penny we pay, the guide is professional in every moment and the landscape green and beautiful, fascinating. I discovered a new charming place. The next year we´re going to La Gomera!

Excelente!!

En realidad no me gusta tanto la region de las canarias pero a mi novio si y como este año le tocaba a él decidir, escogio Tenerife: Nunca espere que la Gomera fuera un lugar tan espectacular! Es muy diferente a todo lo que he visto en islas canarias antes. Este viaje ha valido la pena de la a a la z! El precio vale cada centavo que pagamos, el guia se porto de manera profesional en todo momento y el paisaje verde y hermoso, fascinante. He descubeirto un nuevo lugar encantador. El próximo añp nos vamos para la gomera!

excursion

We have taken the opportunity to make a trip to Tenerife Gomera, is indeed almost on the doorstep. The day trip went very well, handling smoothly, tour guide was very entertaining and has given us a lot of information. ME very worthwhile, we had a nice day and have the Canaries so relearned know a better place.

Tagesausflug

Wir haben die Chance genutzt, von Teneriffa einen Abstecher nach Gomera zu machen, liegt ja quasi vor der Haustür. Die Tagestour hat sehr gut geklappt, Abwicklung reibungslos, Reiseleiter war sehr unterhaltsam und hat uns viel Wissenswertes mitgegeben. M.E. sehr lohnenswert, wir hatten einen schönen Tag und haben die Kanaren so wieder ein Stückchen besser kennen gelernt.

Very beautiful

La Gomera is really quite different from Tenerife, but really beautiful. Definitely a MUST for every Tenerife tourists. Far away from mass tourism can be found on La Gomera admire the beautiful landscape. Just great. The trip by boat is fast and even before we could our knowledgeable tour guide know. I was 100% satisfied!

Wunderschoen

La Gomera ist wirklich ganz anders als Teneriffa, aber wirklich wunderschoen. Auf jeden Fall ein MUSS fuer jeden Teneriffa-Urlauber. Fernab vom Massentourismus kann man auf La Gomera die wunderschoene Landschaft bewundern. Einfach toll. Die Ueberfahrt mit dem Boot geht schnell und schon davor konnten wir unseren kompetenten Reiseleiter kennenlernen. Ich war zu 100% zufrieden!
