TUESDAY: The Rain Forest (El Cedro)
To the Green Heart via the highest point of the island! After the ascent we are rewarded by the fantastic view of the “Pico del Garajonay”, from where we hike down into the national park. On this botanically guided hike we receive information about the relations between mosses, lichen and trees in this unique tropical mountain forest, the world cultural heritage of mankind. Passing the bestknown pilgrimage chapel of the island, we reach the Green Heart of La Gomera; we have short breaks at both places. The hike ends at an old sough, where the bus is waiting for us (no opportunity for a break at a restaurant).
WEDNESDAY: Foto & tour of the Island
Today, we explore some of the most spectacular viewpoints of La Gomera. Our charter bus brings us up into the mountains, where at La Laguna Grande we will take our first walk inside the National Park. The bus subsequently takes us to the "holy springs of Epina". After visiting the springs, we continue the journey through the old cultural center of Vallehermoso until we reach the most beautiful village in Spain, Agulo "el Bombón de La Gomera". Once there, we will go in search of motives. After the visit we will go to the visitor center of the island, where we will have lunch together. Afterwards we will go on our way back interrupted by photo stops at "Miradores" and let us be impressed by the bizarre landscape. A day full of impressions and contrasts ends back in Santiago.
FRIDAY: The Forest of Fables
Today we start our hike at the pottery village of El Cercado. But after a short while we already reach the oldest part of the laurel forest. Surrounded by wafts of mist we pass moss- and lichen-grown trees until we reach our picknick site in the middle of the forest. We continue our hike through this mystic part of the forest until we step into the warming sunlight again. After the hike we ride to the Valle Gran Rey, where we have time for a walk-through.
