TUESDAY: The Tour of the Island

Together we explore the island by bus and thereby discover the most important landmarks of La Gomera. After a first stop at the Mirador de Palmarejo, the restaurant designed by César Manrique, we ride to the potterers of El Cercado, whom we’ll look over the shoulder. We continue via Chipude into the national park in the direction of Hermigua, interrupted by photo stops at spectacular "miradores" until we reach the most beautiful village in Spain, Agulo "el Bombón de La Gomera". Once there, we go in search of motifs. After the visit we will drive to the visitor center of the island where we will have lunch together. Afterwards we will drive through the National Park back to the valley. A day full of impressions and contrasts ends back in Valle Gran Rey.

General nformation

Hiking with us means

Hiking in small groups, so you can enjoy it better – receiving explanations about the unique flora and fauna of the island – getting to know people and country as well as the Canarian kitchen – hiking on select routes off the often trodden paths – personal security and care with English-speaking guides from Timah – experience with the local conditions, culture, the people and language of the country – professional care combined with that extra something spent on the elaboration of our hikes – diverse hiking programs for young persons and those who stayed young.

Our philosophy

No alpine experience or knowledge is necessary for our hiking program. The hikes go from easy to medium difficult and are build up in a way to enable you to enjoy the national park Garajonay and the island’s beautiful landscape without stress. Experiencing nature and landscape, sociability, relaxation and the fun of hiking are the foreground features. The hiking program is designed to enable young persons and those who stayed young to participate. Average climbs and descents are about 500 metres of altitude, walking times range from 40 minutes to 5.5 hours.


You ought to have at your disposal: the appropriate safety of step, condition, health and some hiking practice. Service Daily transfer with the hiking bus to the starting point and from the end to the accommodation, insurance and a qualified multilingual TIMAH-hiking guide. Food After hikes we stop at a restaurant in order to enjoy the typical cooking (usually not included in the price).
