The Canary Islands, also named since long ago as The Fortunate Islands or Champs Elysees, are composed of 7 unique islands: Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro.

They are home to one of the greatest riches in ecosystems around the world, with dunes, forests, volcanoes, starry skies and above all, beaches, of black sand, blonde, red or white. In addition, the Canary Islands offer good weather all year, suitable for outdoor activities.

I invite you to join me on a 5-day program (3-day trek) in the Canary Islands, travelling to the island of La Gomera, known as the Magical Island. La Gomera is a Biosphere Reserve and also has a rich biodiversity of flora and fauna, with many endemic species.

Our tour takes us to immerse ourselves for a few days in the Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasting a unique ecosystem in the world. Laurisilva stands out here, a mass of prehistoric vegetation native to the Macaronesian region that covered the tropics millions of years ago and which has been preserved on the island thanks to its temperate climate.

During these days we will also savor the typical gastronomy of the Canary Islands, rich in variety and of great quality. This tour runs during April, May, October and November, from Wednesday to Sunday.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
