What would Columbus must have felt right before he embarked on his journey into the unknown?  This unique trip recreates that exact moment in history. As you will be exploring La Gomera, his last stop before heading to America. So, join me, on this unforgettable adventure in the Canary Islands. And hike across La Gomera and Tenerife, two fantastic places only true explorers have dared to walk through.

Our journey will last one week, over which we will unveil an intriguing network of paths and trails. All of them, gently refreshed by the ocean’s breeze. All of them, surrounded by magnificent mountains that seem to be their ancient guardians. And, well beyond the nature wonders we’ll discover, we’ll get to learn about the local culture and try their exquisite cuisine.

Moreover, we will be exploring different and fascinating spots each day. So each day will be its own adventure. Some of the places we will visit are the Garajonay National Park, the National Park of the Cañadas, and the peaks of Anaga and Teno. Also, we’ll explore enchanting forests, beautiful trails and hypnotizing beaches. What’s more, we will hike across many lovely towns and cities, such as San Cristobal de la Laguna, La Orotava and Garachico.

The itinerary is incredibly varied and rich. And you can find more details below. But there’s really not much to be said, other than a sincere recommendation to explore this dreamlike island. So send me a request, and let me guide you across this wonderful place.
