La Gomera day trip
Our comfortable bus will pick you up at your hotel or nearby. We drive to the port of Los Cristianos where we take the ferry to La Gomera. Once we arrive in San Sebastian, the capital of La Gomera, we begin our La Gomera island tour and drive to the beautiful valley of Hermigua. After that, we travel through the forests of El Cedro and continue to the famous Garajonay national park of La Gomera where you have some time to walk around and see the beautiful old forest. During our La Gomera day trip, we also stop in a lovely small village for a typical Canarian lunch.
The whistling language
During the lunch break, you get to see locals perform so-called “Silbo Gomero“, the whistled language of La Gomera. This language is very unique and is still actively used in La Gomera. The whistling language was used as a means of communication in the mountains and is still taught in schools of La Gomera today. On the way back, we will drive through Chipude and El Cercado. You will have the chance to admire the impressive rock of Agando and see how it originated from an ancient volcano. Our last stop of the tour is back in San Sebastian where you will have some free time to walk around and admire the culture of the capital of La Gomera in places such as Torre del Conde and the church of Asuncion where Christopher Columbus was believed to have prayed before starting his journey to the new world.
La Gomera climate
The average temperature in La Gomera is 21 degrees and the climate is similar to Tenerife. However, the weather in La Gomera can be a bit colder in the north and east side of the island. You can often even expect rainfall, which is why there are many wonderful forests and plants to be found.
