MONDAY: The Forest of Fables (national park)
Today we start our hike Arure. 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. Our last steps lead us to the pottery village of El Cercado where we wrap up the hike at a restaurant with Canarian dishes.
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.
WEDNESDAY: The Rain Forest (national park)
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).
THURSDAY: FLEX hike
Every Thursday we offer different ambitious hikes. Be it “The Ridge Path”, "The Dolomite Path" or “The Skywalk", we always guarantee spectacular tours for fit hiking fans in an impressive landscape. Please ask in the Timah Shop in La Puntilla for information on the current hikes.
FRIDAY: The Table Mount Argodey
Come with us today through the canyon region of La Gomera. On our way to Igualero, the village with the highest location on the island, we’ll pass palm trees, agaves, figs and almond trees. Then we continue our way to La Fortaleza, the cult mountain of the Gomeros. While hiking we’ll pass a bizarre, almost alpine mountain landscape with very impressive deep slopes which show the unique build of the island. After a break we will continue our hike on the impressive path to La Fortaleza, our destination for today. If the weather allows it, we’ll climb the mountain. After having finished the tour we’ll take a refreshment at a bar.
SATURDAY: The Wild Northwest
We start our hike into the “beautiful valley” at a height of about 800m with spectacular views of the northwestern coast of La Gomera. Our hike today will be ruled by fantastic views and relicts of the volcanic activity. After a break at a chapel we start our descent to Vallehermoso with a view of Roque Cano, then we pass terraces and vineyards. In Vallehermoso we have time for a walk-through and refreshment before we ride back.
