The GR131 La Gomera is part of the long distance route.
La Gomera is the fifth island of the GR131. From Tenerife we take a ferry to La Gomera to walk there from east to west within three days. We walk in the middle of the island through the Garajonay nature reserve with the highest point 1478 meters. About 450 plants and tree species grow in the park. A special feature of the park is the fog, which is more present in the winter than in the summer. In the center of the park is an ancient laurel forest.
On La Gomera you have the so-called whistle language. The Silbo Gomero (Gomeran flute) is a flute language “spoken” by some residents of the Canary Island of La Gomera. The language serves to communicate through the deep valleys (barrancos) that occur throughout the island.
With a select group of a maximum of 8 people, we walk across this small beautiful hiking island in 3 days. From East to West La Gomera. The route is approximately 40 kilometers long. However, a good condition is recommended. On La Gomera we leave from San Sebastián in the east to Valhermoso in the west over a length of 40 km. There are quite a few altimeters to overcome here. From Vallehermoso we make 2 very nice day walks.
The 8-day trip consists of carefully selected accommodations, based on a double room, and usually a private bathroom, with breakfast. Of course there is the possibility to get a single room for a surcharge.

When you arrive at our accommodation, you can recover from the flight and the ferry crossing on the first day. San Sebastián has a nice car-free center with shops and restaurants. While enjoying a drink you will receive an explanation about the journey, and you will receive the Goodie bag.
The start of stage no. 1 is immediately a tough start. We have to climb a lot, that's why we don't make many kilometers this day. When we have arrived at altitude, we can treat ourselves to a cooling drink at the restaurant. We will return to San Sebastian with a transfer.
