Additional information

Program

1, Arrival at Tenerife South Airport and crossing to La Gomera

Arrival San Sebastian

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.

2, uphill

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.

3, The mid-mountain range
In the morning, after leaving our accommodation, we go with a transfer to the place where we ended. We continue our journey on a very beautiful part of the GR131 on La Gomera. Don't forget your camera! We walk to the highest point Alto Garajonay. In the afternoon we arrive in Chipude. A small village with a real mountain hotel.

4, The last leg of this GR131
Today the first part goes up and down alternately. Until we enter the Garajonay nature reserve in the middle of the island. From then on, the trail takes us mostly downhill. Finally we have a beautiful view over the valley with the matching name Vallehermoso, 'beautiful valley'. The descent starts and we walk to our final destination of this GR131. A short GR131 but one of the most beautiful routes. La Gomera is the perfect walking island for a reason.

5, We Stay in Vallehermoso
Today we transfer to a hiking area to take a short walk. We also go to Miel de la Palma, where we are informed about the flowers, bees and honey on La Palma.

6, Hike from Vallehermoso
Day 6 and last day we go for a very nice walk through one of the valleys. This walk is tailored to the group.
