Reviews for La Gomera self guided walking, Canary Islands


review 16 Dec 2021

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Walking in different regions of the island - the scenery is so dramatic and very varied considering it is a small island.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The walking is quite strenuous - a lot of steep up and down so expect a good workout!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Staying in small, independent hotels and eating regional food in local restaurants benefited local people. We were walking rather than hiring a car so that reduced environmental impact (although our luggage was transferred by car). Buying local produce supports conservation by encouraging farmers to manage their land sustainably, which is one way the national park is trying to prevent devastating forest fires in the future.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent holiday, it had the right balance of walks and rest-days for us. The organisation was faultless. A great way to see different parts of the island.
