La Gomera - The Emerald Isle
From Tenerife, we take the ferry to La Gomera, pulling into the colourful port of San Sebastian - our first base. Though just 20km across, the island's steep mountains rise 1500m above the ocean. There's time to enjoy a walk through the Garajonay Forest, the island's mossy spine and a World Heritage site.
Remote El Hierro
By ferry we journey to Valverde on El Hierro, then cross the island to reach La Frontera. Situated in the great sweep of El Golfo Bay, 1000m cliffs form a dramatic backdrop. With two days here there's plenty of time to relax and explore this peaceful island. Walks may include the fertile north coast, passing vineyards and groves surrounded by black lava walls. Flowering cacti thrive in the drier south while the green meadows of the central plateau are scattered with volcanic cones.
Vallehermoso & Tenerife
Returning to La Gomera, we head to our base at Chipude. From Agulo, we enjoy marvellous views of Teide Volcano across the sea, and walk to explore the hidden charms of Vallehermoso where white cottages ramble up the hillside. We then continue to Chipude; from where we can do several walks in the hills splashed with scarlet poinsettias and waving banana trees. Finally we sail back to Tenerife where there's the chance to visit Teide volcano, Spain's highest mountain (3718m). Now a National Park area, it is crowned with ice and snow in winter and sprinkled with colourful flowers in spring.
