Voyage to one of the Canary Islands' hidden gems
One of the lesser known of Spain's Canary Islands, La Gomera is located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, and is relatively untouched by tourism. Those who do visit are drawn to La Gomera’s indescribable beauty, steady pace, and lush landscape. The highest peak, Garajonay, sits at the island’s center, and is surrounded by ravines, valleys, and the dense, misty "El Cedro" cloud forest. It is also home of Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Venture by boat to admire Los Organos and its basalt rock formations in the shape of organ pipes.
Step back in time at the preserved medieval Tower of The Peraza in San Sebastian or the neo-Gothic Church of San Marcos in Agulo, to simply enjoy wine and tapas against a volcanic backdrop. Be enthralled by the sounds of Silbo Gomero, the indigenous, whistled language used to communicate over long distances.
