Geography has been kind to The Island.
The vestigial volcano rises dramatically out of the Atlantic to a
height of nearly 5,000ft. The island is a mere 15 miles across but
seems to possess more microclimates than a continent. At its heart is a
cloud forest – luxuriant, green, dense – while down at the coast you
find another world of deep canyons, date palms and desert.
La-Gomera Island is too precipitous
to build runways long enough for international jets. The airport can
only service the turboprop planes that hop between the islands. And
there is just one incoming flight per day. The current terminal has
been operating for more than 10 years but shows virtually no sign of
wear. While Tenerife's airports process nearly 13 million passengers a
year, La-Gomera Island handles 32,000.

is waiting for you to discover its greatest treasure: the National
Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site of La Garajonay, a dense
forest of notable richness in terms of its flora, with a magical
appearance. Here you will find many species that are extinct elsewhere,
as well as peaceful springs; this is definitely the ideal place for
people who love hiking. You will be impressed, too, by the dramatic

The Islands principal attraction is
wildlife rather than nightlife. In the morning, Ricardo takes me on a
tour of the island. The outstanding beauty of The
Island is only revealed by taking to the road, or indeed off the
road for anyone with the time and fitness to tackle the hiking trails
that connect the hundreds of ridges and ravines here. Any road journey
on the island is a seemingly endless succession of hairpin bends. As we
climb to La-Gomera's central spine, every corner reveals a new and
eye-popping view.It could be argued that the defining landmark of
La-Gomera Island is not even on the island,
but next door on Tenerife. On any clear day Mount Teide, the highest
mountain in Spain, dominates all views eastwards. Sometimes the
12,000ft volcano appears to be hovering on a featherbed of clouds,
sometimes it peeks over the shoulder of a ridge, sometimes it is simply
an immovable object planted in the ocean.
The best viewpoint is from Ermita de las Nieves (the shrine of
Our Lady of the Snows) at 3,600ft – where a huge car park suggests it
is a favoured stop for coaches carrying day trippers from Tenerife. But
their schedule is tight and they have moved on by the time we arrive.
We have Teide to ourselves, with just the wind blowing through the
pines for company.From the high road connecting San Sebastian to the
west coast we plunge down into the Unesco-listed Garajonay National
Park. After the arid landscape of the coast, the lush forest that
blankets the mountainsides is startling. This is laurisilva (laurel)
forest – a type of sub-tropical vegetation that was common in
Mediterranean Europe in the Tertiary period. At Las Mimbreras the
canopy made up of myrtle and heather trees is so dense that the sun has
difficulty penetrating to ground level. Here giant ferns that dwarf
humans confuse the scale of the forest floor.
It requires little imagination to picture Jurassic Park
beasties emerging from the half light. Ricardo assures me that the
fauna of The Island is almost entirely
benign: "We have no snakes, no deadly spiders or creepy crawlies. Only
the occasional mosquito that is a nuisance."Returning from Agulo on the
north coast, later in the day, we get an insight into how the forest is
sustained. The track climbs up to a ridge within the national park and
we are enveloped by clouds. Moisture clings to everything and drips off
the leaves on to the mulchy soil: the water rushes down the sides of
the barrancos (ravines), emerging eventually in streams and
springs lower down.On the road down to Alajero we dip out of the dense
mist and everything changes again.
The trees have gone and given way to an almost barren
landscape. Gold-leafed shrubs glimmer in the evening sun. Dramatic
shadows fall across the canyons, and the lava dykes and roques
(domes) take on an extraterrestrial glow as the light emulsifies.In
La-GomeraIsland you will find
nature in its purest state, where human intervention has created
agricultural areas of great beauty. Wait till you
see the cultivated terraces, laid out on steep slopes, and you will
appreciate the great effort that was made by the local country folk to
build and work them.
