The Gem of the Canaries
Ever heard of La Gomera? Tbh neither had we - but now that we have, we’re not like to ever forget it. Palm-filled valleys, magical mountain trails, black sand beaches with crystal-clear waters and stunning ancient forests home to species that have disappeared everywhere else all await you on this incredible 7-night escape to the hidden gem of the Canary Islands. Home to multiple World Heritage Sites, you’ll have to give your imagination a little push to describe the incredible beauty of this island, so valuable it’s actually considered as a Biosphere Reserve (well excuse us). Check in to your breathtaking hotel with uninterrupted views of Tenerife and Mount Teide on the horizon, then wander the trails of the Garajonay National Park – home to the last remaining laurel forests on earth. Take in the views while tucking in to mouthwatering local cuisines at your hotel. Think it all ends there? Not a chance. We’ll also be sending you and your plus one on the high seas to spot a whale or two on a sustainable and respectful tour with the OCEANO team. There, now try ever forgetting about La Gomera!
Fasten your seatbelts, you and your plus one will be treated to return flights from London to Tenerife. Not quite there yet though, we’ll cover your ferry over and all transfers too.
So there are views, and then there are views from the 4-star Parador Hotel. Along with an incredible buffet breakfast, every morning you’ll wake up to breathtaking views straight across the Atlantic Ocean. From the patio of your superior double room you’ll be able glimpse whales playing in the swells or simply watch the sunlight dancing on the waves. Prefer diving in to the sea over watching it? No worries – the beach is a 15 minute walk away as is San Sebastian de la Gomera Harbour and La Gomera Archaeological Museum if you fancy exploring.
Should you wish to dine at your hotel, you’ll be treated to the best in local cuisine with mouthwatering homegrown produce, fresh fish and locally reared meats making up the menu. Tuck in to it all under the glowing Mediterranean sun with outdoor dinners and lunches by the pool.
With 2 World Heritage sites, the environment and sustainability are of utmost importance on the island of La Gomera. We want you to experience the best of the island while respecting this, and what better way to do that than a respectful whale watching tour? You’ll take to the high seas to watch these gentle giants in their natural habitat while taking every care not to disturb them. Usually they’re happy to have you, seeking to get closer and even riding the bow wave. However, if they make it clear they’d rather not have visitors that day (come on, we’ve all been there), no worries, you’ll sail off to another location to enjoy some other wonders of the big blue – think seabirds, sea turtles, jumping tuna and flying fish. Either way, it’s sure to be unforgettable.
To ensure you have the BEST time possible, we’ve thrown in an extra or two. We’ll cover your ferry from Tenerife to La Gomera and back and all transfers!
