La Gomera by Bus
The excursion to La Gomera by bus takes place from Monday to Sunday in several popular languages. It can be done from both Puerto de la Cruz and the south of Tenerife. This day-long trip requires you to bring your ID card or passport (necessary for the ferry check-in). The coach arrives at the port in Los Cristianos, where passengers board the ferry to the neighboring island of La Gomera. Along the way, you can admire the beautiful view of Tenerife receding and La Gomera approaching. The ferry has a souvenir shop and a few bars where you can buy drinks and sandwiches. You can move around freely on the ferry. We advise those prone to seasickness to avoid the front of the ferry, as the waves are strongest there.
La Gomera is one of the smaller islands in the Canary Archipelago. It is several times smaller than Tenerife, with an area of only 370 km2. However, unlike Tenerife, it is incredibly green, thanks to its history connected with the Spanish conquest of the islands. La Gomera is sometimes referred to as the Island of Columbus, the Island of Witches, and the Island of a Hundred Thousand Palms. It is undoubtedly a magical and mysterious island.
Huge green ravines, winding roads, narrow passes, cliffs, and the Garajonay National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) are just the beginning of the adventure. It offers incredibly attractive views for nature lovers and pristine landscapes. There are no typical tourist resorts here, rather tiny villages and towns. There are numerous plantations of bananas, papayas, and avocados. For those seeking seclusion during their vacation, a holiday on La Gomera can be a very attractive option.
La Gomera by Bus – Whistling Language “Silbo”
During the day, a meal is planned at a local restaurant. During the restaurant stop, there is a demonstration of the unique whistling language called “Silbo,” which has been inscribed on UNESCO’s list of intangible cultural heritage. In the past, it was used for basic communication between goat herders on the steep mountain slopes.
This extraordinary language consists of only three vowels, two consonants, and, most importantly, intonation. It is interesting to note that it can imitate any existing spoken language. It is truly remarkable to hear whistled “good morning” or “welcome to La Gomera.” The trip to La Gomera is undoubtedly an unforgettable experience.
Garajonay National Park
One of the highlights of the excursion is a visit to the stunning Garajonay National Park, which houses 18 different laurel trees. In the center of the national park, there is a local shop where you can purchase typical products from La Gomera. These include Almogrote (a mature goat cheese blended with pepper in the form of a hard pâté), El Gomeron (local moonshine combined with palm honey), and La Mistela (local wine with spices). These products are not easy to find on Tenerife, so it’s worth remembering during the trip.
Another opportunity to buy souvenirs is during the visit to San Sebastian, the capital of the island. The town is associated with the history of Christopher Columbus’s visits to the island. It is also home to the first church built on the island, dating back to the 15th century. In San Sebastian, you can also find four deep wells that are dry today. Interestingly, hundreds of years ago, they were filled with drinkable, fresh water. It is essential to return to the ferry on time for the return journey. The next ferry is only the following day.
