Covering 33% of the island is the UNESCO listed Garajonay National Park. Inside this gorgeous Greenland is 8 of the 34 plant species native to La Gomera. Similarly, rare Laurel pigeons and long-toed pigeons are found to inhabit this national park. Inside Garajonay, there are exclusive trails housed in unusual forests which nowadays are rare to find in Southern Europe and Africa.
Step back in time and visit El Cercado village where traditional La Gomerian pottery making began. Visit local artisans keeping alive the ancient skill since aborigine times. Make a visit to the exhibition centre of Las Loceras and make pottery with guidance from local artisans.
Another highlight is its diverse wildlife scattered on and close to the island. Look out for the 50 different forms of nesting bird species.
