A tough cycling experience in a mystical land of mist and fauna!
La Gomera is the latest addition to our tour schedule-it´s a special island and an amazing day out on the bike! It´s important to remember that the riding is not easy and doesn´t suit the budget of every rider due to the additional expense of the cost of the boat from Los Cristianos to San Sebastian.
However, if you do make it across, you will experience something truly unique. We climb out of the capital, San Sebastian, towards the World Heritage site that is the Garonjonay National Park. With its 450 variations of flora and year-round misty appearance, there is something very mystical about this cycling paradise. Coupled with the island´s unique whistling language, La Gomera is special.
