(Hotel Torre Del Conde / San Sebastian de la Gomera)
You need to arrive at Tenerife South on the Saturday pre tour before 17hrs.
You’ll be given clear directions of how to get from the airport to Los Cristianos where you’ll be met and shown where to leave your bags pre crossing (if early) and where to meet for the ferry.
One unique ferry crossing at 19hrs from Los Cristianos to San Sebastian de la Gomera will take the whole group the 50mins journey across the water to our first hotel. It’s a 10 minute walk from the boat to the hotel front door. Dinner included.
“Circular walk from Hermigua via La Caleta” (Apts Telares / Hermigua)

By way of exploring the valley and familiarising ourselves with Hermigua , our first walk will take us down to the coast and then up into the hills beyond Santa Catalina beach (3.5/4hrs walking) Dinner included.

“La Laja / Roques Circuit”. (Hotel Torre Del Conde / San Sebastian de la Gomera)
This was the walk I wanted to do the first time I explored the island by car.
The Roque de Agando points skywards near the centre of the island and is a massive feature for lovers of high mountain scenery. Today’s walk is circular, passing the hamlet of Laja with some breathtaking terrain. (Walking 4hrs approx) Dinner included.

Our path winds down into the very well kept village below via the GR131 and after a break we push on to Hermigua where transport will take us south for our last night in the capital.
