The most interesting corners of Tenerife, La Gomera and Gran Canaria in luxurious conditions
From the southern port of Tenerife - Los Cristianos we will cross the luxury ferry Fred Olsen to the port of San Sebastian in Gomera.
The capital of the island - San Sebastian, is the bus port of Christopher Columbus before his great expeditions into the unknown. The town has a well with water, which was dedicated to America, an old house where the sailor stayed and a modest museum showing the history of his travels.
After visiting San Sebastian, we will start a tour of the island with stops at the viewpoints showing its unusual charms. Steep ravines, popularly called "barrancos", piled with lots of terrace plots, tiny villages situated at the foot of mountains and hills are one of the most interesting views and places where the inhabitants of the island live today.
We will visit the oldest laurel and heather forest in the world with over 400 species of exotic plants and shrubs. Today it is the area of the National Park inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Old laurel trees and powerful briars reaching up to several meters, often shrouded in fog, give the place a characteristic atmosphere.
In the afternoon we will have lunch at the beautifully located restaurant "Las Rosas", combined with a demonstration of the whistled language used once by "Guanches" - the native inhabitants of the Canary Islands. This form and ability to use sound have survived to this day as one of the elements of their ancestors' tradition.
On the route we will stop in a banana garden, where we will see how the inhabitants grow bananas, mangoes, papayas and avocado in addition to.
After visiting the center of the island, we go back to its capital, where we have free time to walk the streets of San Sebastian.
How to dress We recommend taking a sweater / jacket on the trip (in winter: long pants, warm sweater and jacket), it can be humid in the laurel forests and windy at the viewpoints.
