Cycling at the peak of La Gomera
The best starting point to get to know La Gomera by bike is its port, located in the capital, San Sebastián de la Gomera, in the extreme east. Here is where the cycle to the peaks of the island starts, a beautiful climb marked by an arid landscape which changes the minute one goes through the tunnel which leads to the valley of Hermigua. Green and lush, the laurel forest is to be enjoyed in all its splendour until the descent to the coast, the famous pescante(davit) and the village of Agulo.
Climb to the summit of Garajonay
After getting one’s strength back in Agulo, the next challenge is to reach the heights of the National Park of Garajonay, the peak of the island at 1,340 metres high. A tough 42 kilometre winding climb starts after taking the road towards Juego de Bolas, the park’s visitor centre. On the way back to San Sebastián awaits a long continuous descent with bends and incredibly impressive views of the fascinating Roque Agando, an enormous rock, the symbol of the island.More information
