La Gomera Day Trip from Tenerife

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Visit the island of La Gomera on a day trip from southern Tenerife, and experience its sights, culture and food with a local guide! A haven of peace with dramatic terrain, the island is often considered as the gem of the Canarian archipelago. Discover landmarks such as Columbus House in the capital of San Sebastian, ogle the views from Mirador de Las Carboneras, enjoy a 2-course lunch in a quaint village, and then watch a ‘silbo gomero’ (local whistling language) demonstration.

  • Hassle-free day trip to La Gomera from Tenerife
  • Delve deeper into the island’s history and highlights with a guide
  • Discover San Sebastian, two other towns, and the local whistling language
  • Complete and convenient: lunch with wine, ferries, and transfers included
What to Expect
Book your required hotel pickup and travel by air-conditioned vehicle to Tenerife’s west coast for your ferry to La Gomera, considered one of the most scenic of the Canary Islands.
On arrival at the capital, San Sebastian, take a walking tour: Stroll the pretty streets to see the Church of the Assumption (Iglesia de la Asunción) and Columbus House, where it’s thought the 16th-century explorer stayed.
Continue by air-conditioned minivan to take in the stunning coastal and Hermigua Valley panoramas from the Carboneras Mirador viewpoint. Then, enjoy a traditional local lunch with wine at El Cedro.
Afterward, explore Las Rosas village on foot before a fascinating demonstration of Gomera’s ancient Silbo Gomero whistling language. Finally, take the return ferry to Tenerife, where a hotel drop-off concludes your day.
Please note: Occasionally, lunch may be in Las Rosas with the El Cedro stop composed of free time to explore.

Tired of people everywhere in Tenerife? Get away to Gomera - the island you can see is just 1,5 hours by ferry (which is fun, btw). Small island with different altitudes and nature, eco products and delicious ice cream on the main square!
