Hike: The apothecary of yore (Difficulty: easy)
The laurel forest of La Gomera, a relic from the Tertiary Era, is home to a great diversity of species, some of them found nowhere else in the world. Swathed in mists conjured up by the trade winds, it invites us to uncover its secrets, get to know its unique features and enjoy its pure air and beauty. We shall go deep within this ancient forest and experience it for ourselves. We walk in the footsteps of the former inhabitants of the island and learn about the medicinal herbs that grow in this “forest pharmacy”. When the weather is right, we enjoy the views of the Vallehermoso valley up to majestic Teide.
