For some it is too hot in the summer, La Gomera should be perfectly warm during autumn. Explore the islands’ volcanic terrain, rugged cliffs and the Garajonay National Park, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Taste the island’s seasonal fruit and relax.
How to get there: La Gomera Airport receives flights from major Spanish airports. Hop in a car hire from La Gomera Airport and start your adventure!
