Sightseeing tour for everyone! Transport takes us to the starting point Las Paredes. Before starting you will get a short introduction into the techniques of riding, gear shifting and braking on a mountain bike. We follow a quiet by road that offers stunning views across the island. We pass across Igualero, the highest mountain village on La Gomera, and Chipude, its oldest authentic community, and gradually reach El Cercado, the village that is famous for its traditional pottery. After a refreshing stop at a local bar we cycle on through Las Hayas and Arure until finally, cycling down the winding road through the large ravine to Valle Gran Rey, that has become the main tourist area in La Gomera. To end our excursion we take the boat back to Playa Santiago so you can enjoy the beautiful coastline of La Gomera. If you don´t want to be pressure by time to take the boat back the transport can bring us back to Playa Santiago!
