To the Top – Alto de Garajonay

View map >

The transport take us to the starting point at Pajarito where we start with an easy climb to the Alto de Garajonay the highest point of the island. On clear days you can see from here almost the entire island of La Gomera. The islands of La Palma, El Hierro, Tenerife and Gran Canaria can also be seen if the day is very clear. Perhaps because of its strategic location, this place is shrouded in magic since ancient times. There are signs of sacrifices made by the pre-Hispanics, interesting places found throughout the area.

We make our decent through the national park until Laguna Grande where we have a snack and look around. We continue our cycling back to Pajarito where we enter another trail that take us to the spectacular views over the volcano plug (Roque Agando), Benchijigua and Imada. After a nice climb we make our way down to Playa Santiago.
