Garajonay National Park, La Gomera, Canary Islands
Ecotourism in Spain

 
 
 
 
 

Garajonay National Park is located in La Gomera island of the Canary Islands on the Atlantic Ocean.

With its evergreen dunk laural forests and its Garajonay National Park, the island is being doubt as the magic island. Here lies the most ancient and best preserved forest in Europe, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The Garajonay National Park is a wonderful environment for all nature lovers. It watches over the island of La Gomera from above. Within its bounds grow the islands’ finest specimens of laurisilva, a humid forest of laurel and similar plants and bushes left over from the Tertiary and now practically nonexistent in the rest of the world.

An environment full of mysticism with majestic clouds streaming continuously across the treetops. There are glorious views of Tenerife, La Palma and El Hiero.

This botanical gem is heightened by giant heather and a wide selection of endemic plants sprouting from the sheer rock faces found in this designated area.
