Tenerife to La Gomera in one day, this is one of the most popular trips; La Gomera is the second smallest of the Canary Islands and it is only 30 Km far away from Tenerife; this makes it possible to take a day trip and explore the spectacular landscapes the island has to offer.
By ferry it takes only 50 minutes from Tenerife to La Gomera; therefore many people decide every year to visit this place. It is a very green island where only 22000 people live; the air is very clean and the pace is very slow and relaxed. It is a paradise for people who love nature, peace and incredible panoramas; in addition people call it “Christopher Columbus’ island” because the explorer stopped here for about a month on his journey to discover America in 1492.
