We walked in the park over three separate days. It is very well maintained. The tracks are clearly marked. There are a range of walks - something for everyone. Be prepared, you need decent walking shoes, sunscreen and water. It can be chilly so take layers. A real gem of a place.

Spoilt for choice with the hiking trails here. Yes gets cloudy at times but that's part of the mystical island. Walks can be as easy or hard as you like, great experience

We have been in La Gomera several times and each time we have been impressed with the facilities and variety of the Garajonay National Park and in particular its Visitor Centres. On this visit we have been to both the Visitor Centre at Las Rosas which has beautiful gardens, a memory room and a splendid film auditorium showing an excellent... More

A definite 'must do' when visiting La Gomera for all who enjoy walking. Lots of shade as walking through the rainforest and stunningly beautiful in April with swathes of spring flowers. As you might expect you are rewarded with amazing views at the summit. Good facilities at the visitors' centre: car parking, toilets, refreshments.

We had a lovely walk through the national park seeing lots of interesting flora, and reaching view points with views of Gran Canaria, beyond Tenerife. Interesting to see the work and regrowth since the 2012 fires

We spent a lovely day on a guided walk through the Garajonay National Park with HF Holidays. We walked through cold swirling mists through deep green vegetation and mosses. If you set out in the morning wear warm clothes and take gloves and hats! Highly recommended.

So interesting....we have been on hot clear days and heavy cloud days.......heavy cloud days are interesting as one can see the moisure leaking from the clouds and saturating everything. You can eat there too.

We came here with an organized buss tour, so we only had aprox 30 min to look around. But I knew we have to go back, renting a car, so we can stay for longer.
