La Gomera, MericaGR131 Camino Natural Cumbres de La Gomera, San Sebastián de la Gomera - Vallehermoso, 37 km, 2 days

La Gomera can be imagined as an egg: the yolk in the centre is its unique rain forest, only found on this island, made up from laurel trees. The trade winds create a moist climate in this hilly interior for most of the year.

The GR131 is one of the two GR’s on the island. The other GR encircles the island. This one climbs up from the harbour to the centre of the island where the rain forest thrives. It can be chilly here, bring warm clothes. The trail comes near the highest summit of La Gomera, Alto de Garajonay, 1.487 m. The trail ends in the attractive rural town Vallehermoso, surrounded by terraces and arid mountains.

The GR131 is part of the European long distance path E7.
