GR132, La GomeraThe island of Gomera is a popular hiking destination. Nature is different from the other islands. The centre of the island is densely forested and hilly. This laurel rain forest is protected and declared a Unesco World Heritage Site.

The coastal ring is dry and eroded. This trail, the GR132, is exploring this coastal ring. The earth is split at many places by deep eroded ravines, called barrancos, which make the hiking more strenuous. In some of these ravines, the forest thrives. When possible, the islanders cultivate the soil by creating terraced fields. The GR touches the rain forest in the northern part of the island.

The GR132 is an interesting and diverse walk. The trail is marked. One passes villages where accommodation is available. Maps and guidebooks are available.

  • Hiking Is Good December 2016
  • Rate 10
  • Positive One of the best hikes I've done so far. Deep valleys, rough ocean, cold breeze, hot sun, no people around... I met only a few daily hikers during 5 days. Thanks to omnipresence terraces build in the past the hike has a very special spirit. If I ever happen to be in the Canary Islands again, I'll just go straight to La Gomera
  • Negative The heat could be unbearable during the summer season. I did the hike during the New Year's Eve and even then the sun was crazy hot. Towns at the sea cost can be very touristic
