Get acquainted with some of Gomera's most interesting sights.
You'll head north to the agricultural valley of Hermigua, famous for its banana plantations. Here, the small, enchanting village of Agulo awaits you. Surrounded by a massive basalt wall almost a thousand feet tall, Agulo offers a breathtaking view of the nearby island of Tenerife (weather permitting).
Next up, you'll pass through Las Rosas village on the outskirts of Garajonay National Park. This area showcases the history of how La Gomera Island was formed. The park offers a landscape of slopes clad in subtropical laurel forest, surprising rocky outcroppings, and the Garajonay formation itself -- a spur and plateau that rises to 4,869 feet above sea level. The thermophile forest vegetation found in this protected area was once plentiful, but disappeared from the Mediterranean during the Ice Ages of the Quaternary era.
Before returning to the ship, you will stop at Agando for a glimpse of the magnificent Los Roques -- a landscape of eroded basalt formations of volcanic origin.
