Volcanic mountains, ancient misty forests, and balmy days by the ocean—welcome to La Gomera, the hidden, crowdless gem of the Canaries. This holiday season, consider soaking up the sunshine on this enchanting island west of Tenerife with other venturesome women! This subtropical destination has it all—from hiking trails winding through thick swathes of lush green to pastel-hued coastal villages lined with palm trees. Some say that La Gomera is an island lost in time, but everything it has to offer is very much in vogue. Spend one or two serene weeks in this Atlantic paradise and spend your time well—on hikes along dramatic cliffs or afternoons in the spa, visits to a national park or nights spent gazing at the stars—with a glass of wine. Cheers! 

  • Go on a whale watching tour on Christmas or New Year!

  • Roam in a misty cloud forest protected by UNESCO

  • Unwind in a spa and savor local palm honey and Malvasia wine

dep about Walking Women on Tripadvisor

From the little I have experienced on my holiday with WW, I can see people and places are carefully selected, and held to a high standard with prices that remain almost affordable for all; curated to make the guest at ease at all times wether in the intinerary of the walks or the destination hotel/B&B stay. As a solo traveler I’m only sorry I didnt discover it sooner 🙂

Lovely walks great company

      • The cost does not decrease as the group grows. 
      • The minimum number needed for this tour to run is usually 4 women. However, it’s also possible to run the tour with smaller groups if participants cover the extra cost required for it to operate. This will usually be discussed between you and your guide 6 weeks prior to the tour start date.

    Hiking retreat in La Gomera can be arranged for larger groups. Contact us to make arrangements.

    Min. age requirements:

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.

      • If Client cancels the Booking anytime prior to ninety (90) calendar days in advance of the trip contemplated by the booking, Client is entitled to a refund or moving the credit to another holiday, minus the deposit. It is not possible to refund the deposit as it covers costs that have already been incurred.
      • After that deadline, Client is not entitled to any refund. Any reimbursable expenses arising out of the Booking incurred by Guide prior to the date of cancellation (including but not limited to plane tickets, car rental payments, and lodging or transportation fees) are non-refundable as soon as they are incurred by the Guide. However, the Guide will discuss options with the Client regarding the possibility of reselling the Client’s place.
      • If Client has to cancel the trip due to COVID-19 infection, the Guide will refund Client’s money or transfer it to another trip.

    If you are not able to arrive precisely on day 1 or on time, let your guide know! They will gladly help you with anything and can make arrangements to extend your holidays (for example, adding a night in Tenerife before traveling on to La Gomera).
