  • Very beautiful virgin forest. A wonderful of Earth. There are views that are breathtaking. If you come in la Gomera please don't miss the park you will not be disappointed
  • Tranquil national park, often chilly and damp due to its altitude.
  • An exceptional natural sanctuary for the unique laurel Silva. With mountainous and tropical climate conditions, allowing mystic trees to grow on this volcanic piece of land
  • A wonderful forest, Misty, cloudy and mysterious, walking and trekking the forest is a treat to one's self, the heavenly sounds of different birds create a environment where one only wants to listen these musical sounds.
  • A true must see while visiting the island. There's a ton of hiking trails through the park, so you can experience to the full extend the mystical laurel forest, lookouts to the Tenerife, La Palma and El Hiero, dramatic views of the numerous ravines. We were 6 adults during our vacation and each of us loved the park very much!
