We can take you there on the fast ferry to the Capital San Sebastian and through the valley of Hermigua towards the Garajonay National Park through the beautiful forest of “El Cedro” which boasts its unique vegetation. At the top of the Island you will have lunch whilst being shown how the locals perform the whistling language called Silbo still taught to this day in schools and which was very useful on the tiered farms on this very elevated terrain.
On our return, descending the Island, we will pass through Chipude and El Cercado and marvel at the impressive Agando rock, also enjoying the history and culture of San Sebastian, viewing the church of Asuncion where Christopher Columbus prayed before his journey for the New World.
