Gomera Walking
 


Hi << Test First Name >>

 
February is the shortest month of the year and this year it has been  full of spectacular events. The weather has been incredible. We have had winds that were so strong it looked as though the palm trees were being blown flat but no they are very resilient and are still standing.
 
Torrential rain has filled the barrancos ( ravines ) and at last the reservoirs are practically full again. One day we saw three water spouts just off the coast at Santiago - a truly amazing spectacle.
 
At last the weather has settled down and we are able to see the benefits of the rain. The mountains are green, the flowers are full of buds and the almond trees have blossom. Throughout February we had 3 walking groups and were able to walk every day. This is just one of the wonderful things about our small island. If the weather is not so good in one area,  just around the coast or on the other side of the mountain you can have perfect conditions.

The last week of February is traditionally carnival time in Santiago. This is a very special time for the local people. Entire families get involved from the very young to the very old. Each year has a theme.  This year the theme was Asia. The parents, the children and the schools work so very hard - the  aim being to make this year's carnival better than last!  It's a joy to watch, the colours, the atmosphere and  the children's faces as they parade in the procession. The result was wonderful. 

Good news for those who didn´t book a holiday for this year - yet, we still have availability is as follows: 4-11 April .... 7 places available Premium (zero single occupancy) & Popular To book use our on-line form here....but please check with me for update on availability before arranging flights.
 
Don't forget that if you can't find suitable flights on a Wednesday (you need to arrive by 12:30 PM to avail of our transfers) then a good alternative is to fly in on Tuesday and stay over in Diamond Resorts where we can offer special price of €70 for a one bedroom self-catering apartment. These are spacious and well equiped.   We come pick you up on Wednesday morning, at no extra cost, to join the rest of the group for onward transfer to La Gomera.

Looking for sunshine on your skin - La Gomera is your destination.

Best wishes

Jesús & René
