News from La Gomera

January Group Gomera WalkingThe New Year got off to a great start here in la Gomera with fabulous weather and, as a result of the late autumn rains, the colours in the mountains are stunning. Our January groups have enjoyed some marvellous walking in above average temperatures under blue skies which look likely to continue on into February at least.

Spring is definitely in the air with almond and other fruit trees glorious in their white & pink blossoms along the mountain paths while the next several weeks promise a host of brilliant colour as the echiums, aeoniums and sonchus throw up wonderful arrangements of flower and colour.Gomera Walking

We still have availability in March and early April and some very good news for solo travellers... Hotel Jardin Tecina have agreed to waive their "single occupancy" charge for our last premium package which runs from 3rd - 10th April 2013.

Regrettably that will be our final package for our present winter season so should you feel like a sunshine break from the winter storms, take a look at our remaining schedule and hopefully we'll see you in La Gomera in 2013.

Very Best Regards
Andy & Paddy

Magnificent spring likely in La Gomera

 Smelling the roses with Gomera WalkingHeavy rains last month have worked wonders and turned our Island green again giving it a lush appearance not seen since winter 2010. Those who have visited La Gomera in the past would have been amazed to see the torrents of water flowing down the usually-bone-dry barancas. All this augurs well for a glorious spring and all the myriad of colour which that will bring.

Work continues a pace in the fire-damaged areas and it is heartening to see new growth sprouting from many of the near dead trees. I read on Monday that Gomera firefighters were awarded a prestigious Gold Award for their heroic efforts back in August to save lives, property and livlihoods. Well deserved.

We have added a number of new walks to our itineraries including for the first time a "there and back" walk which starts at Ermita de Guadalupe and across the baranca to Tequergenche giving some stunning views of Valle Gran Rey, El Hierro and La Palma. We have also walked a number of times through the village of El Cedro where we have been fortunate to be able to sit in glorious sunshine over a relaxing lunch of watercress soup served in hand-made wooden bowls with gofio and mojo sauces.

Our next availability is on Premium Package from 6th - 13th February 2013 based in the beautiful 4 star luxury Hotel Jardin Tecina and we still have some places left on our Popular Package 23rd - 30th January 2013. Low cost flights are available to Tenerife from several UK & Irish cities. As an example Ryanair is currently quoting €170 for return from Dublin and Easyjet £142 from Manchester.

If you have some flexibility and want to take a few extra days in the sun we can help you find suitable flights to tie in with our week's walking package.

Please remember that in addition to our scheduled Premium and Popular packages we can also arrange transfers, accommodation for you whether you want to do a few days walking or not. Just let us know your requirements and we'll work up a quote for you.

Valle Gran Rey from new Chipude walkWhatever your preference we hope you'll choose la Gomera for your winter sunshine break.

Best Wishes

Ryanair publish Dublin & Cork winter schedule

Gomera Walking

Michael O'Leary CEO of RyanairGood news in that Ryanair have now put up their winter schedules for Dublin - Tenerife and are showing 3 flights per week as low as €132 return! There is also a weekly flight from Cork for a little over €100 return.
As yet no UK - Tenerife flights showing for whatever reason but we'll continue to badger Michael O'Leary and let you know when the situation changes.

Ryanair delay announcement of winter schedules for Canaries!!

Ryanair delay release of new flight schedules for 2012 - 2013

 

Like Gomera Walking 2012 - 2013: Ryanair delay release of winter schedules to the Canaries!! on Facebook share on Twitter

How I hate Ryanair and the way they keep you in suspense.....with barely 5 months to go they have not yet released their new schedules for Canary Island destinations including Tenerife South. It seems that Canary Island airports are trying to increase charges and Ryanair are strongly resisting these increases (good for us passengers if they succeed but disastrous if the deadlock continues and Ryanair end-up cancelling their Canary Island flights!!) We will continue to monitor this situation and let you know of any change.

Meanwhile Easyjet continue their excellent schedule with flights ex London Gatwick  from £120 return and Manchester from £173.

If you're travelling from Ireland Aer Lingus have flights from €190 but they run on Tuesdays and Thursdays so you may want to look at taking a few extra days in the sunshine and we can help you with hotels etc in order to meet up with our scheduled groups.

Other airlines with flights to tenerife from the UK are Monarch (Manchester fits our schedules but also flights ex Birmingham, East Midlands, Gatwick and Luton). Thomas Cook also offer weekly flights to Tenerife and if travelling from Belfast this is an alternative to Aer Lingus.

Our winter schedule starts on 14th November with our premium package based in the luxurious Hotel Jardin Tecina.

New for rhis season we are offering more customization possibilities where you can pick your own dates and also if you want to come to La Gomera independently of us we can still help you with accommodation, ferries and/or transfers and save you money. Let us give you a quote. Click here for details.

Have a great summer & hope to see you in La Gomera this winter.

Best Wishes
