La Gomera Mountain Path

Threshing FloorWondering if La Gomera is one of the best places in the world for varied hikes.

One of my favourites is the walk from Arure to Valle Gran Rae. You pass by an ancient threshing floor and a derelict farm building. Despite the height, the land is fairly level, before the very steep descent to the sea. I was glad I had my walking poles on the last stretch, the dry stones were like scree.

  1. If you are looking for a wide variety of walking experiences, I don’t think you can beat west Wales. The coast path is going to be extended this year to run from Chepstow to Chester – crossing National trust beaches, wild stretches of coast and great little towns. Should be fun!
