What you'll do

We will meet early in the morning at the Zona Recreativa Laguna Grande. This meeting point is in an easy access location. We will explain the route and any potential difficulties, safety measures and the correct use of electric bikes and their batteries. From there we will set off on a route of approximately 3,5 hours that runs through the spectacular landscapes of La Gomera, both inside and outside the boundaries of the Garajonay National Park, where we can enjoy the green forest and the incredible views from its viewpoints. Along the route there will be several stops to rest, relax, explain interesting facts about the island, have a picnic and take some great photos. The route will end back where it started in Laguna Grande, where we will relax over a cold drink or a beer in a local bar/restaurant in the area.

After a few years working in both International Cooperation and Volunteering, I discovered La Gomera and decided to stay. I have now been here for more than 6 years. From this small island in the Atlantic Ocean, I work teaching Spanish to students from all over the world through videoconference. I love working with people from all over the world and teaching the Spanish language and culture. In my free time I do all kinds of sports and outdoor activities, from hiking to scuba diving, but my real passion is riding a mountain bike to all corners of the island.

Where you'll be

Due to its steep geography, just few people dare to discover the secrets of the island on a bike. Thanks to the electric support of our bikes we will make this experience possible for everybody and we will discover paths and tracks little traveled by walkers. We will see creeks, hidden hermitages, unique trees and little-traveled towns where we will discover the local way of life, anchored in time and away from tourism

Super nice experience. Carlos took very good care of us all the way and brought even water and snacks. We got to see amazing places, had incredible views and for told short stories about the islands. We had a super fun and perfect day out. The bikes were easy to ride and with the little motor everyone is able to get uphill and enjoy the day. I can recommend this to everyone!

We enjoyed our tour a lot, because Carlos knows the area very well. We came at places that we normally not reach. And Carlos explained a lot about the history of the island and about the nature of La Gomera. Carlos gave a good instruction about the e-bikes. Because of the use of e-bikes my girlfriend and I could do the same sportive effort and reached the same speed. It was our first experience with e-bikes, but it didn't feel uncomfortable.

Carlos showed fantastic local knowledge and tailors each ride depending on the weather and the people on the ride. Can't recommend him highly enough.
