The trip Southern Trails Of La Gomera starts from Los Cristianos and ends in San Sebastian. It is a walking trip that takes 8 days taking you through Playa De La Guancha, San Sebastian, Valle Gran Rey and 4 other destinations in Spain. Southern Trails Of La Gomera is a self-guided trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Shorter walking days exploring the southern trails of La Gomera. The variety of the landscapes that you will see in such a small area is amazing and Gomeran hospitality is great. The shorter walking days will give you the opportunity to do other activities such as relax by the sea, snorkelling, kayaking or whale watching. These can be arranged when you are staying at Santiago. On day 2, there is a coastal walk to a quiet pebble beach. You will then transfer to start a walk in the mountains, largely descending to the sunny coast at Santiago via the beautiful hamlet of Benchijigua, poised dramatically under the Roque Agando - the mini Matterhorn of La Gomera. The following day, either relax by the sea or take one of the two walks on offer. On the fifth day, with picnic in hand you will be transferred to a point where you can easily ascend through the island's Laurisilva forest to the summit of Garajonay (1487m) with potentially great views of Tenerife, before dropping down to the village of Chipude and our simple mountain hotel. The following morning, you can transfer to the village of El Guro from where you follow the rough watercourse up to the Arure Waterfall and then descend down to Valle Gran Rey. After a night and morning, catch the bus to San Sebastian, check into your hotel and do the short historical walk around the town centre before enjoying your last dinner. La Gomera has a good infrastructure of roads, amenities and services, including good restaurants and small family run hotels.

“I LOVED THIS HIKE! I was consistently challenged, awed, inspired, impressed, and smitten with every meter of this TREK! I would challenge it all again.....with a different regimen of preparation. The accommodations were wonderful and perfectly arranged. Our hosts and hostesses were consistently accommodating and fun and knowledgeable of things both near and far. The breakfasts hearty and made to order. The luggage transfer without a hitch. The route notes a nice complement to the "Trailblazer Guide".”

“Our North Cornwall walk was long anticipated and met our
family's every expectation. The Cornwall landscape and the
Southwest Coast Path are spectacular. The ports and
villages are charming and welcoming with lovely shops and
restaurants. Our accommodations were for the most part first
rate. The route was well marked and the materials helpful.
Sherpa Expeditions was professional and responsive
throughout. We are happily planning our next walking
adventure with Sherpa.”

“The accommodation and breakfasts were good at all locations. The evening meals at the Pension Selini in Vitsa was outstanding and that provided at Voula's Restaurant in Tsepelovo was the poorest but adequate. Buying phone cards are unnecessary as there were a few phone boxes along the route and mobile phone coverage was very good. The service of the Ground Handler was excellent. They were in daily contact to update on weather conditions and provide other information on that days hike.”
