The island of La Gomera, with its narrow and deep ravines, steep and rugged mountains, is crisscrossed by a network of trails. These trails were also known as pathways and “caminos reales” (royal roads), used by the inhabitants of the island until the middle of last century to pass through a really difficult area to transit (with animals such as horses and donkeys that carried all sort of loads – straw, cereals, potatoes and other products).
Travelling through those old paths is an option today, to develop the main activity of visitors of La Gomera. The need exchange of goods and communication has given way to the use of this same trails for the enjoyment. They are used nowadays to be in contact with nature and landscape, practicing a healthy exercise while recognizing a territory where many traces of the life and work of older generations of people of La Gomera can be found. Taking us back a few centuries ago.
