Exploring La Gomera – About Us

Hello and welcome to Exploring La Gomera, your ultimate guide to this spectacular island. We’re Kevin and Jill, a couple who divides their time between the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the island of La Gomera.

Many visitors are drawn to better-known Canary Islands, such as neighbouring Tenerife. However, we’re here to show you that La Gomera has a unique charm. This island offers the same mild climate and breathtaking scenery but with a quieter atmosphere, fewer crowds, and a more relaxed vibe.

So, what can you expect from our website? Our articles are written by ourselves and based on our research and experiences. La Gomera is our winter home, which means we can monitor changes and keep the website updated

Exploring La Gomera will inspire you with things to do, places to visit, and activities to try out. However, we will take it further by sharing in-depth insights and practical tips rooted in our extensive firsthand experience.

Our journey to La Gomera began with an extended stay a few years ago. We were drawn to the mountains and the mild climate, promising respite from the harsh Canadian winters.

However, we weren’t prepared for the impossibly steep mountains and ravines of this small volcanic island. La Gomera also has a stunning coastline, a warm climate, palm groves, banana plantations and a massive, dense, magical forest protected by UNESCO.

It didn’t take long for us to fall in love with the island and make it a regular part of our lives. La Gomera has become our winter refuge, a second home where we can escape the biting cold of Canada.
