Hiking routes to discover Hermigua step by step

A landscape that allowed the creation and use of the Silbo and the Salto del Pastor, is obviously not easy to walk. But it is precisely this challenge that makes La Gomera so attractive to walk along its paths and routes.

Here is a list of the circular routes that you can make departing from our door and that will allow you to discover Hermigua and it’s surroundings step by step.
