The Canary Islands, also named since ancient times as the Lucky Islands or Champs Elysees. The Canary Islands are composed of 7 unique islands: Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro. They house one of the greatest riches in ecosystems around the world: dunes, forests, volcanoes, starry skies and above all, beaches. Black, blonde, red or white sand beaches. In addition of good weather all year round, ideal for outdoor activities.

We will travel to the Island of La Gomera, known as the Magic Island. It is a Biosphere Reserve and also has a rich biodiversity of flora and fauna, being many species endemic. Our tour is immersed for a few days in the "Garajonay National Park", a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It boasts of having a unique ecosystem in the world. Specifically, the laurisilva forest is a prehistoric mass of vegetation native from the Macaronesian region that covered the tropics millions of years ago and has been preserved on the island thanks to its mild climate.

As a main dish we will taste the typical cuisine of the Canary Islands, rich in variety and high quality.
