Isla de la Gomera Off The Beaten Path: 18 reviews and 21 photos
The most amazing of our walk in the ancient forest in the National Park of Garajonay were the very old moss cloaked trees with the most fantastic forms, standing in the swirling mist. There are sixteen of varieties of laurel trees, but there are also Canary willows and Canary holly.
The ancient laurel forest is like a forest from another world of time. Around 2 million years ago, when ice ages wiped out, laurel forest covered most of the Mediterranean regions.
Climate changes had less effects on the Canaries, allowing remnants of this dense forest to survive on islands like la Gomera.
