The most Westerly and most remote of the Canary Islands is a complete contrast to the busy bustle of Tenerife.

Only 25 miles long, the island has an incredible concentration of natural forms, with over 1,000 volcanic craters, magnificent pine forests and juniper trees hundreds of years old and thrashed into grotesque shapes by Atlantic gales.

The high central plateau, a patchwork of green fields divided by dry stone walls could be the West of Ireland. Thousand metre sheer slopes afford magnificent views downward of the sunny sub-tropical paradise below.

To the West is La Dehesa ( the pasture) and a vast sweep of bananas, pineapples, papaya, almonds, avocado figs and of course vines from which the fine “Frontera” wines are produced.

Not surprisingly the islands economy is based on fruit growing, fishing and livestock. And not surprisingly, with no influx of tourists, the islanders are the friendliest of all the Canarians.

For complete relaxation in a “no news, no shoes” unspoilt little island this is it!

“La Isla Bonita” – the Pretty Island, is not pretty, it’s simply gorgeous!

Grandiose forests,verdant valleys, elegant architecture from Spain’s golden age and dramatic volcanic cliffs rising steeply to 2,500m combine to make this a wonderful walking destination.

It’s possible to drive to the summit and enjoy spectacular ridge walks without the upward slog! It is the only island in the archipelago with rivers and streams that flow year round.

* Limited places; trips in April / May only
