Begin with a short transfer to start your choice of walks. The shorter option takes off in ascent from Las Casetas, then goes downhill on steep coastal terrain with fab views El Teide's volcanic silhouette. The longer route leads to splendid vistas at Degollada de Peraza then moves toward the island's stunning southeast coast. Some sections traverse high terrain with spell-binding views, but paths are reassuringly way-marked and well-maintained. Back down at sea level, pause for a paddle at the beach, an ideal way to end an ideal week on La Gomera.
