Bicycle tours on La Gomera
GPS-supported bike tours around the island - on your own and at your preferred pace.
What are GPS-supported bicycle tours and what do I need for them?
For the younger generation it is nothing new, but many people are initially insecure and think: "This is too complicated for me!" But this is not the case. The only thing you need is a working smartphone with internet access. It is important that the mobile phone has a satellite-based GPS receiver integrated and not only determines the position via mobile phone network. But this is standard nowadays.
And how does it work?
We have filed many individual cycling routes at the renowned supplier "Komoot". You can download the app of "Komoot" for free of charge. And then you have direct access to all bike tours of Gomera Bikes. Then simply select the desired route, press start and you are ready to go. Due to the meter-exact GPS-positioning you can be sure that you will not get off the right route and will always reach your destination safely. And the best thing is: You only pay the rental fee for the bikes, the routes are free of charge!
Can I also book guided bicycle tours with a guide?
In exceptional cases and on request we also offer guided bicycle tours on La Gomera - but only for groups. If you are interested, just send us your non-binding inquiry.

On selected forest trails and slopes, we “experience” our Garajonay National Park, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As we move through the jungle of the island, we cross different climate zones with their very own and always different vegetation zones. At numerous viewpoints there is time to enjoy and take photos. For example, the “Alto de Garagonay” offers us an impressive panoramic view of our and the surrounding islands.
