Are you a lover of excursions and outdoor activities? If you stay with Hotel El Duque on the island of Tenerife, you should not miss the opportunity to visit the island of La Gomera.
Doing a day trip to visit La Gomera from Tenerife is totally feasible and even recommended if you want to combine two Canary Islands in the same trip. In fact, both islands are so close to each other that it hardly takes 50 minutes by boat to cover the 40 km. of sea that separates them.
The Fred Olsen company connects the port of Los Cristianos, in the south of Tenerife, with San Sebastián de La Gomera. Each journey lasts about 50 minutes, although you have to be between 30 and 45 minutes before the scheduled time to board. The first ferry leaves at 9 from Tenerife and the last from La Gomera at 5:30 in the afternoon. The price, in January 2018, is 155 euros, round trip, for 2 passengers and a tourism-type car, on the weekend, buying in advance on the web.
