EL Hierro

El Hierro, the westernmost, southernmost, least populated and smallest of the Canary Islands has an atmosphere of end of the world. Declared a biosphere reserve and geopark by UNESCO, this island has been able to protect its natural and cultural heritage. To not lose any of its treasures, you have to walk it along its many paths. This program has been designed to make you discover the interior of the island but also its coastal coastline. The interior is characterized by landscapes of recent volcanism, lush forests, and bucolic rural areas. The very jagged and wild coast was drawn according to the eruptions. The lava flows have sculpted surprising landscapes: sheltered natural pools, basalt columns, arches, islets… The North Coast, where the ocean is often very agitated, is impressive. The south side is generally quiet. Its crystal-clear waters are renowned for being the best diving and snorkeling area in the Canaries.
Plant lovers will be delighted. This island has many endemisms and majestic trees: tortuous junipers whose shape follows the direction of the wind; the "Garoé" which was the sacred tree of the bimbachés; centuries-old pines, giant heather covered with moss ...
With an area of ​​only 270km2, El Hierro is full of astonishing botanical, geological and cultural wealth. This atypical and wild island leaves no one indifferent.
