September 2014 Newsletter

Autumn has arrived in Ireland with a vengeance! Definitely time to start thinking of moving South again. Mid month we're off to Praia da Luz for a family wedding so looking forward to sunshine & warmth as an appetizer for our return to La Gomera in October.

The first week of our new season runs from 19th November but for those thinking of a pre-Christmas break I have to tell you we're already fully booked although we're always glad to help with accommodation and transfer arrangements even if you don't want to or can't walk with our scheduled groups.

Next availability as we speak is in January when we have two weeks commencing 7th and 21st. Solo travelers please note that in January if you book for our Premium Package based in 4 starHotel Jardin Tecina then you will enjoy a complimentary "Confort" room and no supplementary single occupancy premium!

Bookings for winter 2014-15 have been brisk and well ahead of previous years at this time so if you have particular dates in mind please get in touch as the schedule is filling up rapidly and places are limited with our season finishing at the end of March.

From the UK there are good connections with Easyjet from Manchester (£170.98 return) & Gatwick (£98.98 return) as well as many other options from various destinations with low-cost carriers including Ryanair from Stansted £123.90. If the flight dates/times don't exactly suit our transfers then we can help you plan at small additional cost to spend additional time in Tenerife or La Gomera to tie in with our scheduled groups.

For Dublin travelers Ryanair have changed their flight schedule for the coming year and now depart at the much later time of 14:05 which is good news for those who don't like an early start but bad news for our walkers as it arrives too late to catch the ferry to La Gomera! So if you're planning on travelling from Dublin for the coming season we recommend you fly out from Dublin on the Tuesday afternoon with Aer Lingus, stay overnight in one our luxurious Diamond Resorts apartments in Tenerife (special rate €70 for two persons sharing) and join our group the following day for onward travel to la Gomera. Returning you have the option to fly on the Wednesday evening with Ryanair or stay another night in La Gomera or Tenerife & return on Thursday with Aer Lingus. Either way we can accommodate you. 

So what's new for 2014-2015??.....well we've kept to the same tried and tested basic format which has brought so much pleasure to so many people over the past 4 years. We have moved our Popular package to a new location still in Playa de Santiago about 5 minutes walk from the seafront promenade. Very nice apartments run by the friendly Liz and Elena, they are modern & pleasant each with access to a South-facing terrace and partial sea views.

Secondly in response to feedback from our Premium package clients who have expressed a desire for a little more flexibility to free up a few evenings for eating outside the Hotel Jardin Tecina in some of the lovely little village restaurants, our standard package next season includes 5 nights half-board with 2 nights B&B and we will continue to hold the price the same for a further year.

Increasingly we find ourselves making travel arrangements for holiday makers and independent walkers who want to avail of our hassle-free service and excellent value in accommodation & transfers to La Gomera. Please do contact us for a quote if you have requirements outside our scheduled weeks.

Best Regards

Andy & Paddy

June 2014 Newsletter

 

Summer is upon us and bookings for our fifth season are well ahead of previous years so looks like it will be a busy winter for us in La Gomera. Our new schedulewill start on 19th November and run through to early April 2015. Our weeks run from Wednesday to Wednesday to take advantage of lower cost flights from the likes of Ryanair & Easyjet (well it usually works out that way!)

I just had a quick look at flights to Tenerife for November & some quite good value out there...Ryanair Stansted £85 return! East Midlands £113 Return; Glasgow £123 return. Easyjet continue their schedule from Gatwick £105 return & Manchester £167 return.

For Dublin travelers Ryanair have changed their flight schedule for the coming year and now depart at the much later time of 14:05 which is good news for those who don't like an early start but bad news for our walkers as it arrives too late to catch the ferry to La Gomera! So if you're planning on travelling from Dublin for the coming season we recommend you fly out from Dublin on the Tuesday afternoon with Aer Lingus, stay overnight in one our luxurious Diamond Resorts apartments in Tenerife (special rate €70 for two persons sharing) and join our group the following day for onward travel to la Gomera.

As many of you already know the past season was very busy and sorry to those of you who were disappointed by lack of availability. Please book early to ensure you get the dates you want and also avail of lower cost flight prices.

Increasingly we find ourselves making travel arrangements for holiday makers and independent walkers who want to avail of our hassle-free service and excellent value in accommodation & transfers to La Gomera. Please do contact us for a quote if you have requirements outside our scheduled weeks.

Paddy & I want to thank all of our clients whether you have come once, twice or even three times not only for your business but also for your company, friendship and good humour which has brought us so much pleasure over the past years.

April Newsletter....New schedule published & open for bookings

  Gomera Walking  

Hi Folks

We are very pleased to announce the new schedule for our fifth season, now available for booking. This winter our guided walks will commence on 19th November 2014 and as in previous years most of our weeks will run from Wednesday to Wednesday to avail of the cheaper midweek flights from low cost airlines like Ryanair and Easyjet. 

So what's new for 2014-2015??.....well we've kept to the same tried and tested basic format which has brought so much pleasure to so many people over the past 4 years but faced with a massive 50% increase in rent from last season's apartment provider (think the Hollywood movie business must have gone to their heads!) we have moved to a new location still in Playa de Santiago about 5 minutes walk from the seafront promenade. Very nice apartments run by the friendly Liz and Elena, they are modern & pleasant each with access to a South-facing terrace and partial sea views the move will enable us to keep the price of our Popular Package to a reasonable level.

Secondly in response to feedback from our Premium package clients who have expressed a desire for a little more flexibility to free up a few evenings for eating outside the Hotel in some of the lovely little village restaurants, our standard package next season includes 5 nights half-board with 2 nights B&B and we will continue to hold the price the same for a further year.
