Before Europeans discovered America, El Hierro was considered to be the end of the world. Today, this far flung Canary Island is still appealingly remote, a volcanic landscape with friendly, laid-back towns and biodiverse nature. Embrace ecology in a 100 percent sustainable island, where you can dive in dozens of thriving reefs or hike through ancient forests.
Visit the pools of La Caleta to see petroglyphs carved by the Bimbaches, the first residents of the island. El Garoé is an ancient holy tree that was revered by the Bimbaches as a mystical source of fresh water. Spaniards moved here in the 15th century, bringing the island into the Kingdom of Castile.
Explore the museums of the island. Casa de las Quinteras Centro Etnográfico documents life on El Hierro through the centuries, while the Ecomuseo de Guinea takes visitors into a volcanic cave that hides ancient houses.
Hop between the charming towns of the island, each of which offer something different to visitors. Capital city Valverde is perched on the volcanic slopes of the interior and is littered with charming stone buildings. Walk along the dramatic sea cliffs of La Frontera municipality or escape to the rolling farmland of El Pinar. In the towns, stop at a restaurant to enjoy the local specialty of “vieja,” a tropical fish dish.
Experience the dramatic and diverse landscape of El Hierro. Charco Azul is a pearlescent blue pool hidden in underground caves, where visitors can safely swim. Hike through the forests of Frontera Rural Park, climbing up volcanic cones for dramatic views of the island.
Strap on a pair of goggles and go diving in one of 46 dive sites around the island. The ecological outlook of the island leads to unbeatable diving around its fringes. Swim alongside turtles, dolphins and rays in the stunning La Restina Marine Reserve.
Fly to El Hierro from Tenerife on a flight that lasts only 30 minutes. Come in summer for a Canary Islands escape without the crowds that hit Tenerife and Fuertaventura. Spring and fall both offer warm weather with even fewer visitors to this enticingly remote and beautiful island.
