La Estaca, El Hierro


La Estaca, El Hierro Overview

The most southerly of the Canary Islands, El Hierro was once believed to be the end of the world and it remains off the well-trodden tourist path. Still the most unspoilt island in the region, the capital, Valverde (which translates to 'green valley') is only a short journey from the port. Nestling in wooded hills, Valverde is the perfect place to sample some local cheeses or start an invigorating walk through the beautiful pine forests.

Probably the least known of all the Canary Islands, El Hierro is found on the south-western end of the archipelago. A cruise to El Hierro will take you to a unique and remote land.

And when we say remote, we mean remote. Declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve, El Hierro is perfect for anyone who wants to avoid the crowds and traffic and just enjoy the simple pleasures of nature’s beauty.

It’s stark volcanic landscape and craggy coastline of the south and west bathed in transparent waters makes El Hierro a scuba diver’s paradise. Many of its cliffs reach 300 feet in height and form countless bays and pools that are perfect for a refreshing swim.

To the north-west are the fertile areas of the El Golfo valley with its vineyards and plantations and in the centre, dense pine woods.

Constantly bathed in warm spring temperatures, a cruise to El Hierro is perfect anytime of year.
