Only flights from the other Canary islands land on Gomera. Most European flights come into Tenerife (though arrival via Gran Canaria is also possible) – whichever route you take, flight times from central European countries are around 4-5 hours. Tenerife has two airports: Tenerife North Airport/Los Rodeos (TFN) and Tenerife South Airport/Reina Sofia, the latter being significantly closer to Los Cristianos from where the ferries leave for La Gomera.
From the northern airport it is possible to catch a connecting flight with BinterCanarias to Gomero’s island airport at Playa de Santiago – flight time 40 minutes. To book a BinterCanarias flight, telephone: +34 902 391 392 or go to:
The airline »Canary Fly« operates flights between Gran Canaria and La Gomera (several times a week) – ideal for tourists who want to do a bit of island-hopping or who wish to use Gran Canaria as their arrival and departure point.

Fred Olsen operate ferries to all Canary islands. For those arriving via Gran Canaria we recommend taking a connecting flight with CanaryFly or BinterCanarias as continuing your journey by ferry can be extremely long and tiring.
Most European flights land at Tenerife South Airport and the onward journey can be made either by taxi (approx. 20 minutes at a cost of around EUR 20) or, more cheaply, on a “Titsa” bus (no. 111). Journey time by bus is around 30 minutes and the bus stop is around 1km from the ferry port. On request, the bus driver will sometimes stop right at the ferry port. For timetable information, go to:
On arrival at the ferry port, tickets can be bought from »Fred Olsen« or »Naviera Armas«.
Since september Fred Olsens "Benchi Ecpress" connects San Sebastian de La Gomera, Playa Santiago and Valle Gran Rey. Also Naviera Armas has a new connection: between Los Cristianos and Valle Gran Rey.
Please go to the respective company websites (see below) to check latest ticket prices and timetables and always arrive 30 minutes early as the ferries have been known to depart before their scheduled time.
Guests arriving in Gomera’s pretty capital, San Sebastian, can choose one of three ways to reach their holiday accommodation:

or by booking a hire car to meet them at the port. We can help you to organise this as we have very good contacts with a local car-hire company who supply well-maintained vehicles at very fair prices.
