A 10 night running holiday with a difference. This Canary Islands travel experience takes part in La Gomera, in the heart of the Canary Islands and offers the individual the opportunity to take part in activities with a small group of like-minded people and explore the nature of this beautiful country. A Canary Islands travel experience like no other, this trip is guaranteed to re-charge your body and open your soul.
What is it?
Your trail running trip and whale watching holiday offers many different activities. When not trail blazing through forests and along ocean paths, we’ll relax with Yoga & Stretching exercises for approximately 30 minutes every day and also enjoy the ocean breeze and the beauty of the island from a different perspective—meet wild whales and dolphins in a respectful manner during our boat excursions.
Very important: We want to have fun and like to keep "IT" running.
You can expect to encounter Bryde whales and, with a bit of luck, Sperm whales as well as dolphins playing in their natural environment.
Ten nights accommodation in a double bedded self-catering style accommodation in La Gomera. You will have five guided trail running excursions and transfers (roughly 3-4 hours each) incl. one warm up run in Valle Gran Rey.
You have the choice of two massages, either a Hawaiian Lomi Lomi or Sport massage. Four yoga stretching exercises and travel organisation and guidance throughout your journey, as well as two whale-watching excursions, lasting 3-4 hours each.
You will also have access to various services like renting snorkel equipment and parasols and free access to all our information and video evenings about the marine life encountered, as well as filtered drinking water.
