A bit more about the National Park Garajonay…
The Garajonay National Park occupies 10% of the surface of the island and is a must. It has one of the best known samples of laurisilva, a humid forest of varied evergreen species that, in the Tertiary, covered practically all of Europe. A place that was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and that impresses with its beauty and mysticism.
On the route we will discover the secrets of laurisilva, a type of forest that can currently be found on the north side of the Canary Islands, between 600 and 1,400 meters above sea level, except in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. It means “Forest of Laurels”, since most species have similar characteristics to the laurel. You can reach up to 20 different species of trees, among which are the bay and beech, along with lichens, the characteristic mosses that live on the trunks of trees and up to 484 different species of plants. Its origin goes back to the ancient jungles that covered the Mediterranean basin (southern Europe and North Africa) in the Tertiary, some millions of years ago. They arrived in the Canary Islands thanks to the wind, the marine currents and the birds. While changes in the climate of the Mediterranean region made it extinct, in Macaronesia they have been maintained until today thanks to its mild and humid climate.
