Planning your next trip to La Gomera? If you're thinking of a winter escape, why not come and visit the island while it's carnival season?
The City Council of San Sebastián de La Gomera usually organizes events throughout the month of December dedicated to Christmas activities. An intense program of festivities begin at the start of December, usually with the celebration of "Noche en Blanco".
This month Valle Gran Rey in La Gomera will join the celebrations for Fiestas del Carmen with a maritime procession, as well as musical acts with different bands and groups.
Every island or the Canaries has its own carnival season and La Gomera is no exception to this rule. Although the parties are not as big as in Tenerife or Gran Canaria, they still attracted a good number of participants, both tourists and locals.
