Enjoy the beauty
to be found in
Guided tours provide a lot advantages over just renting a bike. For one you will learn more about the island, about its history, about the environment, about the culture.
You will connect with someone living on the island that has insights into the life here. This makes for a richer experience. Also it removes the possibility of getting lost (always a good thing). And if there is a mechanical failure the guide will hopefully be able to fix it as opposed to you having to do it.
There are different tours to choose from and often the guide will know which one will suit you best. Besides we personally like to connect with people as opposed to just renting bikes. For us it is a pleasure to meet people from all over the world and it is our privilege to introduce people to such a beautiful place.
Tours usually are 3 to 4 hours long with a break.
(with a few snacks)

This is our own customised tour and it is one of the best. The entire tour is 36 kilometres and takes roughly 4 hours during which we pass through three different valleys. The views change drastically from those of gorgeous valleys and mountains, to reservoirs, to dense verdant forest, to dry red clay, to stunning views of the sea with Teide majestically in the background. For most of the route the tour rides on small asphalt country side roads with very little traffic. But upon entering the park it becomes a dirt track. This tour has a bit of everything including a stop at Mirador de Abrante which is the maybe the most visited lookout point on the island.
This tour passes through the highest part of the island. The views can be stunning. From the lookout point of Alto de Garajonay on a clear day you can see 4 of the 7 Canary Islands. This tour can be a good option for the afternoon to catch the sunset in the west with the island of La Palma in the distance. The trail also passes through the national park and the beautiful laurissilva forest that captures moisture from the air and provides water to the island.
We have 4 Lapierre 400Wh mountain E-bikes. With a bit of instruction you will find the bikes very easy to use.
* A 150€ credit card deposit will be taken per bike and will refunded within 5 days of the rental
to cover any damages to the bike that may take place outside of normal wear and tear.
Picking up and dropping off
For the picking up and dropping off the bikes the price will vary depending on the distance traveled from San Sebastián but it will be somewhere between:
Masks and Snorkels Rental
We also have masks and snorkels available for renting for
Non Guided Tours
You have the option of just renting a bike and doing the tour yourself. We have customised maps prepared that you are welcome to use.
You will receive the map via a text message and it operates using google maps to hopefully keep you from getting lost. Depending on which tour you select we will likely still need to meet you and drop off and pick up the bikes. If you have a van big enough to transport the bikes without having to take off the front wheel you are welcome to do so. There are also a couple of tour options that start from San Sebastián that don’t require the use of a vehicle.
Non-Guided Tours out of San Sebastián
These tours are for the average person to enjoy. The rides follow the principle roads and are not dangerous. The rider does need to be attentive to vehicles.
Both of these tours are can be done comfortably in 4 hours or less and if you want you can do both in one day by renting the bikes for 8 hours for just 10€ more.

La Laja is the uppermost village located in the barranco that starts just outside of the San Sebastián and it could be one of the most beautiful places on the island. The ride follows along the main road and as you climb up you pass through a number of small communities. The higher you go the more beautiful it gets. If you continue beyond La Laja the road turns from asphalt to dirt and it leads you to the highest water reservoir in the barranco which is bordered by a Canary pine forest and a great place to have a picnic. There are also walking trails that continue on from this point. It’s all downhill on the way back. This tour takes anywhere from 2 – 4 hours depending on your own rhythm and is roughly 25km.
To the beach! This is another great option for a bike ride leaving San Sebastián. This ride takes you along a windy road that follows the coast line. The views of Teide are marvellous. A 7.5 km ride takes you to a beautiful cove beach (playa Ávalo). This is great out of the way beach to spend some time swimming, reading, snorkelling and picnicking. It’s a light and easy ride on an E-bike and a very pleasant way to pass a day (it is still hilly and you can get some exercise if you want depending on how much you engage the battery). You can continue on from Playa de Ávalo to the geographically remarkable place of Punta Llana. The road turns from asphalt to dirt and follows along a line of spectacular sea cliffs that feature the interesting volcanic rock layering that can be found on the island. Here you will find signs warning of the potential of falling rocks and that you can proceed but at your own risk. The dirt road then winds down to a remote hermitage that is steeped in legend and is also the sanctuary of the Virgen de Guadalupe who every 5 years is picked up by a flotilla of boats and taken on a tour to all the communities of the island for the Lustrales celebration. The beach at Punta Llana is a sandy beach but the sea conditions are often not very good in this area and is not recommended for swimming and bathing. It is remarkable place and worth visiting. Our recommendation, should you choose to go to Punta Llana, is to go there first and then on the way back stop at Playa de Ávalo for a swim and a picnic.
islandtime EZ Bikes is located right in the heart of the port town of San Sebastián. La Gomera is a notoriously mountainous island and unless you are serious biker it is not such friendly place for your average holiday traveler who wants to do some biking. There is hardly a flat spot to be found. Electric bikes provide the perfect way to see this beautiful island and not die from exhaustion.
We have no desire to become a big bike rental company. We like being a low impact, small business that offers a good service to people wanting to enjoy the beauty to be found here. We respect the island and the community here and it is our hope to make a positive contribution to both.
