Hiking maps & smartphone app
We recommend using a smartphone map app such as Viewranger (www.viewranger.com/de). This free app is available for all common smartphones (including Android and iOS) and the map material for La Gomera can be downloaded there for free. This means that the map material is also available without a data connection and can also be used abroad without roaming costs.
On our website we use map material from OpenCycleMaps because both contour lines and hiking trails (dashed) are shown there. With Viewranger, the same map material can be accessed in the app settings, so that you get the same map layout as on our website. In addition, our GPS route downloads can be imported into the Viewranger app!
Due to numerous requests, we have created several instructions for the Viewranger app. For reasons of clarity, we have now moved this to another website. All instructions for the Viewranger app can now be found here: www.wanderndeluxe.de/category/gps-wandern-smartphone-apps/viewranger.
If you want to use a printed hiking map in addition to the smartphone map app or instead, you now have the option of purchase a PDF hiking map for La Gomera.
In addition to the online maps shown here on this website, we also offer all routes as free downloads in GPX file format. The GPX file format is a standard file format for route information and waypoints. It can be opened, for example, with the Viewranger smartphone app that we recommend (Link: Viewranger).
