Ferries to El Hierro

El Hierro is the smallest of the Canary Islands, lying south west of its more well-known neighbors. It has been nicknamed 'Meridian Island' and it is situated in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa. There is 1 port in El Hierro. Valverde port is located on the north coast of the island, with 6 weekly sailings from Los Cristianos.

El Hierro's remote location and cliff-lined shores once earned it the reputation of being the 'island at the end of the world', until Christopher Columbus' famous voyage of 1492 put paid to such claims.

The delight of arriving at El Hierro by ferry is not to be missed. Ferry crossings operate most days sailing from Los Cristianos port on the neighboring island of Tenerife to Valverde on El Hierro. Tenerife itself is well connected to the rest of the Canary Islands and mainland Spain as well as featuring two airports so should be used as a base for onward travel to El Hierro.
