El Hierro  - One of the Canary Islands


El Hierro is one of the seven islands of the Canary Islands which belongs geographically to Africa, politically to the EU and amateur-radio-technical-wise to EA8.

Its is one of the smaller islands and only one daily ferry to Tenerifa and a daily flight with a turbo bi- propellor airplane connects the piece of land with the main island from where people can travel further.

6.000 island inhabitants are left from before the crises started in 2012. More than 10.000 people had their outcome before that time.

Please have a look together with me how beautiful this little island is together with its unique nature.
