Climbed up Mount Christoffel with friends. Quite a climb but absolutely worth it! You really need to climb the last part so not so good to take young children, I would say. Bring enough water and make sure you go very early in the morning (when it opens) before the sun gets too hot.

We arrived at 10 on Sunday morning. After paying the entrance fee, the ticket lady gave us a token for the car entry and told us she will give us another token for the other side of the park after we come back. It's a one way loop driving to tail head. The road itself is up and down with... More

We read some Information online and decided to go for a hike once on the island. We were a little Late That Morning (10 am at visitor Center) and therefore decided to not walk from there up the christoffel (3hour Trip) but Drive into the park first and only walk up the peak (should take one Hour). While not being... More

As you have seen with the other reviews, this is a challenging hike, but the views are amazing and worth it. If you are in shape it will take about 45 minutes to an hour to get to the top, and it is definitely a good workout for the glutes. My wife and I took up the challenge and made... More

This was definitely a great experience, and it is worth it to get up early to arrive at the park before 9:00AM (although it was already sweltering hot at that point). My partner and I were in and out of the park in 2 hrs, including roughly 45 min to get to the top of christoffel from the base, and... More

The Nature was fantastic-not complaints here! The problem was how overgrown the roads were. The plant life consisted mostly of succulents and THORN TREES. These thorn trees aren't being maintained a certain distance from the small one-way road. It's not until you're pretty far into the driving excursion that you start hearing the thorns scraping down the sides of your... More

My wife and I did the car tour of the park. A few words of caution. Bring sunscreen, food and drinks. The driving tour around the mountain takes about 1.5 hours. More if you like to actually hang out and take in the views. The coastal route is a bit longer. Decent views. The roads are tight narrow and require... More

It's about an hour hike to the top and it is a must do. It takes about 45-60 mins if your are in shape otherwise it could take you a lot longer. Bring a lot of water because it is tiring (at least 2 bottles per person). Towards the top you need to start climbing the rocks so make sure... More

We were totally disappointed after our visit at this park because of the followings: there was nothing special to see in the park. The nature you can see along the road is even more beautiful and diverse. Also, the nature looks the same through the whole park. Despite these, it is quite expensive. The 2 of us paid 45 goulders...

The place is gorgeous, but the front-desk staff was so slow that there was a long, angry line when we arrived. The climb to the top was beautiful and I especially enjoyed the cacti and bromeliads, but they could have done a better job explaining that the trail is extremely technical - towards the top of the mountain, you're hauling...
