We went on an organised trip which included a informative guide within the Grand Tecan, the world's largest infrared telescope. The journey up to the telescope array was long with many hairpin bends but the scenery was stunning, going up through the clouds and surrounded by beautiful Canadian pine trees. We were lucky with the weather at the top... a... More

I will tell you of our experience so you do not make the mistakes we did. We decided to pay a visit to the Taburiente Caldera due to the stunning photos and many reviews that make it sound like a walk in the park. We arrived at the road prior to the official car park where we found a taxi... More

The cloud layer hung around the top of the caldera but even so it was spectacular scenery as we walked around the rim, like teide national park, it was reminiscent of the spectacular US national parks. We only had a short visit on La Palma but I can see why they call it La Isla Bonita.

Take your time - it takes days to get it all under your skin, and it is overwhelming each time you enter, wether through the gorge from Los Lanos, the easy walk from la Cumbrecitta or a walk the crater rim. It is a wonderful unspoiled spot if you like to be one with the nature.

Do take the time to visit the area. The visitor centre at the southern end of the park is very good, and free. The drive up the western side of the volcano, around the northern rim and down the eastern side into Santa Cruz is breathtaking. Allow time for stops to admire the jaw dropping views, but only if you... More

I liked everything about it is spectacular. There are lots of trails for novice and expert hikers.The vehicle access is restricted to certain areas and you have to apply for a place in the visitor center.

We made our reservations for parking at the tourism office in Los Cancajos. You have to print copies of the permit and one copy is for the people at the park. The road to the park is not too bad (paved two lane but windy) and you go through a large tunnel. As on most islands the roads don’t have... More

I would suggest before heading on any hike, stop by the tourist information office to register as the hikes may require registration and a fee. The office offers maps, suggestions for the various trails, restrooms, vending machines, a small interactive center and a movie viewing room of the park offerings. The staff is extremely helpful with all inquiries. There are... More
