A LaPalma's gold treasure!

Caldera is La Palma's gold treasure. Take a trip and see it inside! I took a tour with Natour from Los Cancajos, and I can recommend it as well.

I liked it. The visitor center in El Paso is nice and staff is helpful on choosing your hike. We decided not to hike down in the caldera but took an advised for hour hike from the punto valencia. It was quite heavy uphill, but gave nice views. If you arrive at the top too late you may miss the... More

We got ataxi to the becoris path, which although sounds a lot at 50 euros per taxi,shared between 5 this is well with it. The 20 minute drive up is nervwewrexking, but thee driver knows the road well, so don't worry. The walk takes you through many different landscapes from forest to gorge. The walk took 4 hours with a... More

Pack loads of water and make sure you're using sun screen before you start hiking - you will walk much further than planned, it is that beautiful. There are a number of possible treks - down in the Gorge to see the multicoloured waterfall and the top trek that will take you to the highest peak. I could easily spend... More

We walked from Mirador La Cumbrecita (you need to pre book a parking space at visitor centre, we booked two days ahead) on the well marked route to Pico Bejenado. You need to wear suitable footwear, take poles if you have them and allow a good 4 hours there and back. It is full of fabulous views on the walk... More

The best viewpoint on the caldera is the Cumbrecita, but there are only 16 parking spaces, with access restricted, so it is essential to reserve a time slot in advance at the visitor centre just outside El Paso. Very definitely worth the hassle. Views are simply stunning and lots of hiking trails for those who feel energetic.

Make this your first point of call when visiting La Palma, just off route LP-3, Santa Cruz - Los Llanos. Good displays of the 4 different eco areas showing flora and fauna. Large 3D model of the whole island showing roads, towns and view points (miradors) really helps to get your bearings and understand how steep roads and trails are.... More

It has been said so many times before but La Palma is famous for it's hiking trails. The Caldera Taburiente offers such a variety wherever you go. We walked down from halfway up the northern slopes down to where the river runs during the winter period. Tip: take a tour with a guide, they can add so much to your... More

There are lots of walks that you can do ... We walked to roque Los Muchachos, Pico Las Nieves, Pico Bejenado .... Wauw!!!! What a splendid views and spectacular landscapes! The walks are not that easy, but our 11 year old daughter was with us. So it's not that hard either.
