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.

If you are on this island, it is a must to visit what seems like "the top of the world ". The views on a clear day are awesome, and one can see as far as the islands of Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hierro. The ride to the top is a little scary because of the windy roads, however,... More

Warning - take advice from locals re walks ! plus walks not well marked at all Our cab driver took us right to the visitors centre in the caldera not the lower level at the main visitor’s entrance! At this one there are zero facilities which was fine as we were prepared. We did the hour circular walk which had... More

Some fantastic walks, viewpoints and information can be accessed from the visitors Centre. We went on two different days and on the first we were lucky to get 2 hours in the upper car park. The second time we could only book 1 hour which is not enough. You need to book the car park at least 2 days in... More

The Caldera Taburiente is an enormous volcano that is now an amazing forest. There is lot of trekking that can be done, one of the best is to follow a riverbed (with just some water!) until the Cascata de Colores (Colors Waterfall). Also a visit to the highs of La Palma, Roque de los Muchachos at about 2500 metres is... More

There are many routes and paths. All are for free, but many needs transport to the beginng. We went down from "Los Bresitos" to the end of "Barranco de las Angustias". It is very recommended because we left our car at the end of the route and from there we took a taxi to the beginng. You can drive until... More

You have to make a reservation at the visitarcentre (free of charges) because above there is a limited parking facility. This trail is really beautiful and easy to walk. Spectacular area and views !!

Nowhere n this island is flat! But the way marked trails are well made and say enough to follow. Drive in from Los llanos to the Barranco de las Angustias car park (signposted to Caldera Tabutiente) and walk up the Barranco from there (shorter version but still steep) or take a taxi up to las brecitas and walk down from...
