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...

This was one of the best tours we have ever been on. We were taken all over the Caldera to the gorges that went down to the sea. We walked onto a glass platform and looked down hundreds of feet.

This is such a beautiful area of La Palma, there are so many lovely walks to explore, I don't have a good head heights, but I just had to make myself see this, it is so spectacular.

We went to the national park as part of an excursion booked through Thomson. The views we absolutely breathtaking. What really hit us was the tranquility of being up in the mountains, as well as the views. Would say that visiting the national park is an absolute must for anyone holidaying in La Palma. One note - wear sensible shoes!

maybe don't go on a rainy day as I did, but amazing views, both of the island and into the volcano. The walk is easy. This is a must see, even if your trip is only short
