“impressive, but mind the wind”
Review of Volcan Teneguia

Volcan Teneguia

Reviewed July 31, 2013

We went there on a beautiful and windy day. The drive on the narrow dirt road and the walk up to the viewing point were both really impressive. The landscape looks like the moon or planet mars. At the top of the Teneguia, we were almost blown away by really strong gusts. I believe this potentially could end badly, so beware of the wind.

Luckily we went on a clear day so the views were fantastic. The paths are wide enough, but uneven which may not be suitable for those with walking problems.

The visitor centre has a lot of information, loos and seating.

We did a Thomsons coach excursion to the Teneguia national park, travelling up through the different belts of vegetation - cacti, pine trees, etc - seeing the ancient lava flows, all of which was most interesting. The guide (Jonas) was excellent and very entertaining. Once at the Roque de los Muchachos, at 2400 m above sea level, we could see the many astronomical observatories high up above the clouds, and took some superb photos. We had various other stops along the way, including the capital Santa Cruz. The journey was full of hairpin bends and rather scary steep drops (just don't think about it!), which was fine for us but might not appeal to everyone. La Palma is a very varied island in terms of landscape and vegetation, and this trip enabled us to see this variety. A great day out.

An interesting and rugged walk up to the rocky part of the crater rim passing assorted rock formations. Easily reached from either Fuencaliente (Los Canarios) or La Faro in under an hour. We were there on a windy day (perhaps 40km/hr) and the short traverse from the first (rocky) peak to the second rounded peak was too windy and standing on the connecting ridge was difficult never mind walking.
