Great place to walk around pine forests on this volcanic island. They are well organised trails and you cannot fail to admire the scenery. Take decent boots with you as some of it is rough going but the paths are not too steep but at altitude

Great walks in the green mountains. Sensational landscapes of loose forest and rocks. Some paths are very narrow and cut through steep slopes - not recommended for families with children under 10. Must be great to visit in a hot day due to lots of shades from the trees.

you need to book the parking place online on the website of this national park. Easy, free of charge. You have to print the booking plates, however this can be done in the information centre at the entrance to the National Park.

Museum at the entrance is a great introduction to La Palma and La Caldera de Taburiente - strongly recommended

You have to prebook a parking space as parking is very restricted. If, like us, you don't want to plan your week too much in advance and just want a taste of the inside of this national park, turn up at 4pm and you can get access no problem via the visitor centre near El Paso. We did a round walk for an hour and saw some lovely views. We had previously had no trouble parking up at the rocque muchachos and seen the caldera from the rim at the top.

You can visit the national park at several places and make small or long walks at the park.

We visited Roque de las muchochos in the north. This is the highest point of the island (it may be cold, so bring a sweater) and walked around the crater. Beautifull sights.

We also went to La Cumbrecita at the south of the park. You have to get a license (which is free!) at the visitors centre. This is needed, because the parking space is small. You have to tell how long you will be staying. I advice a two hour minimum if you want to take a small walk around. If you are a real hiker, well... take some more time!
Beautifull to look in the crater 1000 m. down!
There were some "Miradors" (viewing points) where you have a stunning view of the crater, the rocks, the birds, the threes..

We were worried that the clouds would spoil the scenery but glad we didn't let it stop our trip. Amazing scenery and great walking.
