The Volcanic Island

La Palma is the most active volcanic island in the Canary Islands, featuring the last eruption in late 2021. Today we discover the latter volcanoes of La Palma. We walk the last section of the south spine of the island from the pretty village of Los Canarios to the candy-striped lighthouse of Fuencaliente on the coast. We head down through the lava fields of San Antonio (1676) and Teneguía (1971) volcanoes where vines flourish in the rich black soil. Many bodegas can be found in this region producing the famous sweet malmsey wine. Old rocks not covered by the last eruptions depict original indigenous carvings.

Caldera de Taburiente National Park

Today we head to Caldera de Taburiente National Park protected since 1954. From Los Llanos de Aridane, we drive a scenic road to Los Brecitos. From there, we plunge into the Canarian pine woods and cross spectacular deep ravines over wooden bridges until we reach the stream of Taburiente, where we can enjoy paddling and our picnic before moving on. The second part of the walk take us down to the bottom of the impressive Las Angustias canyon. On our way, we can admire the iconic Roque Idafe and the colourful Cascada de Colores. Then, it is a walk along the riverbed and a playful jump across the stream. Along the way we also discover how locals collect precious water to irrigate the Valley of Aridane. Once back at the hotel we head out to a local restaurant for dinner.

Day at Leisure in Los Llanos de Aridane

After breakfast, explore on your own the centre of Los Llanos de Aridane and its pedestrian streets. Perhaps learn more about the aboriginal population at the Archaeological Museum. Maybe take an optional excursion: get close to the last volcano of the island with a walk to Tajogaite; or go to Tazacorte and enjoy a boat excursion on the west coast of the island. Then, we drive to Santa Cruz de La Palma, the elegant capital of the island, where we spend the last 4 nights. Breakfast & Dinner included Transfer Time: 45 min  

El Cubo de La Galga

Today we travel to the rugged northeast of the island. Here the Alisios trade winds meet the high mountains of La Palma and carve deep gorges. We follow a shaded path up though a rich Laurisilva rain forest that benefits from countless springs. Giant ferns and mossy rocks cover the ground. Water canals and aqueducts show the human efforts to collect water for the extensive banana plantations on the lower sunny areas and also to send it to the drier south.

Day at Leisure in Santa Cruz de La Palma

  • Breakfast & Dinner

Roque de Los Muchachos (2,426m)

Last walk in La Isla Bonita driving up to the highest point of La Palma, to the spectacular Roque de Los Muchachos viewpoint, 2,426 metres over the sea level. We enter the Roque de Los Muchachos Visitor Centre and pass the shining white buildings of the Astrophysical Observatory, including the world’s largest telescope. From there, we follow the highest path on the island until Pico de la Nieve, usually above the clouds level. We walk along the edge of the jaw-dropping Caldera de Taburiente with its dramatic views and sheer drops.
