The Volcanic Island

La Palma is the most active volcanic island in the Canary Islands, featuring the last eruption in late2021. 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.

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 rainforest 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

Today we can take time out to rest and explore the town at our own pace until dinner time. Delight with the Canary Islands’ wooden balconies, visit the market or enjoy some museums. Enjoy some food and a drink near the beach. And stroll the lovely paved pedestrian streets of Santa Cruz de La Palma.

  • Breakfast & Dinner Included

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. Here we can enjoy a paddle and a picnic lunch before moving on. The second part of the walk takes 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’s 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.

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.
