La Palma Walking

La Palma - Isla Bonita 


Regarded by many as the most spectacular destination in the Canary Islands archipelago, La Palma has the dramatic landscapes combined with an untouched feel which will reward the discerning traveller.
A dramatic mountain spine, running from Roque de Los Muchachos (2426 metres altitude) down the Cumbre Nueva to the Ruta Los Volcanes, splits the island.

Ruta de los Volcanos reopens post-eruption with just a slight rerouting at El Pilar - news 10 May 2022

The steepest island in the world, the deepest crater, the clearest skies: volcanoes you can climb without being shot into orbit; a subtropical forest minus the slimy things slinking up your trouser leg; black beaches, blue seas, high mountains, vegetation that is literally flamboyant, everything linked by 1080 kilometres of waymarked paths; and all virtually untouched by tourism.
If this sounds divine or like some lost paradise, you’re not the first to think so, previous commentators have identified La Palma as the prototype for both the Elysian Fields and Atlantis! The fanciful stuff aside, the island is a walker’s idyll, utterly tranquil, verdant and almost unspoiled.
