"La Palma: Paradise for hiking" Isla de La Palma by Pijlmans

Isla de La Palma Travel Guide: 151 reviews and 336 photos

La Palma is an island of contrasts: The green and wet northeast with its laurel forests, the dry south with its volcanoes, the rough coasts...

The island is particularly well equipped for hikes: Many well marked routes can be found across the island. The extreme diversity of the landscape on such a small island ensures that you can walk in a different surrounding day after day.

There are many guides available that describe walks on the island. Besides a good walking guide, it is wise to get a detailed map as well, because the island is subjected to continuous change and paths or marks may have changed after the publication of the guide.

We rented a car so we could explore every corner of the island. The public transport is supposed to be quite good as well though.

The most famous part of the island probably is the Caldera de Taburiente, a huge erosion crater. They say that you have not seen the island unless you spend at least a day in this national park.
