The Canary Islands are a true paradise on earth that encompasses seven main islands, including La Palma. Join me on this hiking adventure to explore this unique place in the Atlantic Ocean.

Considered a bridge between America, Africa and Europe, the Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago. And over this trip, we will unveil the beauty of one of its most prominent islands: La Palma. So we’ll explore its network of intriguing paths and mesmerizing trails.

La Palma has an extensive territory with varied types of terrain. Hence we will live a different adventure every day.

We will walk around the Natural Reserve of Las Nieves, uncovering the most enchanting forests of Canarias. There, the sceneries that will surround us, will be simply hypnotizing, with clear skies above us, and a breathtaking sunset from the top of the Pico de la Cruz Mountain.

Also, we’ll visit marvellous cliffs and hills, that form part of the National Park of Caldera de Taburiente. Then, we will trek across the most impressive volcanic craters and geological formations at the Cumbre Vieja natural reserve. After which, we will hike through the dazzling flats of Fuencaliente.

Moreover, the weather in La Palma is warm and gentle all year round. The breeze from the ocean will accompany us all throughout our journey. And the abundance of trees and local flora will cover our paths with fresh scents and nice shades.

What’s more, we will get to visit different villages, and try the local delicacies, as well as experience the hospitality of the people that inhabit La Palma.

So don’t hesitate, pack your bags and request to book this trip. I promise it will be an unforgettable adventure.
