Caldera de Taburiente National Park, La Palma

Categories: National Parks, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Not actually formed by a meteor impact like a crater, Caldera de Taburiente National Park looks the part regardless. It measures 10 km (6 mi) across and 2 km (1.25 mi) deep. It has history, too: the indigenous inhabitants of the Canary Islands, the Guanches, made their last stand here. Both pine and the endangered local Juniper form the park’s forest. You’ll find a dozen or more hiking routes crisscrossing the terrain. As always, bring appropriate clothes, plenty of food and water, and inform the park staff if you’re going to attempt a difficult hike. Caldera de Taburiente National Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, El Paso Edition.

  • Amazing, beautiful, grandiose, the show is well worth efforts to access the roof of la Palma.

  • We got Pilar and others from the Refugio de El on the Vulkan Birigoyo. From here one has incredible views of the volcanoes in the South, the Cumbre Nueva in the North with the adjoining ridges of the Caldera de Taburiente, on the preceding Pico Bejenado, the Valle de Aridane Los Llanos and El Paso and on the coasts on both sides. In good conditions, you can see also the neighbouring islands of Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hiero.

  • A good place to visit! Even if you do not want to spend much time there, do not miss the lower path when coming back from the La Cumbrecita viewpoint to the car park. I have to say, however, that if you are thinking about which place to visit (only one) - Caldera de Taburiente or Roque de los Muchachos - I would prefer Roque de los Muchachos.
  • Magical place, difficult to get there without a car. I recommend you to include La Palma in your plans to be able to appreciate such wonderful rocky walls.
  • Brutal, sobre todo la subida al hoyo verde
  • Best in the World!!
  • We started walking the half day. A "suicide" hour heat, clear, but for reasons of time we didn't have another hole to make it another time. It's a walk not too complicated but, naturally, it is necessary to be at least a little bit accustomed to walking through the countryside. As we advanced saw how sporadic puddles of water are transformed into a discontinuous current for, little later, have all a river (a Lord River for what are the Canary) ahead of our. In fact, the boiler gets slightly confuse the perception of being on an island. With its walls of 2000 meters of altitude, the forest and the river it almost seems that you are walking through the Sierra de gredos mountains or Guadarrama to cite two examples. In the rest of the island is impossible because you always have the sea in some point of the horizon (or several). Here inside is not by and by no means.
