Caldera de Taburiente National Park, La Palma

(750+ reviews on the web)
National Park
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.

  • 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.
  • 8000 ft above sea level, the views are incredible.
  • Great place for hiking
  • Simply amazing
