Caldera de Taburiente National Park, La Palma

4.8
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your La Palma trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • This caldera is magnificent, at once mysterious and impressive calm. It is a pleasure to there hiking for hours, I would probably stay. We had a short walk to the Cumbrecita and the descent of Los Brecitos to the Barranco las angustias from the taburiente playa and the colorful waterfall.

  • Plenty of hiking opportunities with an overwhelming view! Through the forest to above with enormous chestnut trees we hit by clouds in a Sun overgote landscape. A pity that there is little opportunity to Park, something to eat or toilet facilities. But they do keep the mountain for the mass tourism in the hand. Beautiful day with views to La Gomera and Hierro.

  • Beautiful park. When you pass all the telescopes (which is very nice to see too) and go all the way to the too. You have a lovely view!
  • Beautiful, unforgettable, amazing views! Recommended for all mountain lovers! Get some food with you for feeding the birds.
  • Very beautiful. Unexpected and breath-taking landscapes with a lot of flora. The cliffs, rocks, plants and trees are combined like a real jungle. The journey through the river bed was fun and doable.
  • Simply beautiful. Parking at the top of the park is easy. Roads are well kept and there's a tourist info point at the top car park as well as visitor centre as you first enter the national park. Some great hikes for all abilities and very friendly crows! Toilets were closed when we visited. Make sure you bring a camera and lots of water!
  • A unique experience. we hiked the trail from "Los brecitos" to "hoyo verde" I can assure you it was really tough but it's worthy.
