Caldera de Taburiente National Park, La Palma

4.9
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 Los Llanos de Aridane trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • It is a really beautiful place, you can't go to La Palma without seeing it. There are several paths to get, you choose which best suits your physical possibilities. When you get it seems otherworldly, you feel like an Ant in a huge hole. It is beautiful, you can even swim in the stream that passes by it, is frozen but it is renewal. You must see it, because it cannot be explained with words.

  • Nice walk through one of the largest craters in the world. The path to the campsite is easily passable. The last kilometers through the Gorge are strenuous but thereby be extra nice. Really a walk to recommend. Downside is that you do have with a taxi to Los Brecitos. Otherwise, there are still a few hours of walking near.

  • We're hiking several hours have been. It was very impressive. At higher altitudes were visible unfortunately still the tracks of forest fires and to smell. In hot and dry periods, this area is also more likely to avoid.

  • 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!
  • Best views I have ever seen and I have travelled to many places before like the alps, bring warm clothing however as you can expect it to be chilly as I could see my breath. Taxis run up and down from the place aswell and they are incredibly cheap. Make sure to go BEFORE 2 as the whole views are covered by clouds however.
  • Beautiful hikes in the caldera, but the best part is the summit. Go on a clear night, park by the wayside and watch the clearest night sky you’ve ever seen. Milky Way can be seen clearly with the naked eye, tens of thousands of stars visible.
  • Superb views and such incredible rock scenery. Great walking too but the weather can change quickly
  • Lovely natural park with tons of walking routes. Make sure you bring good boys and have an idea beforehand of what you're getting yourself into. It can be magical.
