National Park Nature / 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.

  • Fantastic veiws up there , felt great being up in the clouds , it was a long day but well worth it for what we saw , very vold at the top so take a jacket or jumper  more »
  • Stunning views, well worth a visit! Would def recommend to friends and family! I'm scared of heights but this was worth it! To stand in the clouds and see the park from so high up is amazing  more »
  • Did this tour as a cruise excursion. We loved it. Views are spectacular. We took a short hike along the volcanic crater that is very manageable everyone on the bus completed the hike.  more »

  • Caldera de Taburiente National Park is a stunning national park with ashy extinct volcanoes, impressive forests with rare plants and numerous colourful streams. Make sure to wear solid boots and old clothes when visiting. You should at least spend an entire or even several days to discover everything this magnificent park has to offer.
  • Its great to visit the Caldera. Its within easy reach from Los Llanos and well signposted. Need to look out for the white and yellow stripes that show the way. Plenty of them and white and yellow crosses showing the wrong way! Its very hilly out here so you do need a good level of fitness. For those of you that want to start from the Caldera there are taxis available from Los Llanos and wait there for your return. For around 8 euros per person. The landscape is truly magnificent. You should definitely visit but you will need to plan it to take all day. Go get out there!!!
  • One of the most beautiful and amazing places. I enjoy coming back here every few years
  • Very nice Area... although we had fog all over the 'caldera' it was beautiful. The nature all around is fantastic and we had a lot fun to walk from the 'endless' road up to the hills and the forest.
  • Beautiful panaromas the view is amazing and well worth the winding road up to the peak
