Geologic Formation
Hidden up in the wine country around Tafira, find Caldera de Bandama, a huge volcanic crater. From the rim, catch views of the surrounding island and into the 1 km (0.6 mi) wide crater. If you're feeling up to it, take the 200 m (700 ft) walk down the volcanic ash into the crater--it takes about half an hour, and you should make sure to wear comfortable shoes. To get here, catch the number 311 bus, leaving from San Telmo bus station every hour. There are also places to grab a snack nearby. Make Caldera de Bandama a centerpiece of your Las Palmas de Gran Canaria vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Las Palmas de Gran Canaria travel itinerary maker.

  • More than 200 meters deep and a thousand approximately in diameter, very impressive, scenic spot which can be reached easily by car. The term volcanology is derived from the Spanish used caldera. In a quarter of an hour from Las Palmas.

  • Cloudless sky with fantastic view, but caution: Welding & sunstroke! Therefore: even with overcast skies with the car a few kilometers from Las Palmas to the largest crater of the Canaries up drive, where there are 3 ways: 1 up to the PIC and enjoy the view 2. down to the bottom of the crater, 200 m altitude difference. also a pensioner going casual incl. rise in 2 hours. 3. round trip on the crater rim: we, pensioners, needed about 75 minutes. You will find there also a refreshment stop possible. It is worth! P.S. good shoes and water take.

  • Our experience was very good, little personal for many tables, the space is not very low would have to better organization have because we saw how they sat two couples in the same table that is so one of the guys paid and is was for the site in which it is would have to offer Canarian food more because many tourists pass
