Caldera de Bandama, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

4.3
#2 of 8 in Nature in Gran Canaria
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.
