Immediately after exiting the terminal building, your tour guide and your exclusive excursion vehicle, with cool drinks on board, will be waiting for you and you will start your excursion to La Palma today.
The highlight of this excursion is the volcanic Caldera de Taburiente, which appeared millions of years ago. It is a huge circle of volcanic crags covered in dense pine forests and broken by rugged gorges. Our excursion takes you in comfortable minibuses with short breaks at impressive vantage points in the Caldera like the Mirador de los Andenes with views into the National Park Caldera de Taburiente to the summit of La Palma.
Roque de los Muchachos with its 7960 ft altitude is one of the best places in the world for stargazing. At its feet there is a gigantic volcanic caldera of 4921 ft depth, which is covered by forests and bizarre rock formations and has been declared a national park. This place is a must for anyone who is on holiday in La Palma. Remember to bring suitable shoes, water and sun protection, as you will make a small circular walk on the edge of the caldera. In clear skies, enjoy the view of the entire island and the neighboring islands of Tenerife, El Hierro and La Gomera.
On the way back, take a break in an island-typical grill restaurant (bookable with or without local lunch). Afterwards you will visit the chapel Ermita de las Nieves in an imposing little village in the middle of a very fertile valley near the capital. Last but not least, a visit to the beautiful old town of the island’s capital Santa Cruz should not be missed. The old town, with its colonial-style houses and cobbled streets, still retains the charm and splendor of the earlier times. You will have about 1.5 hours of free time to explore the old town of the capital Santa Cruz. You can also take part in a small guided walk with your tour guide through the old town of Santa Cruz.
At the agreed time, your tour guide will then bring you back to your ship.
