Spain: The Canary Isles

Walking in Gran Canaria and La Palma

This trip is currently unavailable. Please call us on 1-800-267-3347 for further details.

  • Lush, mountainous island in the Western Canaries full of diverse landscapes
  • Picturesque small towns and villages dot the beautiful coastline
  • Walk through extensive evidence of volcanic activity including the awe-inspiring National Park and world-famous Calderas.

La Palma, a lush, mountainous island in the Western Canaries measuring the equivalent of just 24 miles square offers attractive opportunities for walkers. Its diversity of landscapes constantly changes as you gain height or vary direction. There are forests of pine laurel, eucalyptus and meadows strewn with colourful wildflowers. Farming remains the bedrock of the economy with a wealth of almond groves, tobacco fields, banana plantations and vineyards. In contrast the island also features extensive evidence of volcanic activity with much to explore on foot including the enormous crater of the Caldera de Taburiente in the awe-inspiring and scientifically important National Park. The densely forested northern coast features magnificently rugged sea cliffs and spectacular gorges. You can enjoy exploring the picturesque small towns and villages dotted along the coast and inland.

Classics include the volcano route with a succession of mostly historic volcanoes; and a fine walk circling the Caldera de Taburiente often on its very rim. There is a host of other interesting routes including a walk from Las Tricias through idyllic scenes in the northwest with a blend of exotic farms next to thousand-year-old dragon trees; a walk along the canal to the Marcos y Cordero springs involving use of tunnels and a spectacular walk on the 'roof of the island' from Pico de la Cruz (2351m) to the highest point on La Palma Roque de las Muchachos (2426m).

Please note routes may vary dependent on the recent volcanic activity on the island.
