    After a short transfer hike through a prehistoric forest to Barlovento and your next hotel

    After breakfast we transfer (approx. 40mins) to the starting point of our hike in the lush north-east of La Palma. The walk begins in the town of Los Sauces with a short but steep climb up some 500 or so steps to a viewpoint, ‘Mirador de Las Barandas’ offering views down to the densely forested ravine of Los Tilos. From here, the trail undulates through laurel forest, and we walk through prehistoric vegetation until the path emerges at Laguna de Barlovento – a manmade reservoir above Barlovento – where our next hotel is located. *Overnight Hotel La Palma Romantica*

    Take a transfer to Pico de la Nieve (2350m); walk from the Caldera rim through the subalpine landscape. Overnight Los Cancajos

    Today we trek to the highest point on the island! After a transfer (1hr) to Pico de la Nieve at an elevation of approx. 2239m, we begin the spectacular hike around the caldera rim, one of the largest craters in the world. The beautiful subalpine landscape combined with sweeping views over La Palma and towards the neighbouring Canary Islands make this walk an unforgettable experience. Although it cannot be guaranteed, this trek is above the usual cloud level, and on a clear day it is possible to see as far as Mount Teide on Tenerife. There are glimpses into the caldera and of colourful red and yellow rock surfaces on the colossal caldera sides. Continuing on past Pico de la Cruz, we walk right by some of the world’s most powerful telescopes and observatories to finish at Roque de Los Muchachos, at 2426m, the top of La Palma. Our bus will pick us up from here for the 1hr 30 min transfer to our final base in Los Cancajos. *Overnight Apartmentos La Caleta or similar*

    After a transfer, a magnificent hike through the National Park Caldera de Taburiente with its endemic flora

    After a transfer (1hr 30) up a windy road to Los Brecitos at an elevation of 1050m we begin a magnificent journey through the National Park, with its endemic flora. There is an initial gradual descent (1.5-2hrs) on a trail cut into the steep gorge sides, which winds through pine forest all the way down to the ever running River Taburiente. The rocks along the river banks make for a perfect perch for a picnic lunch and there’s also time to visit the small information centre here which houses a model of the caldera. After lunch we cross the river and have a short uphill climb before dropping down into a spectacular neighbouring gorge which we follow for the rest of the afternoon. After the walk, we transfer back to Los Cancajos. *Overnight Apartamentos La Caleta*
