Contrasts of La Palma

  • Walk mountain trails and enjoy local hospitality on this peaceful Canary Island
  • Explore the architectural history with its wooden balconies, town squares and stone churches
  • Enjoy sunshine and sea views along the coastal paths, laurel forest and caldera
  • Tread on the new earth of the recently erupted Cumbre Vieja volcano
  • Every season is a treat with fresh produce from the almond, banana and citrus trees
On this small, lesser-known island of La Palma, you will find yourself walking on trails through fragrant laurel forest, over red volcanic rock, along steep sided crater rims and lava formations. This landscape, with its endless sea views, really make this trip stand out from others in the Canary Islands. You can explore the historical architecture in the evenings with strolls along the cobbled streets, past white-washed traditional buildings and churches. The cafes and restaurants come to life as the sun sets and the terraces fill with locals coming out to dine. Located in the two centres of Santa Cruz and Los Llanes, with your last night in the Parador de la Palma, this trip combines great walking and culturally rich relaxation time - Spanish style.
