Overview

The most attractive excursion in Tenerife to discover La isla Bonita and its last volcano.

The departure will be at 8:30 to arrive at the port of Santa Cruz de La Palma at 11:00. Once on land, the guides will explain the route. The first stop will be in the capital, where you have free time (30 minutes aprox.) for discover some,  of the most emblematic places such as:

  • The Ship of the Virgin , It is a reproduction of the Santa María on board of which Christopher Columbus discovered America and was built in memory of the sailors of La Palma who left here with the sailboats made with the wood of our mountains. Inside is the naval museum with naval charts and reproductions of some of these ships made on the island.
  • The Castle of Santa Catalina which was one of the most important in Spain on the route to the Americas.
  • The typical Balconies that are one of the best sets of balconies or overhangs that are preserved in the Canary Islands. Highlight the double balconies that were built to air the houses.

The next stop at the Mirador de la Concepción. It is located in the highest part of the Caldereta volcano “declared a natural area” where you can see the crater and the capital of the beautiful island.

They will continue towards the Time tunnel, seeing how the vegetation changes on the island, and then arrive to the south west, entering the area affected by the Cumbre Vieja volcano.

The next stop will be in the exclusion zone of the Tacande neighborhood where you will have a first view of the volcano and then you will go to Tazacorte, seeing the youngest lava flows in Spain.

Lunch (see the menu below) will be served in one of the typical restaurants in the area at approximately 14:30.

La Palma Volcano trip 29/11/21.. What a beautiful island, obviously currently suffering from the effects of the active volcano. This trip was expertly organised and operated, and greatly demonstrated the dramatic scenery of La Palma as well as the awesome and fascinating volcano activity. The tour guide Patricia was knowledgeable, professional and extremely interesting. The coach driver was more than up to the test of some challenging roads! The food included in the tour was first rate and truly delicious. What a brilliant tour to a fabulous island. I intend to return to the island again after the insight Get Holidays provided in such a professional and smooth manner. Overall - fantastic value. Thank you La Palma, thank you Get Holidays! Less
