La Palma Enchanted Forest Hike Itinerary

Having met your guide at your chosen meeting point, you'll be given your hiking poles ready to begin your adventure on the beautiful island of La Palma. Setting off on your trek, you'll soon understand why the magical leafy area has earned the nickname of the Enchanted Forest.

You'll walk along the Cubo de la Galga hiking path, one of the best places on the island to experience the famous laurel forests that cover La Palma. Throughout your hike, you'll be surrounded by the vibrantly green fronds of the laurel trees and ferns, which have been spread across the island for over a million years. 

Reaching Somada Alta, a viewpoint located 900 metres (almost 3000 feet) above sea level, you'll be left speechless by the impressive panoramic views of the villages of northeast La Palma. From here, you'll begin descending through the heart of the Enchanted Forest, a jungle of lianas and tropical flowers.

At the bottom of the hill, you'll see the picturesque houses typical of the region, and watch as the locals go about their daily lives. The perfect end to an excellent hiking trip!
