Discover the summit of La Palma on this full-day bus tour to Roque de Los Muchachos and marvel at unparalleled views of the island from the top.

Roque de los Muchachos & Caldera de Taburiente Tour

After collecting you from one of the meeting points between 8:15 am and 9:45 am, we'll head to the Caldera de Taburiente National Park, located in the heart of the island and declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Admire the lush vegetation and huge pine trees surrounding the Caldera de Taburiente, one of the largest clefts in the world, as you drive along the trail. Continue the route by climbing up through the mountain peaks until you get to Roque de los Muchachos. Standing 2426 metres (7.959 ft)-above sea level, it is the highest peak of “La Isla Bonita” (The Pretty Island). 

Enjoy the stunning views from several viewpoints located at the top and spot some of the other Canary Islands like El Hierro, La Gomera and Tenerife. Your expert English-speaking guide will also reveal interesting facts about the Roque de los Muchachos Astrophysics Observatory, which is home to one of the most powerful telescopes in the world. It was placed here because the top of the island boasts one of the clearest skies on the planet.

The tour will continue to the Nuestra Señora de Las Nieves sanctuary, the patron saint of La Palma. We'll tell you all the history of this place of worship as we rest in its square.

Lastly, we'll make our way to La Concepción viewpoint, where we'll enjoy breathtaking views of the coast of the island and its capital, Santa Cruz de La Palma. Get your cameras ready!
