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 your hotel, you will 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 2.426 meters (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.
Next, begin the descent to the northeast coast of La Palma, stopping briefly at the Puntagorda Market to check out its numerous stands, where you will find various local products and handicrafts. If you are hungry, you can have a bite to eat at your own leisure at the municipality of Puntagorda.
The Time Viewpoint will be your next destination. Here, admire the spectacular views of Ariadne Valley, its banana plantation and the volcanic beach of Puerto de Tazacorte. Then we'll head back to your hotel around 6 pm.
