Volcano Route Self-Guided Hike

  • 6 hours

Set off on an unforgettable self-guided hike of La Palma’s Volcano Route and be mesmerized by one of the island’s most magical natural settings. An unmissable experience!

Volcano Route Self-Guided Hike

After collecting you from Travesía de Los Cancajos at 8:30 am, you will travel directly to the Refugio de El Pilar, a shelter located 1.450 meters high.

This is the best place to begin the “Ruta de los Volcanes”, one of the most popular walking trails on the island. Set out at your own pace and enjoy the spectacular natural setting of this region from the highest area of the Cumbre Vieja Natural Park.

Stop as many times as you want to contemplate the captivating landscape of the Fuencaliente Volcanoes. Surrounded by pine trees, Birigoyo Volcano Viewpoint is in a privileged location, boasting one of the best views of the sleepy peaks. Follow the trail until you get to the stunning volcanic crater: Hoyo Negro. From here, you’ll spot some of the other Canary Islands, like El Hierro, La Gomera and Tenerife.

Begin the descent to the recreational area of Fuente de los Roques, a beautiful area covered in pine trees. Continue the descent to the last stop of the hike: Los Canarios, the picturesque capital of the Fuencaliente region.

From Los Canarios, take an urban bus back to your hotel.
