Explore the highest peaks of La Palma & get to know the beautiful landscapes of Caldera de Taburiente National Park on this hiking route to Roque de los Muchachos.
Roque de los Muchachos Hike
We'll meet at the indicated time at the Church of Nuestra Señora de Candelaria, located on the outskirts of Santa Cruz de La Palma. Here, we'll board a minibus and begin to make our way along the windy road to the highest point of the island: Roque de los Muchachos.
Ascending little by little, we'll enjoy impressive views of the area and see how the landscape changes with altitude. Once we reach an altitude of 1800 meters, we'll leave the minibus and start this exciting trekking route.
Accompanied by a specialized guide, we'll explore the landscapes of Caldera de Taburiente National Park. You'll learn all about the high mountain vegetation and the unique landscape of the island, full of broom plants and other local seasonal plants like tajinastes (red bugloss).
Making our way around the crater, we'll see the numerous astronomical observatories that are located in this part of the park. Of course, you'll also get incredible views of the characteristic blanket of clouds that covers the northern part of the island.
The hiking route, about 6 kilometers long, will take us to an altitude of over 2,000 meters. After reaching the Pico de la Cruz, the point closest to the famous Roque de los Muchachos, we'll stop to enjoy the landscape for the last time and witness the best sunset in La Palma.
At the end of the route, we'll return to the starting point, arriving three and a half hours after departure.
