Hike Roque de Los Muchachos

We climb up to the top of La Palma to an altitude of 2.426 m. Our route starts at Pico de la Cruz, running over the mountains to Roque de Los Muchachos. We immediately discover the impressive precipices that lead to La Caldera de Taburiente: cliffs over 1.000 m high. The views are spectacular, revealing every corner of the island. Our path winds gently up and down though the mountain peaks. The last stretch of our walk takes us to the highest point on the island: Roque de Los Muchachos.


Hiking to the top of the island – Roque de Los Muchachos

Since the highest mountain on La Palma has been accessible by road, more and more nature-lovers feel the urge to climb Roque de Los Muchachos to look down on the island from an altitude of nearly 2.500 m. Spectacular old paths cross these peaks, and they were used by the islanders taking their wares from one place to another.

Before we get to the highest point of La Palma we have to drive up a typical La Palma country road. Once at Roque de Los Muchachos, this is a unique place where our hike goes all day along the edge of the crater, up and down and always looking into this amazing erosion crater and our National Park. We will be immersed in a sea of clouds and the telescopes are almost everywhere we look.
