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.
