La Palma is rightly considered one of the most beautiful of the Canary Islands.
La Palma is not only known for its beautiful, year-round mild climate – it is not for nothing that “eternal” spring – the island also offers a breathtaking landscape and plenty of largely untouched nature.

So that you can enjoy all this undisturbed, we have designed various hiking programs.
