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.
While the other Canary Islands are partly characterized by mass tourism, you will find plenty of originality on La Palma. Not only the landscapes on the island, the villages have preserved their originality and cast a spell over the visitor. So that you can enjoy all this undisturbed, we have designed various hiking programs.
