Discover the greenest part of the island of La Palma on this bus tour. This is the area of the island that is characterised by its lush vegetation and deep ravines. And our first stop will be at the viewpoint of San Bartolo, where Doña Flora prepares the most delicious barraquitos of the island.

Los Tilos rain forest

We then drive through a narrow gorge with high, steep walls to the UNESCO-protected nature reserve of Los Tilos. There we enjoy the pleasant coolness. The waterfall is an attraction and in the visitor centre we learn about the diverse flora of the laurel forest.

Los Tilos has one of the most important laurel forests in the Canary Islands.

The laurel forests

It is an ecosystem from the Tertiary period, which was once the island’s first Biosphere Reserve and which today conserves a natural heritage of exceptional value.

San Andrés

A short walk afterwards through the picturesque village of San Andres, surrounded by banana plantations and with its historic church square, one of the most beautiful places on the island.
