Come and see the new volcano of La Palma and re-discover the island A new tourist attraction? This has been the longest eruption in the history of La Palma. And now the island is faced with the dilemma of whether or not to take advantage of the interest of visitors to see the new volcano. The destruction has caused enormous loss of property and extreme pain for those who have nothing left. But the destruction has hit a small part of the island, barely 10%. The rest remains intact and La Palma today looks greener and more beautiful than ever. Visitors help to move the economy of La Palma and help to preserve jobs in small shops and other businesses that live directly or indirectly from tourism. Therefore, we can only be grateful to those who decide to rediscover La Palma. From here, we appeal to all those who are interested in visiting the island: La Palma needs you! Come and see the volcano and help us to rebuild our island.

Excursion to the new volcano on La Palma

The excursion to see the new volcano of La Palma is history because the eruption is over.  Now it is only possible to observe the inactive crater and the petrified lava flows with the thousands of houses buried under its extensive mantle.

  • from the viewpoint of the Church of Tajuya, just over 2 km away, you can see the crater in all its grandeur.
  • From Puerto de Tazacorte, you can see the delta formed by the lava, widening the island by more than 40 hectares.
  • from the Mirador del Time, with a wide perspective over the whole Aridane Valley, you will be able to see a general panoramic view of the whole volcano: from the crater to the sea.

A virtual look

We offer you a video to better understand what this volcano has been for the island of La Palma; to be aware that the drama is limited to only a small part of the island: the West.

The Aridane Valley is an intensely and extensively populated area of the island that contributes a substantial part of La Palma’s economy. After the eruption, the Aridane Valley has been broken and split into two halves. Whether in terms of tourism, agriculture or livestock, the economy of the Valley has been decimated and its repercussions are now being felt throughout the island. The area through which the lava has flowed, burying properties and farms, was inhabited by both humble people and wealthy residents.

In this video you will see the story of an amputation. The loss of a limb, but not the death of the body. La Palma is being reborn after this eruption and is still the Isla Bonita, as beautiful as it ever was. We invite you to re-discover it !

Although the eruption is over, toxic fumes may still be emitted, even lethal. It is important to stay away from the lava flows.
