Full description

Discover the new volcano of La Palma and its consequences as you visit the youngest piece of land on the continent that was created in 2021. See the lava flows and hike to the top of the volcano on this guided walking tour.

Begin your hike from the first historic volcano, Tacande which was registered in 1480 and known as the burnt mountain. Start the ascent up the new Cumbre Vieja volcano and admire the overwhelming landscape that was formed in just 85 days.

Hike to the top of the volcano, walk around the back edge on a 4.5-kilometer route along a comfortable path where you can observe the force of the eruption. (you do not climb on the crater).

Definitely book this. You won't be sorry when you see the amazing view and as our guide pour it, "you're walking on some of the newest ground on earth!" Nice, small group ! Transportation provided up to the starting point (about 10 minutes) which was a nice way to start the day. Very knowledgeable, self-invested and friendly guide. Spoke Spanish and English for us. Provided images of before, during and after the eruption which helped us visualize and understand what we were seeing. A very easy to manage walk with interesting stops along the way and opportunities to take photos. For us in our 60's (but think we're still 40!), this was the perfect mix of exercise and exploration. This really opened our eyes to the uniqueness of La Palma and would highly recommend this activity!

Was totally interesting! Charming guide! The only point of criticism: the tour was booked in German and was confirmed as such, but it was in English. Not a problem for us, especially since the guide's English was very easy to understand, but those who didn't speak English had a bad chance!

Very good, pleasant walk and very easy to do, our Guide (Magda? I don't know if I write it correctly) very attentive, explaining quite interesting things to us along the way. It was a spectacular day for us so we had plenty of coats, although when we got to the viewpoint, with the wind we needed them. Excursion highly recommended since the trail cannot be done if you do not go with a guide. I also want to mention the attention of the taxi drivers! Punctual and very friendly!
