My husband and I visited this place last week during our stay on La Palma- we parked on the road before the visitors centre- be careful if park next to the cliff faces as a car did get hit by a rock- luckily a small...More

This beautiful forest, which is easy to reach by car, offers you a wonderful break from the sun. Because of the height and all the lovely trees there is a lot of shade and (even in july) it is actually quite chilly (though the hiking...More

what more can one ask for? Start out at the Interpretative Center to get a sense of where you're at and what you can experience. Just down from that is a hike to a waterfall that is wonderful. It's a good trail that brings you...More

We only walked the first part of the trail, to marker number 7. Still a nice walk in the rain forest, we scents of the vegetation and bird spotting: plenty of finch and black birds.

A walk through a lush, green forest, you can easily imagine you have gone back in time million of years. Beautiful views. We took the shortest path to Mirador Espigon Atravesad (about 5 km). The paths were in a good condition, but it's a relatively...More

By the hut go up the path through the tunnel on the 2.8 km away view point. Amazing views (and good birds!). A spectacular walk in steep sided volcanic canyon. People are friendly. Take bread for the birds half way up by a notice board!...More

On an island with little running water, this was an easily accessible, delightful change - a walk alongside a water channel through short tunnels to a waterfall in the laurel forest, dripping with ferns. The information centre was interesting too.

Don't think there is public transport but there is a tourist information centre on site so you could try an email to find out. It is in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks for your answer, We did the walk and it was OK, just a bit steep in some places. When we did the final stone steps to the mirador I confess we felt a bit deflated. We didn't feel the view had the wow factor. But... More
