A guide to the point. Literally and figuratively. The fact that the guide also spoke Dutch deserves an extra point. A unique opportunity to see the new volcano up close. Along the way many explanations about everything that has to do with volcanoes, but also the vegetation. Recommended!! Please note: mouth mask needed on the bus. That was not announced in advance

It has been an incredible tour and highly recommended. We did it at 8 in the morning because it was supposed to be hot and we were rather cold, but it is true that otherwise climbing the last hill in the sun would have been quite hard.

Semi lunar landscape, a guide who tells how he lived the volcano at the top, Ascent from the point of view in front of the crater 2820m distance 190 m of elevation gain all in several centimeters of ash, plan water especially.

It was a great trip. Very hot and quite exhausting. Don't forget water and a hat!

Not too strenuous, interesting and worth knowing tour to the new volcano on La Palma
