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).

Learn about how the lava flow destroyed over 3000 buildings, and forests, and formed a new peninsula. See where the fiery molten rock carved its own path and created a new volcanic landscape.

A very interesting and worth seeing tour. You should definitely do it once you're on the island. What was not clear when booking is the fact that the tour is multilingual at the same time. In order not to increase the speaking time unnecessarily, we then agreed on Spanish and English. We had booked German.

The excursion was very nice and the guide's contributions were super interesting. The only "but" that I put was the schedule... we did it from 11am to 3pm. I think that with the heat that it is doing, the schedules should be modified and the excursion should start first thing in the morning. In our group there was 1 person with heat stroke.

The tour was very interesting. The hiking guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job. Writing only the visitor center as a description of the meeting point was too imprecise. We didn't even know where to go. It was also not mentioned that we were going by bus - you could have been better oriented. Too bad there was no toilet available in the bus parking lot at the starting and ending point of the hike! Best regards
