La Palma: Return Bus Transfer to Roque de los Muchachos

9. La Palma: Return Bus Transfer to Roque de los Muchachos

The Roque de los Muchachos is located at the highest point of the island of La Palma at 2,426 meters high. An incredible place where nature and astronomy go hand in hand as it is also home to the Roque de Los Muchachos Astrophysical Observatory (ORM), one of the most important sets of telescopes in the world. With our transfer, we take you to the Roque de los Muchachos itself, where you have a privileged view of the Caldera de Taburiente National Park, a huge erosive caldera about 1,500 meters deep covered with pine forests, crossed by convoluted ravines. This is a must-see for all those who visit the island. Its panoramic views and the lush picturesque vegetation of the place, mainly broom and lambswool, create a picture that is difficult to forget, especially during the flowering period. In addition, normally from there, you can see the other neighboring islands on the horizon: Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hierro. Once our transfer leaves you at the highest point of the island, you can enjoy several hiking trails. We recommend the option of walking along the edge of La Caldera along the GR 131 enjoying the incredible views above the clouds. The contrast between telescopes and nature does not go unnoticed easily. With this hiking option, you can start at the Roque de Los Muchachos viewpoint, walk past several of the Telescopes, enjoy the views from the Pico de la Fuente Nueva, or see along the way the cedars, lards and pansies summit are some of the few survivors who have managed to prevail here to the extreme hostility of the environment. A little further on, we find the so-called Roberto's Wall, which legend attributes to the hand of the devil. And at the Mirador de Los Andenes, where the road is within reach again, after about an hour and a half, the feeling of floating in the void is almost unreal. If you want to continue advancing on the trail, the small ascents and descents are continuous in this section until you ascend to Pico de La Cruz, which is about 5 kilometers from the beginning (about two hours approx.). And even if you are a more expert walker, reach the Pico de La Nieve (2,232 m) (10 km and 4 hours approx.). Keep in mind that you have to deviate a few meters to reach its top. Later, you will have to go back to go down to the intersection of the main road, where our transfer will be waiting for you at the indicated time. The return time depends of the meeting point : 14:00h From el Roque de Los Muchachos 14:10h From Los Andenes 14:15h From Pico de La Cruz

unforgettable trip, beautiful views, it's worth going, MASCA's place in the park is really impressive, as well as driving along narrow roads along the serpentines of the park, A bit too little freedom to admire the views at stops, too fast pace at stops, the trip was supposed to start at 8 a.m. before we gathered everyone it started at 9 so we lost 1 hour which would have been useful at the viewpoints. I also do not recommend the proposed restaurant called CARMEN by the guide, The food is nasty, raw, unseasoned (the WORST!) the rest is ok,

It was the best guided tour experience in my life. The guide was an incredibly friendly person, who talked fluently on different languages and gently took care for us. The bus was comfortable, the tour was precisely planned with a lot of sightseeing. Joyful! My advice for the restaurant: pick local goat cheese, it is delicious.

Absolutely amazing trip, the best bus driver ever seen, Carlos. The guide spikes fluently English and French and explains very good about all the places we have seen. Program was organised very well with pause to take pictures, have lunch in a nice local restoration or shopping for special local things.

Bad logistics planning for our pick up we were told 7:30am (to arrive at a bus top, not the hotel as advertised).. the bust came at 7:20am and left without us. We had to take a taxi €27 to somewhere ahead so they could pick us up. Such a bad start. The tour itself was lovely as we had an amazing guide

Amazing organisation. Highly professional tour guide and driver . Interesting excursion in 3 languages (en / fr / al )
