View some stunning scenery during this panoramic drive, as you venture out to Roque de los Muchachos, the highest point on La Palma.
Despite being one of the smaller Canary Islands, La Palma is unusually steep in relation to its size. A ridge runs down the centre of the island from north to south and the entire mountain range exceeds 6000 feet in altitude.
Travelling along the Le Cumbre road, you will reach La Zarza Archaeological Park. Here, you can marvel at the findings including a large number of complex inscriptions.
Roque de los Muchachos is situated on the northern slope of the National Park, Caldera de Taburiente, at an altitude of 7949 feet. Designated as a National Park in 1954 because of its immense scientific importance and its wild and exceptional landscapes, the enormous crater of the Caldera de Taburiente offers spectacular views from wherever you look. With a circumference of 8,400 feet, diameter of 2,700 feet and a depth of 210 feet, the crater is one of the biggest in the world. Along the way you will make a stop at the El Time viewpoint, which offers lovely views across the Aridane Valley.
