Reviews for Canary Islands hiking vacation, La Palma


review 2 Feb 2020

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The 5th walk which started at the highest point of the island, Roque de Muchachos with its views into the giant caldera.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The walking terrain is in parts quite tough with some steep and slippy descents. I donít usually use walking poles much but found them indispensable on this trip. On the higher ground on days 5 and 6 it was cool and was actually icy underfoot in the morning of day 5. Days 1 to 4 along the coast were warm but very wet one day so you need to be prepared for a range of weather.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Economically we supported local hotels, buses, taxis and shops.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good, it felt like a great place for walking that is relatively unknown and unspoilt. Itís a good choice for some warm weather in the winter.
