By land

Feet on the ground

Hiking, cycling, horse riding, quad driving or joining urban walks are some of the options in La Palma. The island offers great conditions for any of them.

Hiking
Improve it if you can

An island only 20 kilometres wide which offers more than 1,000 kilometres of approved paths is nearly unaccountable. But this is what actually happens. We can proudly say that La Palma is the Canary island where this sport has met its best expectations.


Cycling
Pedals lead

Our roads are still unaware of traffic jams. Many visiting cyclists are shocked to discover they can actually have the road at their entire disposal. Furthermore, there are dozens of forest trails, the paradise of mountain bike lovers.


Horse riding
Paths on four legs


Breña Alta, El Paso and Fuencaliente forests are the natural sceneries for these variable length rides (between 1 and 7 hours). The vast majority of these centres are also in the position to offer riding courses.


Other suggestions
Quads, walks and camels


Meet here the firms which offer urban walks through Santa Cruz de La Palma, quad routes, bus tours and camel rides. Four very appropriate options to make the most of your holidays in La Palma.

By air

Bird's eye view

La Palma sky, one of the cleanest in Europe, will tempt you with its opportunities for leisure. Paragliding, panoramic flying or discovering the secrets of the Universe are some of them.

Paragliding
Riding the trade winds

La Palma can offer over 300 flyable days per year, with routes up to 30 kilometres long. In winter, when snow storms harass the continent, flying is still possible here. And if you are not an expert you can also join a tandem flight.


Astronomy
A vanguard sky

On 29th June 1985, Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (ORM) was officially opened. The 189 highest hectares in our island have since then attracted a growing number of astronomy professionals and amateurs alike.


By sea

Surrounded by water

La Palma is an island open to the Atlantic. Diving, sailing, canoeing or doing maritime trips are some of the options you may choose during your stay.

Diving
La Palma in blue

Our island's volcanic landscapes are as dramatic underwater as above. The warmness of our sea (up to 25ºC in summer and 18ºC in winter) makes it a shelter for subtropical species that can't be found anywhere else in our country.


Other suggestions
Canoeing and sailing

Quietly rowing by the coast, or finding assistance when calling in by sailboat are two of the topics we will cover in this section.


Boat trips
Cliffs and dolphins

Tazacorte Harbour, in the western coast of La Palma, is the island's best-known base for boat trips. La Veta beach (almost inaccessible by land) and La Cueva Bonita (submerged during the high tide), are two of the most usual destinations.
