La Palma

Often overshadowed by its larger neighbours, the Canary Island of La Palma is a hidden gem which is unspoilt in spite of its attractiveness. The island’s scenery is so spectacular, it has been granted biosphere reserve status by UNESCO. A highlight of the island is the Parque Nacional de la Caldera de Taburiente, which houses a giant volcanic crater to hike around as well a wealth of other natural delights including hot springs, waterfalls, forests and walking trails.

In addition, the resort of Los Cancaios contains modern facilities on the east of the island, whilst the quaint southern town of Fuenacaliente provides a vista of verdant vineyards and trees for visitors to enjoy.
