Fantastic tour and guide. unfortunately when we arrived at the top of the roque, we were in the clouds and couldn't really see anything. Our guide however, made the most of the day, taking us across to the west of the island where the sun was out. Stopping at a farmers market for coffee, multiple miradors, ending the afternoon with a pleasurable hike down from Mirador el time to Puerto de Tazacorte. The views on this hike were spectacular and it was some quick thinking to bring the day back around allowing us to see alternative sights we may not have seen otherwise.

Nacho is very communicative to make sure things are all set prior to the trip. It was a nice bike easy to ride. It ended up being just me on my tour and Nacho matched my tour to my abilities and we explored more and hit harder trails. This is a great way to enjoy Lanzaorates beautiful landscape. What wasn’t listed that he does is he gives you a professional quality video of your tour after it’s complete. Now I have a 3 minute video of my amazing experience. You are traveling on crushed lava roads so a comfort level with riding not on smooth pavement should be had.

The hike is really beautiful. You are guided through an almost mystical "new" world. It is impressive and oppressive at the same time. To see up close what happened to the people on La Palma leaves you speechless. Our guide was very nice and got involved with each individual group member and adjusted the pace. Even the little ones were taken care of. Again, here is our tip: be sure to wear warm clothing for the early hike! The tour is definitely recommended. Thank you Steven!

it was amazing, the whole experience was good. it was our first time via ferrata and now we love it. it was not too easy and not too hard. some parts being enough adrenaline and some parts enough time to enjoy the view. you can choose easy or hard parts in between, so for everyone there is a challenge. our guide Dani was excellent. he knows very much about the area and the sport. we surely recommend to book this

Great guide. She explained everything very well and you can tell how much she is attached to nature and the island. The volcano could be seen very well through the rising smoke. Impressive how much power can be felt from the volcano despite the distance.
