Full description

Discover the highlights of Santa Cruz de La Palma and explore the effects of La Palma's volcanic activities on this day trip from Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Have lunch at a local restaurant and visit the Caldera de Taburiente National park.

Meet your guide at the tour partner's office in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and board the ferry. Relax and enjoy the azure Mediterranean sea on the ride to the port of Santa Cruz de La Palma. Once on land, listen as your guide explains the tour route.

Hop aboard the comfortable and air-conditioned bus and begin your tour of Santa Cruz de La Palma. See a reproduction of Christopher Columbus' Santa María ship at the 'Ship of the Virgin.' Hear about La Palma's connection to this historical ship.

Continue to admire views of the 17th-century Castle of Santa Catalina which was an important location on the route to the Americas. View some traditional houses with stunning Canary-style balconies.

Relax on the drive to the 'Mirador de la Concepción' viewpoint. Stop to enjoy views of the island and crater from the highest part of the Caldereta volcano. Notice how the vegetation changes on the island on the drive towards the Time Tunnel.

Observe how the Cumbre Vieja volcano has affected the local area. Make your way to the exclusion zone of the Tacande neighborhood where you will catch your first glimpse of the volcano. See the youngest lava flows in Spain in Tazacorte.

Sit down at a restaurant to a delicious lunch of salad, bread, fish, potatoes, and cheese. After lunch, head out to see lava-formed coastal cliffs. Finally, go to the Tajuya viewpoint to witness the newest volcano in the Canary islands and snap some breathtaking pictures.

Return to the port in the afternoon and take the ferry back to your starting point in Tenerife.

An amazing excursion! Super recommended. The exceptional guide and driver. For the ferry I recommend biography 1 or 2 hours before to avoid unnecessary harm. It is true that you go a little fast, but it is also the most touristic and demanded right now, considering that you have to return on the last ferry. Everything is very well organized and the food is abundant and delicious!

Sehr gut:Guide,Überfahrt mit Fred Olsen,Bus und der Fahrer,Restaurant und leckere Speisen,2 Getränkesorten inkl.,Routenführung Nicht so gut:Sichtbarkeit,weil Calima;die Speisen wurden auf 1 Platte pro Tisch mit 6 Pers.serviert,auch wenn mehrere fremde Familien an einem.Tisch sitzen,das macht die Aufteilg.des Essens unangenehm und ist zu Corona Zeiten sehr unhygienisch(es gab kein Besteck zum Auftun der einzelnen Speisesorten)

Auch ein Lob an unseren Fahrer Roberto, der uns sicher durch diese Tour "lenkte". Das Mittagessen war sehr reichlich und lecker. Wir können diese Tour auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.
