Definitely book this. You won't be sorry when you see the amazing view and as our guide pour it, "you're walking on some of the newest ground on earth!" Nice, small group ! Transportation provided up to the starting point (about 10 minutes) which was a nice way to start the day. Very knowledgeable, self-invested and friendly guide. Spoke Spanish and English for us. Provided images of before, during and after the eruption which helped us visualize and understand what we were seeing. A very easy to manage walk with interesting stops along the way and opportunities to take photos. For us in our 60's (but think we're still 40!), this was the perfect mix of exercise and exploration. This really opened our eyes to the uniqueness of La Palma and would highly recommend this activity!

Hello dear Stefanie, a big thank you for the great tour with you and for your explanations and information (and the chocolate, of course) I learned more about the subject from you in a few hours than I did during my entire school days...okay, that's natural It's been a while and maybe I've forgotten something since then, but I will always remember your 5% eye "Saturn" and then later also Jupiter... that was really...moving, I can't put it any other way, that was a very special moment for me that I didn't expect at all until this moment through the telescope, there were stars just bright spots in the sky for me but the fact that I actually see Saturn was an amazing highlight, so I'm really happy about the photos

A wonderful morning at sea. The guides Gala and Andrés were super helpful and friendly and shared all kinds of whale and dolphin knowledge. We had amazing luck and saw dolphins, pilot whales, and a larger whale on our way back to the harbor. We even saw a sea turtle in the distance. Capitan Jose also drove us inside the Cueva Bonita to see the gorgeous sea cave. We loved the experience!

The hike was so rich with plant life and quite a beautiful journey. Our guide Roman had so much local knowledge of all the different kinds of plants specific to La Palma and the rich history of the island.

It was very interesting and the our guide told us a lot of informations, it was definitely worth it! :)
