Walking on the Volcanic Island of La Palma

On the edge of the Cumbre Vieja – a long-stretched elevation from the Caldera in the North up to Fuencaliente in the South –, there are walking tours throughout the typical volcanic landscape of the island. One tour guides you through black fields of ash, past extinct craters, lava streams and bizarre rock formations with fantastic view onto the Atlantic Ocean. At its end, you reach Teneguia, the youngest volcano of the Canary Islands, which erupted in 1971 for the last time. In its proximity, a Visitor’s Centre on volcanism on La Palma was established.
