Spain Destinations: Visit La Palma In Canary Islands

Visit La Palma After The Volcano Eruption

La Palma, located on the northern part of Canary Islands, has been the focus of attention due to the volcano eruption that started in September 2021 and was active for almost four months. As of today, life goes on as normal in most of the island, with the exception of some areas that were affected by lava and ashes. “La Isla Bonita” (the Pretty Island), as it is known in Spain, is as beautiful as ever and tourism is thriving again.

La Palma has one of the most spectacular natural spaces in the Canary Islands, Caldera de Taburiente. This Natural Park offers a great number of hiking trails, and each one will show you a completely different side of La Palma. Walking through dense forests with giant ferns or looking into spectacular, deep canyons is an amazing way to discover the island’s heart.
