Self-guided walking holidays

The island of La Palma is off the usual beaten track for tourism – it is an ideal island for nature lovers and adventurers. Known for its tranquillity, beauty and amazing walks, it is without doubt a paradise for every walking enthusiast.
With around 1000km of marked trails on the island, you're spoilt for choice but you can be assured that our walking holidays include some of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring trails on La Palma, such as the historic GR130 Camino Real (the Walk of Kings), the Volcano Route, Roque de Muchachos, the hidden north and the UNESCO Laurisilva Forest. All of our walking routes comply with both the ERA and FEDME (European Ramblers Association and the Spanish Federation of Mountaineering and Climbing).
Accommodation according to suitability and availability is included in our walking holidays - we do the searching and booking so you don't have to!
Whether it be a 3-Centre Highlights Holiday, the Rural North of La Palma or the entire GR130 Camino Real with luggage transported, we have a walking holiday to suit you.
* All walks are self-guided, will full information and our on-line support if required.

Starting in the historic capital of Santa Cruz de La Palma, followed by La Galga laurel forest, the next couple of days are spent exploring the rugged north. Here, the ancient donkey paths provide stunning views, caves and pre-Hispanic rock engravings.
With a trip to the Roque de Muchachos at the very top of the island, the rest of your holiday is in the south of La Palma walking the Volcano Route, the awesome Caldera de Taburiente and even some beach time with a boat trip to see the dolphins.
Three different accommodations are included.

* This walking holiday is suitable for those with a hire car but is also possible with the use of buses and occasional taxi.

After a first night in Santa Cruz, the walk begins with Los Tilos, a UNESCO sub-tropical forest in the north east. The following walks are along the very rural northern section of the GR130 Camino Real. With stunning views, the route meanders along the ancient donkey trails through tiny villages and across the cliff tops, interspersed with dramatic ravines.
Continuing the route along the north west of La Palma through pine forests and country lanes, the secret capital of Los Llanos is reached with the beach resort of Tazacorte nearby.
Four/five different accommodations are included along the way.
* We arrange for your luggage to be transported between accommodations.

GR130 Camino Real Circular Trek

La Palma GR130 is a long distance circular trek around the periphery of the island. At approx 150km long, if you like a challenge, this is it!
But the beauty and diversity of the scenery is certainly more than worth it as the route meanders along ancient donkey tracks, through sloping pine forests, up and down steep ravines and over lava fields, weaving in and out through remote villages and the very occasional bustling town. 
With different accommodations along the way, the route is usually walked in eight or nine days although this can be adapted to suit.
* Your luggage is transported between accommodations.
