THE CALDERA DE TABURIENTE

Declared as a National Park in 1954, the Caldera de Taburiente is a large semicircular depression in the shape of a caldera. An amphitheatre-shaped crater about 10 km in diameter with very high walls that rise to more than 1500 meters above its base up to 2426 m in the Roque de Los Muchachos.  By cutting the island in its entire thickness, the Caldera will allow us to understand its geological history and that of the island of La Palma. Through its trails we will get to know the endemic species that make up its flora, with the Canariensis Pine as the protagonist, the main plant formation of the Park; and its fauna, mainly represented by birds such as the Red-billed Chough (Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax barbarus Vaurie) the animal symbol of the island, the kestrel, the raven or the hawk.  We will be surprised by the presence of water, with exuberant streams, impressive waterfalls and natural pools where you can take a refreshing bath. We will tell the history and legends of the ancient inhabitants of the island, the Auaritas and, in particular, of Tanausù, the last aboriginal king of the island who was taken prisoner by the Spanish settlers. And finally we will understand the importance and the way to preserve a unique and more sensitive environment day after day.

A GUIDED TOUR IN SMALL GROUPS

The excursion to the Caldera de Taburiente takes place every Saturday, at some times of the year also other days of the week (see the calendar) The groups are not formed by more than 10 participants, which allows a better interaction between the tourist, the guide and the environment. We like to create a familiar and friendly atmosphere and respect the rhythms of everyone and especially of the place where we are. It is a medium difficulty path that can face all types of walkers with a minimum of experience and without physical problems related above all to the knees, since the path is, in part, downhill.

“In the heart of La Palma, there is what we no longer see. The absence. A splendid way of emptying and that what has been lost is precisely what has been gained for the present emotion.”
