Los TILOS, la Zarza, Barranco Los Gallegos, Las Franceses and many walks more will probably always remain in our memories.

These wonderful places in the North of the island are really impressive. A unique, in part only on La Palma and the Canary Islands to find vegetation, with Canary pine trees, Laurel forests, vines that grow 20 metres long in the valleys down, and countless herbs, bushes, giant Heathers and and and. At most, an herb which drove a 4 metre high flower in the sky, which was equipped with countless small, single, pink flowers but impressed us. It is the Wildpretii Bugloss, which occurs only on Tenerife and La Palma, here even as a slightly prettier Unterspezie. Also the later walks, the journey into the Caldera de Taburiente, where we have camped for two nights (approval needed to get at the Centro de Visitantes in El Paso, free of charge), the full moon hike over the volcano route, from the Refugio del Pilar was Fuencaliente and some smaller hikes, of impressive beauty. Sometimes it was the other islands of the Canary Islands at a glance, or seen in deep valleys with breakneck slopes or up the coast of La Palma. That La Palma is so steep, the walks are always very challenging and with some changes in elevation. Therefore, a good guide is very important! A good Guidebook should include anyway any trip.
