Why visit La Palma

Just like any of the other Canary Island, La Palma is of volcanic origin. The landscape in La Palma is replete with lava traces and other volcanic formations, which is why La Palma is great for hiking and trekking. In addition, the island is literally sunken in greenery, which is always a plus for nature lovers. The center of the island is marked by one huge impressive caldera which is indicative of the violent geological overturns which took place in time. Tourists should also take into account La Palma is the only island of the archipelago featuring volcanic activity. La Palma is also home to one worldwide unique lizard belied to have been extinct until it was rediscovered several years ago on this island.
