    Great trip

    This was a great walking holiday on La Palma. The itinerary was comprehensive and well thought through and encompassed the main highlights of the island. We learnt a lot during our week there and enjoyed some unforgettable walks.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Arriving at the highest point of the island at the Roque de los Muchachos with it's spectacular views, followed by an amazing walk along the crater rim.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Henry was great tour leader. He was very capable, taught us a lot about the island and kept us entertained throughout. I can't praise him highly enough!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    This is a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and if you are curious about La Palma and enjoy walking on volcanoes, then you should definitely go for it.

    Beautiful island, great walks

    There's a huge variety of scenery on La Palma and this week gave us a taste of everything. The walks aren't especially long but there's quite a lot of ascent and descent so I'd agree with the grade 4 rating. Although part of the Canary Islands there's often a bit of cooling cloud about and it didn't feel too hot for walking. The accommodation was all good; six nights in aparthotels with lots of space, one in a regular hotel. The tour leader Henry was excellent, knew a lot about the island's culture, geology and wildlife and was really friendly and approachable.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Lots of stunning views of the volcanic scenery

    La Palma

    A very varied place with ridge walks, forest walks and volcano walks etc. Some tough climbs and quite harsh surfaces. Not suitable for those who are unsteady on their feet or suffer from vertigo. The hotels were quite decent and the food was up to expectations although not exceptional. Henri our tour leader did a superb job he had a good knowledge of the island kept us well entertained and nothing was too much trouble for him. Overall it was a well worth while trip which I would recommend to anyone who is reasonably fit. I would certainly not be adverse to doing it again in the future.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Nothing in particular there was no great moment of enlightenment

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent we were all very impressed with him

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Under no circumstances should you fall over the volcanic surface is extremely abrasive just about everywhere.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    No, just get out and walk

    Great walking variety on a small island.

    Very enjoyable walking trip in a lovely destination, reasonable accommodation & food and a good variety of walks.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The caldera rim walk to Roque de Los Muchachos was pretty impressive and most enjoyable, but the walk in the gorge of the Taburiente river was probably even better. A shame we missed the Ruta de Los Volcanes due to bad weather!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jonas Perez - The most informative, helpful, knowledgeable and entertaining tour leader you will ever meet! He obviously loves his Island and his 'job' and wants everybody else to share this with his enthusiasm and humour.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The walks are tough without being too hard if you're reasonably fit, but don't believe the trip notes - days 6 & 7 are not the most challenging, they are just long but quite simple walks, the most challenging day is day 4 around the caldera rim, thankfully followed by the rest day!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Carry everything with you all of the time - sun hat & cream with waterproofs & a fleece. The weather constantly changes and can be completely different on one side of the island to the other.
