La Palma feels more relaxed and less touristic than the other islands. There's some amazing beaches and it's really great for hiking! In the North there's the stunning 'Caldera de la Taburiente' national park and in the South there's the 'Ruta de los Volcanes' which leads you through breathtaking volcanic landscapes. 

Let me show you why this island is called 'La Isla Bonita'

May 2021  |  Up next: Gran Canaria​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Three months after we left the island, there was an eruption at the 'Cumbre Vieja'. It was the longest eruption ever recorded and lasted for 85 days. The lava streams destroyed everything that was in their way. It's shocking that lava was bursting out right next to where we were hiking. One of the lava streams was even flowing into the sea right next to where we had the van parked once.
