South Coast Walks & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
La Palma is a quaint island, home to just under 84,000 people. The population may be small, but the island is packed with incredible scenery, history and culture. With mild, tropical weather conditions year-round, remarkable landscapes and the alluring shores of the Atlantic Ocean, to walk on La Palma is to experience natural beauty at its finest. It is one of the westernmost islands in the Canaries, sitting off the west coast of Africa, just above the even smaller island of El Hierro.
La Palma is an excellent destination for hiking. There is even a bronze statue on the island dedicated to walkers who come here from all over the world. Lush forests set on a dramatic volcanic landscape provide a phenomenal backdrop for our treks.
The island is nicknamed ‘la isla bonita’, and it only takes one visit to see why. Whatever you’re looking for from your break, whether it’s stunning mountain peaks, colonial history or impressive architecture, you’ll find it on one of our trips to La Palma.
We have carefully designed all of our La Palma tours to ensure that you see everything this little island has to offer.
