Hampshire Hikes & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire.
La Palma is a small island which is home to just under 84,000 people, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in dramatic scenery and history. It is one of the westernmost islands in the Canaries, sitting off the western coast of Africa, just above the even smaller island of El Hierro.
La Palma is an excellent destination for hiking, so good in fact that there is even a bronze statue here dedicated to the hikers who visit from all over the world. Whatever you look for from a walking holiday, whether it be stunning mountain peaks, colonial history or impressive architecture, it can be found on a walking holiday to La Palma. Here at Ramblers Walking Holidays, we have carefully designed our holidays to La Palma to ensure you see the best that this island has to offer. You’ll walk through ancient green laurel forests to see dramatic volcanic landscapes, as well as through the picturesque streets of its 15th-century capital city, Santa Cruz de La Palma, all with the help of one of our friendly and informative leaders. The island has a reputation for being the steepest in the world, but the highly rewarding views mean that even its most challenging walks are always worth the effort.
