Summer Holidays to La Palma
La Palma Sun Holidays Review and Guide
For an island destination where walking is the main recreational pursuit choose a summer holiday to La Palma. With only a couple of towns, it is the stunningly breathtaking countryside that is the attraction.
Walking on a La Palma summer holiday can be a series of freeform trails you devise yourself or you can follow the recognised GR paths. The Los Tilos walk for example takes through a steep valley then 13 tunnels, including one where water cascades, then through a descent of about 1000m in a laurel forest. This walk also features a lookout where the 360° is not only the best you'll see on a La Palma summer holiday but is so exhilarating it rivals anywhere.
Other walks on a La Palma summer holiday include the GR131 which takes in the island volcanic craters or the physically demanding GR130 which weaves its way around the old on donkey trails. If this is the walk you are looking to undertake you'll need to put aside at least 7 days of a summer holiday to La Palma to complete it. For the completely nuts outdoors nut, on a summer holiday to La Palma you can participate in the Transvolcania run.
Other than walking, a summer holiday to La Palma is also the perfect opportunity for sublime relaxation. Sunrises and sunsets make for incredible viewing whilst the black lava sand beaches are pleasantly uncrowded. With pretty, hospitable towns, some interesting history there's much to appreciate about a La Palma summer holiday.
