There are some challenging routes for fit experts. With author/researchers Charles Davis' and Jan Kostura's excellent walk descriptions you'll know which routes are for you - and all of them are a true adventure. The steepest island in the world, the deepest crater, the clearest skies: volcanoes you can climb without being shot into orbit; a subtropical forest minus the slimy things slinking up your trouser leg; black beaches, blue seas, high mountains, vegetation that is literally flamboyant, everything linked by 1080 kilometres of waymarked paths; and all virtually untouched by tourism.
If this sounds divine or like some lost paradise, you're not the first to think so, previous commentators have identified La Palma as the prototype for both the Elysian Fields and Atlantis!
The fanciful stuff aside, the island is a walker's idyll, utterly tranquil, verdant and almost unspoiled.
