Last week we went for 4 days to La Palma. This north-western Canary Island prides itself with many volcanoes and craters and that was the reason we went there.
On the second day of our holidays we went for a hike in the Parque Natural de Cumbre Vieja to see the craters. Needless to say, they were amazing. On the way back we were walking through a forest with occasional viewpoints to the north. This photo was taken from one of these viewpoints. You can see the biggest crater in La Palma, Caldera de Taburiente, with the island’s highest peak, Roque de los Muchachos at 2 426 m. What is interesting about the crater is that it was not formed by volcanic activity, but erosion. It is very photogenic, isn’t it?
