Enjoy the views from the most spectacular viewpoint of El Hierro.
El Hierro is the smallest island in the Canary Islands. Of the seven, it is the furthest west, but it shares the same climate as the others. A paradise in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. You make your path as you walk, explore, observe, admire and disconnect. Here you will find all the condensed diversity just by taking a step. Over a very short distance, you will be able to see landscapes of great contrast: desert areas, plains, forests, volcanoes and cliffs.
El Hierro has a peculiar orography that will allow you to take breaks along your way, enjoying views that will take your breath away. Declared a World Biosphere Reserve and a Geopark, the island is of outstanding geological value and botanical interest.
Along the route we will drive to La Caleta, Tamaduste, Mirador de la Peña, Mirador de Jinama, Tacorón, and La Restinga.
