Get Away From Winter – there’s wall-to wall sunshine now in La Palma

If you’re in the UK or northern Europe you have most likely had enough of gales, floods and dark skies. On the teardrop-shaped volcanic island of La Palma, Canary Islands, the forecast ahead is for almost wall-to-wall sunshine with daily highs of 20-22C and not much less than 16C in the night.

Even better, it offers dramatic and wonderful walking. And you could be there within 5 hours’ flight time from UK and many European airports.Walk La Palma Walk 8 Ruta de Los Volcanos

And how about following the route of the southern volcanoes (left)? Much of the walk is along the volcanic ridge that bisects the island west-east, offering super views. Here’s how it looks on the La Palma Tour & Trail Map.Walk la Palma Walk 10 The Southern Volcanoes ascending Teneguia MAP
