La Palma, Canary islands
August 3, 2013
Hiking the last segment of the El Camino Real Trail (GR131) interconnecting with the GR131 Trail down to the coastal town of Tazacorte. Highlights include La Palma's banana plantations, "hippie" inspired caves and switchbacking 560 metres down along the steep Barranco de Angustias to the coastal town of Tazacorete with it's colourful buildings and abundance of oceanside seafood restaurants. We stayed the night at Apartments Kikere before heading off to La Galga, where we rented a country house and commenced the second half of our holiday that included trekking the GR131 (Transvulcania) Trail.
This hike was the sixth segment of our 7 day luggage transported hiking holiday co-ordinated by Ann and David at Holiday La Palma (holiday-lapalma.com).
