We meet at the starting point El Pilar at 1300 mt. The excursion takes in 3 different types of landscapes. First we start to walk up the volcanic spine of La Palma to a place called Hoyo Negro at around 1850 mt, takes about 90 minutes. there you have spectacular views over all the island and can even see Tenerife and La Gomera, its like a moonscape and often there is a sea of clouds to the east while the west is cloudless.
Then we retrace our steps about 15 minutes and plunge down a steep ravine, ¨Barranco¨on a narrow track typical of the island, walking over lava flows, another 90 minutes. this is followed by a gentle return through a Canary pine forest, 70 minutes approximately. All the times are average but there is always time to rest, ask questions and take photos, it's not a race and there is no time pressure . Most of the walk is in the shade
The walk finishes in a beauty spot where picnics are permitted and there waiting is the food and drink for a relaxing time talking and reflecting on the experience of the day. At present BBQ is not permitted.
Then it's home and hopefully ready for another experience on this beautiful, varied and unspoiled island.
The excursion is for closed groups with a maximum of 6.
Other things to note
Good footwear, a light windproof jacket, windy at the top, a water bottle and some dried fruit or similar, sunscreen and a hat. Camera!

I live on the Island and spend my time in the mountains discovering new routes and information. Most of my life I have been a guide in Spain, the Alps and Venezuela. My aim is to provide the conditions so that my guests, you, can get the most out of what the island has to offer in the most efficient and enjoyable way. The excursion is moderately challenging physically and I can use my local knowledge to enrich the experience of what you are seeing and finish it all off with a relaxing BBQ in a special place. Due to the pandemic a BBQ is not always posible but it is substituted by a home prepared hot meal if that is the case.

My second tour with Greg. On the first tour we had to go for an alternative route, due to the weather, which was also a pretty good route. 
This time the standard route, on which Greg told me a lot about the volcanic history of La Palma. Had to visit the volcano tube visitor center just after that then.

Gregory is a excellent host, he accompanies the hike with explanations of the nature surrounding you. he adapts the walk on your level. the difficulty is not hard and can be accomplished by anyone. Even if we not had the bbq because of covid restrictions, his homemade cooking was excellent and cooked with love. the ambient was relaxing after the hike. A great way to connecting with nature.

Totally can recommend this. It was a great experience. Greg is a fantastic guide. I truly enjoyed the hike and the conversations we had along the way. Greg is very knowledgeable and this hike is a good way to learn more about the island and so much more. We decided to cut the hike a bit short due to unusually wet weather but nevertheless the fog/low clouds turned the path through the forest into something quite mythical. The lunch at the end was another highlight. BBQ wasn't possible but Greg unpacked a home cooked meal that was very delicious.

Greg clearly has a passion for what he does and is very knowledgeable about the island. We learned a lot and had a nice time talking to him and his wife Tomoko. The food at the end was delicious, and just the right amount. Time to go have a nap now!

It was a wonderful experience to hike with Greg and Tomoko. The scenery was spectacular and I enjoyed a lot the conversations with them. They also prepared super delicious lunch with local wine. I will definitely contact them again when coming back to La Palma.

The hike was brilliant with a great host. Greg was knowledgeable about the sights on the walk, and also about the island as a whole. I would highly recommend doing this hike at the start of your trip as the recommendations that Greg told us about were the basis of the rest of our holiday; including amazing places we hadn't seen on the Internet. Superb food at the bbq afterwards too!
