Bosque de Los Tilos, La Palma

CopyrightPaulaVermeulen-5495-2

This beautiful forested ravine on the northern side of La Palma shows off a variety of massive ferns, old, tall trees, ravines and waterfalls. What I didn’t know was that the path to see the waterfalls is a fairly difficult 8 hour walk (and involves a taxi to complete the route). Unfortunately daylight hours didn’t allow for the full hike, so I only walked along the stone path and through a tunnel to get to the the nearest waterfall (it was definitely less than a kilometre from the visitor’s centre). Parking here is free, although limited (there’s one area to park at by a wooden hut and further along at the visitor area as well).

Instead of hiking, I ate some Canarian papas arrugadas (salty, boiled potatoes) at the little forest restaurant, Casa Demetrio, were served with Majorero (a milky goat’s cheese) and mojo (sauce). Next stop: Cubo de la Galga.
