Self-guided trails of la Palma

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Spending a wonderful day climbing up and down four enormous and remote gorges, eventually arriving at Franceses, high on the hills overlooking the sea (day 4). Walking at Los Tilos (the laurel forest) - one of the unscheduled walks.

What did you think of your group leader?

We were self-guided, so no leader, but we had a contact with the trip manager, who was helpful, especially in arranging alternative walks when the weather meant plans had to be changed.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Do your own research before going so you can customise the walks to suit your own preferences, if possible. Of course, with accommodation booked in advance, there are imitations to this.
