Description of the activity

The LP-4 highway, which links Santa Cruz de La Palma with the municipality of Garafía, passing the Roque de los Muchachos, runs close to the highest peaks of the north of the Park, since there starting several entrances to the trails. At kilometer 37 of the same road we arrive at the residence of the Astrophysical Observatory, where a paved road goes up to the Roque de los Muchachos, which is the highest point of the park, and also the highest on the island. The space reserved for parking the buses is about 100 meters lower than the viewpoint of the Roque de los Muchachos, and being a fairly small place, only two buses can park at the same time.

More information

On the Roque de los Muchachos, we find a parking - paved veranda and an information stand of the park. It´s a pretty small place, so few meters before there is a small patch of soil where can park two buses simultaneously, there is no space for more. In order to facilitate the visit and that there is no congestion; we try to regulate this activity through the online reservation
