Caldera de Taburiente has fantastic views and it's a great hiking area, a must see. I advise to go with a guide who can tell a lot about this area and what happened with La Palma volcano island. All very impressive.

We kept to the main paths which were reasonably level. If you go of the beaten track, it would be steep and uneven. In any event I would suggest a pair of walking poles.
