The springs, La Palma
Depending on your experience in the mountains, you can choose between:Comfortable Option: Walking time,3.5 hours / distance, 6 km / up and downhill: - 150 meters + 150 meters4 WD vehicles drive us to Casa del Monte, 1400 m above the sea level, where we start the walk along the old canal passing exotic plants and coming into a mystic scenery, created by impressive clouds. We go through 13 tunnels on our trail to the Springs of Marcos & Cordero. After enjoying our picnic we return the same way back to Casa del Monte, where the 4WD wait for us and bring us back home. Even that the path is easy to walk and there is no relevant up and downhill all along, we cross steep areas and there is some landslide risk at this hike.Strenuous Option: Walking time, 5 hours / distance, 11 km / up and downhill: - 150 meters + 950 metersAfter the last spring the path leads continously downward and through the Barranco del Agua ravine until we reach the laurel forest of Los Tilos with the Visitors Center of the Biosphere reserve at its end.
