From the hills to the coast in a five hour trek
Situated in the eastern part of the island of La Palma, Camino de la Faya allows trekkers to enjoy a vantage viewpoint along a path which connects the pine forests with the coast. Although it can be done completely, it can also be combined with local pathways which go through island’s countryside. At 14 kilometres long, this trekking path goes from an altitude of 1,530 metres down to sea level. The different ecosystems of plant life along with the sea as its finishing reference point make this a wonderful trek.
Panoramic views of the capital of the island
With an average difficulty, Camino de la Faya takes a little over five hours, and will take an hour longer if done in the opposite direction, that is to say, from sea level in Mazo to the pine forest in El Paso. Along the way trekkers walk among native plant species and at La Faya viewpoint, a panoramic view of the municipalities of Breña Alta, Breña Baja and Santa Cruz de la Palma, the island’s capital can be enjoyed.
