The Caldera de Taburiente is one of the fifteen national parks in Spain, and a place of unique geological conditions. In addition to its impressive landscapes, it also exhibits a great variety of endemic species of plants and animals. It can be reached by car through the Barranco de Las Angustias and then walking uphill from there, or by taking a taxi service and venturing into its core to Los Brecitos, where a beautiful descending route begins of about 6 hours, 14 kilometres and medium difficulty. The normal taxi fare is €51, to be shared among the occupants. In any case, we recommend visiting the visitors’ centre beforehand.
