The rain and fog were so fierce, that nothing could be seen or distinguished. A great disappointment. A real waste of a bus ride and excursion.

I hired a bike in Las Palmas and ride to caldero bandama.. It's about 10 miles of mostly steadt/easy climb with one steep section. The views are great and the ride back is effortless!

Today we went to both Pico as Caldero de Bandama. The top (Pico) was kind of strange. It's more kind of a roundabout at the top with no real parking lot. But you do have a great viewingpoint. The Caldera however...is stunning. The walk starts...More

Cannot think of any better word to describe the wonderful world of calm, vivid colours and geological wonders that are the rewards of any hiker willing to make the 200 meter descent to the bottom of this crater. It’s a steep descent and ascent with...More

Bus 311 does not go to the top of the peak but goes past the turn off for the peak. It stops at a small bar/restaurant with a bodiga behind. If you walk anti-clockwise round the crater the walk comes out about half way up... More
