La Palma is one of the most unexplored and beautiful of the Canary Islands with relatively warm winters and hot summers. Out of season holiday makers love La Palma for the clement weather, as well as people with pastimes such as stargazing, due to the islands low levels of light pollution and high observatories.
This all points to the islands unspoilt and wild nature which is often best explored by car hire in La Palma. Hiring a car in La Palma is possible through our branch based at La Palma airport and allows you to explore this combination of rugged wilderness and nice resorts in all of its glory.
The Canaries are notorious as volcanic islands, hence the dark sandy beaches and rocky landscapes, so what better way to explore La Palma than to scale the mighty volcanoes - Volcan de San Antonio and Volcan Tenguia. The length and breadth of this small but charming island are served by the LP1 and LP2 roads which run around the perimeter of La Palma, with roads like the 113 and 203 dissecting the country in the centre. If you plan on visiting all of the geological fancies, hiring a car in La Palma is crucial.
As mentioned previously, La Palma is a haven for stargazers and anyone who has fallen for the recent popularity of perusing the night sky will love it here. El Roque de los Muchachos is the highest point in La Palma at over 2,400 metres and home to the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias. It's a challenging drive to get there so if you rent a car in La Palma, good driving experience is essential, but once there the trip is something you'll never forget.
Caldera de Taburiente National Park is your reference point as the centre of the island and well worth a drive in itself.
