ORGANISATION OF SPECIAL SPORTS ACTIVITIES
Active Connect has years experience organising tours and hikes on La Palma.
Not run-of–the-mill excursions, but specialized theme tours or hikes, based on the vulcanology and botany of the islands.
Private hikes and tours made to measure also on a semi-scientific level.
We arrange private jeep tours, diving and hiking tours.
Is your university or college planning a field trip to La Palma and want to visit the subterranean world of the island, count with our 28 years of experience in caves to guide you safely. Basic equipment available.
Or are you a speleologist, visiting La Palma and need info or assistance, contact us.
Sorry, but we do not cater to tourists who want to make a one-time visit to a cave and have never been in the subterranean world before.
Hiking with theme volcanology
Recent research has proved that La Palma ranks amongst the most active volcanic places in the world – 7 eruptions in the last 500 years means geologically, that the now active (but dormant) volcano Cumbre Vieja, erupts very frequently. (Last eruption Teneguia, 1971)
This has created a paradise for volcano-lovers and scientists. In the north, older flows of max. 2 million years, in combination with erosion has created a wild and rugged landscape, while the younger volcanism in the south presents a landscape of cones, domes, colors and places where the earth is still hot.
We offer private hikes totally adapted to your requirements.
Our guide has worked with local researching volcanologists and also assisted in BBC’s programs “Earth Story” and “Mega Tsunami” and can show you all the spots seen on TV.
Hiking with theme botany
As La Palma is the greenest island with most humidity, it is a true paradise for botanists and nature-lovers. It houses more than 70 local indigenous species of plants and a further 104 Canarian indiginous species. The temperate jungle-like laurel forests in the north offer unique vegetation of 45 million years back.
Private hikes adapted to your interest. Botanical explanations.
