La Palma, a Trail-Running Destination
The small volcanic island is a true hotspot for outdoor sports.
La Palma is one of the green paradises from the Canary Islands, the Spanish Archipelago in the Atlantic ocean.
The volcanic island has a series of peaks above 2000m of altitude with Roque Los Muchachos, the highest culminating at 2426 meters.
Each year in May the Transvulcania race attracts trail runners from all over the world.
The GR131 & Beyond...
Popularized by the Transvulcania, the GR 131 (70mk+) trail crosses the island on the Volcanic Route from Fuencaliente to Réfugio El Pilar, then on the Crest Trail up to Roque Los Muchachos and finally down to Puerto de Tazacorte with a cumulative elevation of 4400m.
Explore the major trails of La Palma (a trail-running guide).
Vertical & Brutal
In La Palma, a flat trail is just a fantasy that doesn't exist... It's all about elevation, vertical up-hills and crazy downhills on volcanic rocks.
Even the local race of Tazacorte, the "Paris Chiquito Trail" in just 19km has 2737 m of cumulative elevation (altitude max 1070m) including part of the Kilometer Vertical of the Transvulcania.
