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

What a place to visit. First I walked to the bottom of the volcano, not too hard but be careful with the loose volcanic stones, you can slip. It took around 20 min to walk down stopping for photos. The way up was a little...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

On a clear day the walk around the bandana crater is a great day out. Bus 311 from Las Palmas takes around 30 mins with some great views on the way. The walk takes about 90 mins with a few up or downhill slopes whichever...More

Once you pass Tafira Alta and after some 6 km (approx. 4 miles) drive on a winding road past several vineyards, where the grapes for the popular Vino del Monte grow, you’ll arrive at the stunning Caldera de Bandama, a volcanic crater that reaches 569...More

Even if you drive up the winding road of the extinct volcano to take in the breathtaking view of both the island and the depths of the crater you will not be disappointed. Alternatively, should you feel in need of a hike, there is a...More

I can hardly imagine the scale of destruction a vulcan can make. But these huge craters give some impression. Great to hike around this area

It takes around an hour to walk around the crater. Some dusty gravel there, so get ready to have dusty feet if you're wearing sandals. Not much shade (doh!), so take lots of water and a hat :P You can walk up the Pico after...More

A walk around the perimeter of the crater is a definite must do. We drove to the top to see where to walk but the walk for the crater starts lower down near the golf course. The walk around the crater was brilliant but definitely...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

Yes, there is definitely one in front of the café/bar on the main road and also I am fairly sure that you can park at the golf club just round the back of the village on the edge of the caldera. Alternatively, use the... More

The bus driver will tell you if you ask him for the Caldera de Bandama. It's the only stop for walkers going round the rim. If you want to go up to the adjacent view point where all the tourist buses go, then stay on the bus... More
