On this experience, guests will delve into La Palma’s untamed beauty and intriguing history. Starting in Tijarafe, Mike Horn will guide participants through the island’s lush subtropical environment down a rugged coastal path to Porís de Candelaria, a hidden hamlet at the cliff’s base. From there, travelers will sail with Mike to the spectacular Cueva Bonita, a sea cave once used by fishermen to evade pirates. Known as the ‘Atlantic Sistine Chapel,’ the cave’s walls are bathed in the soft light of sundown, creating a mesmerizing spectacle.
