This is definitely worth visiting! By tour or driving by yourselves, or, for the very fanatic hikers, walking. Either way you will be surprised by the wonderful views from the highest rock on the island.

Absolutely amazing place! We took 4 11-13 year olds up to the top by car and parked with no problems. A very windy and long journey up, but we stopped at various points. Stunning scenery all the way up. This is not to be missed...More

A mountain which gives you an expression of the diversity of the island. In summer and winter time a perfect view over the island La Palma and others islands around.

The drive to the Los muchachos is a challenge on the stomach with windy roads and sharp turns. Once there the views are incredible above the clouds. Islands of Tenerife and others were clearly visible. There was plenty of parking available and the first few...More

Got to be done. The drive up through the clouds. The amazing views down onto the clouds or to the sea. And the observatories, but be aware it will often be bitterly cold!

Hi, as early in the morning as possible. You'll miss most of the cars than
Which company organises trips to Roque de Los Munchachos? We are going to La Palma next month. It will be our third visit but our one trip to Roque was cancelled due to icy road conditions. Many thanks.
