The fertile lava ash in the south of La Palma is very rich in minerals with a high content of phosphorus, potassium and calcium. It releases the water it stores only slowly – thanks to it, one of the best wine-growing areas of the archipelago, the "Subzona Fuencaliente", was created here. Photo: Ines Dietrich

The volcano route on the GR 131 is one of the best-known but most demanding hiking tours on La Palma – from the Refugio del Pilar it goes over the volcanic chain "Cumbre Vieja" to the village "Los Canarios" in Fuencaliente. On the ridge you can look over both sides of the island and also see the neighbouring islands of Tenerife and La Gomera to the east and El Hierro to the west. Photo: Saúl Santos
