Cubo de la Galga (PR LP 5.1)

Cubo de la Galga (PR LP 5.1)


This is a circular route of low difficulty, with a length of about 11 kilometres, and an approximate duration of four hours. There is a variant which consists of leaving your car at the entrance to the La Galga tunnel (where there is an Environmental Information Point), walking up the valley to Cubo de la Galga, and returning the same way. This is the shortest option. This hike gives you the chance to admire the island’s laurel forests, and it runs through a cool, shady area, making it ideal for the whole family. This is one of those paths on La Palma where you feel a leprechaun might pop out of the forest at any moment. It reminds us why La Palma is also known as The Green Island and a true example of its main icon: its unspoilt nature and greenery.
