Astrophotography (the island is becoming one of the most popular and frequented sites astro-photo with its 2426 meters above sea level and a sky still relatively untouched: http://www.astropalma.com/index_eng.html) Then of course: seascapes, mountain landscapes, extinct volcanoes, flowers and plants (many endemic species), animals (insects, lizards canary) between here numerous species of birds.

Recommended equipment : Any kind of goals, from wide-angle to super-telephoto pushed for hunting and photographic equipment for underwater photos.

Best months : Any time is good. The spring for the wide variety of flowers including many endemic species such as the majestic Tajinaste ("Echium Gentianoides" and "subspecies Echium Wildpretii Trichosiphon") whose inflorescence can reach three meters in height. The summer and autumn due to the presence of the magnificent Milky Way in the night sky (a sight not to be missed). The winter to photograph the sea and the countryside in general or for trekking along the many trails that wind through forests of Canarian pine and extinct volcanoes.

How to get there : Starting from Italy you can go to Madrid and then directly to La Palma with scheduled flights Iberia, and the numerous low cost type that Ryanair have direct flights to Tenerife or Gran Canaria from various Italian airports, then from these islands you moved to La Palma by means of local connections (Binter Canarias flights or ferries Armas and Fred Olsen).

Visits : The whole island is open to free access, unless special restrictions listed below. You can camp in the ORM (Osservatotio Roque de Los Muchachos) for a night of astro-tourism only making a request to the IAC (Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias) well in advance.

Notes : It is still green and relatively unspoiled island, where nature is the main photographic subject. La Palma was formed by the eruption of a volcano a few million years ago and is one of the islands with increased volcanic activity in the world, having had minor volcanic eruptions until very recently. Inside the caldera of the volcano that formed the island, was created Taburiente National Park and its highest peak is the Astrophysical Observatory of the "Roque de Los Muchachos," a complex of about a dozen telescopes for observations night and solar towers belonging to various European nations, including Italy with his TNG (Telescopio Nazionale Galileo: http://www.tng.iac.es/).
