A trip to La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain
In our continuous quest to find new and exotic locations for our future photography residential workshops, we recently visited La Palma.
La Palma (San Miguel de La Palma) is a small volcanic ocean island that is part of the group of 7 islands which make up the Canary Islands, and belongs to Spain.
La Palma has an area of 706 km2 and is the fifth largest of the seven Canary Islands, its total population is 86,000 people.
Within minutes of landing at La Palma airport, we could tell that the island was a very friendly place. And judging by the 2 windmills planted just by the ocean, La Palma is clearly quite eco focused! Solar panels providing eco friendly energy can be seen across the island.
About an hour after landing, we were sitting in front of a beautiful Swedish wooden style chalet called “Casa Lupe”, which was only a few hundred meters from the Atlantic Ocean.
