On the road to the Pico de Bandama viewpoint (great 360 degree views of Las Palmas, the Caldera, the central mountains and the sea), you can park along the road and hike around the caldera in 60-80 minutes. Well marked gravel path with some steep stretches, not fenced. Not too adventures and not too long, a great experience not to... More

Visited the crater and observation point during a private tour. Beautiful scenery with a 360 degree view just a short drive from Las Palmas.

Good place to visit, path accessible for average mobility. Start from the bus stop there is a viewing point which explains how the crater was formed ( Spanish, German and English ). There are caves but the path carries some level of risk as it is not an " approved route ". There is a restaurant in Bandam but wasn't... More

Good view from the peak, easy tor reach by car. Walking around the caldera rim takes about 45 minutes, with a nice trail.

This is a pretty good caldera, but not a Mount Vesuvius or the ones you find on other nearby Canary Islands. Do drive up to the top. Plenty of parking there, many people park at the bottom and walk to the viewpoint expecting no parking. There are (free) bath rooms at the top viewpoint. Looked too strenuous to hike down... More

A pleasant although quite steep climb to the top of the Caldera from our hotel. Walked around the rim. Good paths and wonderful views.

This is a fantastic place to visit. Just be aware that parking can be a little difficult near the viewing platform. Follow the signs for the Pico de Bandama until the GC-802 takes a right hand turn at the bollom of the Peak. Park are near to the turn as you can. I did the well marked walk around the... More

If you go with Trip Gran Canaria, you'll see a short film in a cave above the caldera which you'd never spot if you went independently. The trip combines the caldera with a walk around the Botanical Garden - thoroughly recommended.

An ever upward climb with hairpin bends, quite interesting in a coach, but the view was so amazing. So glad I took my camera. We got there just before the downpour. Fantastic.

You can go down into the caldera or walk around it. I chose to walk around it, and the views are spectacular. Interesting plant life and lots of lizards! The trail is not too treacherous (though there are some sharp drop offs), but you'll definitely want stable shoes or hiking boots (i.e. not flip flops). The location is quite near... More
