    Marvel at the dramatic, volcanically formed landscape of southern La Palma, then visit a vineyard and pottery center that are inextricably tied to the volcanic soil.

    Depart from the pier for a picturesque drive south, passing through vineyards, pine forests and a rugged landscape that reveals La Palma's volcanic past. Near the town of Fuencaliente, you'll stop at the San Antonio volcano, which last erupted in the late 1600s. From the crater's rim, you'll also have a fine view of the more recently active Teneguia volcano and Fuencaliente, which means "hot spring." It's really a misnomer because the nearby spring that inspired the town's name has long since been destroyed by a volcanic eruption.

    Nevertheless, because of the thick layer of volcanic ash and lava, the soil is excellent for growing grapes, particularly the Malvasia grape. The grapes are typically allowed to become over-ripe to increase their sugar content, which produces a distinctly flavorful, sweet wine. At the Bodegas Teneguia, the island's largest wine producer, you'll enjoy a sampling of some local vintages. The wines in this region are revered for being powerful, aromatic and saturated in fruits.

    The southern part of La Palma is also known for its fine pottery, which you'll see at El Molino, a pottery center in the village of Mazo. Housed in an old windmill, El Molino features a ceramics museum and a workshop where the artisans make pottery similar to that of the original inhabitants of the island. At the conclusion of your visit, you'll transfer directly back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate walking/standing and there is some uneven ground to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
