El Hierro
Weather, climate and best time to visit


El Hierro is the most remote and smallest of the Canary Islands. If you like peace and quiet then La Gomera or La Palma is the place to be, but on El Hierro it really feels like the end of the world.

Because of its unique landscape with rock walls carved out by lava, beautiful juniper groves and wild abandoned volcanic soils it's no wonder that it has received the UNESCO bioreserve status. A pleasure for the walker.
