Strombolian volcano Crater Bandama (Caldera de Bandama)
The Caldera de Bandama (boiler) is the main volcanic site of Gran Canaria. It is a circular crater one kilometer in diameter and 240 meters deep that was formed during a hydro magmatic eruption (meeting of lava and water). This volcano shows impressively the origin of the island that is the result of volcanic explosions that took place there for millions of years.

All the crater are the farm and fields of a single farmer who lives there completely isolated from the outside world. A steep path is the only access. Hikers and adventurers will love to tour the volcano by taking the gravel path and slippery who travels the crater floor and passes the slopes in cultivated terraces, caves and a source. Appropriate footwear required.

The Pico de Bandama nearby offer, from its height of 575 meters, a panoramic view of the caldera. The road to the summit already offers several breathtaking views below. Once at the highest platform from the top of volcano 570 meters, you can see the entire West and North coast to Las Palmas and Telde. A clear day, one can even see the neighboring island of Fuerteventura.
