Services

TRANSPORT FOR RUNNERS AND COMPANIONS

All transport services must be booked in advance through our website. We will soon open the booking system.

All services for runners are included in their race bib and are free of charge. Services for companions are charged.

We encourage you to use the transport services to the start line in order to reduce your carbon footprint and avoid traffic jams. The organisation's buses will have preference in the circulation, and are a guarantee to arrive on time at the start. The accesses to the Faro de Fuencaliente and Roque de los Muchachos may be problematic (even with road closures).

Companions will be able to accompany their runners by purchasing a bus pass, which will be on sale exclusively on the website (no passes will be sold on the day of the event). This pass will give you access to the organisation's buses that will transport you to the start, take you to the finish area in Los Llanos de Aridane, and take you and your runner back to the starting point.

Due to the peculiarity of the island of La Palma, and the situation caused by the volcano, it is impossible for the companions to follow the runners by bus and arrive at the finish line on time.

MOBILITY ON THE ISLAND: The celebration of Transvulcania by UTMB® is an important challenge for mobility on the island of La Palma. The organisers and the Cabildo of La Palma are making every effort to avoid traffic congestion. Mobility in certain areas can be complicated, and at certain times, in coordination with the traffic authorities, access roads to certain points may be cut off.

FUENCALIENTE LIGHTHOUSE (ULTRAMARATHON): Private vehicle access to the lighthouse area is not authorised. Vehicles must be parked at Los Canarios. There a bus from the organisation will only take runners and accompanying persons to the starting area.

EL PINO DE LA VIRGEN (MARATHON): Limited parking areas will be set up in the vicinity.

ROQUE DE LOS MUCHACHOS (HALF MARATHON AND AID STATION): Parking for private vehicles will be very limited at the Gran Tecan. Runners will have to walk to the half marathon starting area. There will be a shuttle service from the car park to the refreshment area. Attention! Traffic may be closed or regulated on the access road if the volume of vehicles so requires. It is not advisable to follow the route at this point.

AV. PICO DE LA CRUZ: Not authorised. Parking on the road is prohibited.

REFUGIO DEL PILAR: Authorised access from the LP-301 road from Breña Baja. Access and exit from the Valle de Aridane side of the road will be closed. Attention! Traffic may be regulated on the access road if the volume of vehicles so requires.
