Visited last week and it was a amazing experience to see nature's beauty and its past fury (volcanoes impact). Took Bus/coach trip through last minute transfer which was well worth as they explained every details from the origins of the volcano in 1830's and its impact on the land, life and people who lived in the hamlets till the development...

Visited July 2011.This has got to be the best tour ever, to see the water spout from the live volcano i was standing on, seeing chicken cooked from the heat of the volcano. The views where you could see where the volcanoes had erupted. It is very windy at the top but absolutely worth the views. Its a surreal experience,... More

Loved the camel ride!! 12 euros for a wee 20 mins ride around the volcano base. Can get very busy so arrive early.

We returned to Timinfaya with our daughters, having visited it 12 years ago before we had the kids. Unfortunately the whole experience was overshadowed by the fact that we had to queue in the car for so long to get in. It was all rather frustrating because we had purchased our tickets and had them stamped before being alerted to... More

This was a trip not to miss if it is the first time on this island it was spooky to be taken back to the history of what went on millions of years ago and how the destruction of the island as altered it as it is now today. All so this as now made it a national park and... More

Visited this volcano in Timanfaya national park which is still active but not seriously so. A coach takes you around the volcanic park which is like doing a tour of the moon,and in some places like the planet Mars. There is a Restaurant to visit after the tour where a lot of the cooking takes on a BBQ over some... More

As tends to be the way with organised excursions of this sort, a lot is crammed into one day which tends to only leave a very short time at any one point of interest. We travelled to the main park centre... More
