The views of the volcanos were breathtaking. We hired a car and drove ourselves. Far cheaper than taking a bus tour. It was amazing to see them cooking the food from the heat of the volcano! The camel ride half way down the mountain is worth a visit also

An Amazing opportunity to discover the 'Fire Mountains' of Lanzarote! We caught a bus from close to our resort in Corralejo travelled to catch the ferry to Playa Blanca, on Lanzarote a bus will then take you to the Natural Park of Timanfaya crossing the incredible Lava landscape. Our tour guide Regina was exceptionally knowledgable about the area. You'll get... More

Timanfaya National Park on Lanzarotes western side is a must see tour to be believed!! Since I have an interests in volcanos after visiting Italy's Aetna and Stromboli this landscape blew me just away! Since the park is a protected UNESCO biosphere it is only visitable by bus tour! Hired cars only can get to the visitor centre but be... More

This was our first holiday to Lanzarote and was keen to see what the Island had to offer. We booked a trip to see the volcano and I can say without a doubt it was 60€ well spent. The guide on the bus explained when the first eruptions happened and what it meant for the Island. The scenery was unbelievable... More

We had not been to volcanic mountains before and this visit turned out to be excellent. It's a must see if you've not done something similar before...the landscapes whats left behind is quite staggering to see. We booked the tour with LastMinute tours, via the hotel and the tour coach and guide were really good. The guide gave a very... More

We started our day by going on the camel ride which is 12 euro a camel so 6 euro each (a camel holds 2 people) this was a really fun ride that lasts about 20 mins, its very fun and very different. We then went to the visitor centre which is 9 euro to enter per person which includes a... More

We went here with LastMinuteTravel. I had quite low expectations, I mean, how good can be it on such a small island - how wrong was I!! There is a couple of things are the main visitor centre about the volcanoes, showing how hot the earth is etc. But when you drive around the National Park, you get a true... More

We went with very little expectations and found the demonstration of how hot the ground were fun, the details of the eruptions which had engulfed so much of the island of Lanzarotti were interesting and the landscape itself was awesome. We started up at the restaurant. We had a chance to handle the almost too hot to hold lava chips,... More

We were glad we went on this tour to the Park, obviously not a lot of scenery (lava rock) but interesting when we reached the visitor centre to see what the rangers do, as the underground is so hot you are shown a few experiments. If you get the chance take a camel ride, thats fun.

We took the grand tour of Lanzarote and part of this was a trip to Timanfaya National Park, the volcanoes and the lava fields. I can certainly understand why films are made here because the landscape is like nothing else on this planet. From a distance you would think it was just a "load of volcanoes" but, with the explanations... More
