Took a coach tour to the Fire Mountains in Timanfaya National Park. This was one of the most amazing trips I have ever done. The landscape covered miles....the ground covered with the petrified lava of masses of volcanoes plus in places this was covered with the fallout of ash which produced a totally smooth grey carpet. It was like a... More

Hi Guys, This is a must when in Lanzarote. This is a place when they shot " Planet of the Apes" and it looks like from another planet. Absolutely unusual experience. We loved it! If you want to avoid long waiting queue - you will need to get there at the morning. Rent a car - don't get a sightseeing... More

Totally fascinating area so many volcanoes in one area. Lava flows everywhere. Demonstration at the top of Timanfaya of the heat that still exists was brilliant. Loved the fact that the restaurant uses the volcano to barbecue it's food. Well worth visiting

Visited as part of the grand tour of Lanzarote. The landscape is amazing. The experiments are great for all, but our 6 year old was truly openmouthed in awe at them! Fab

We did a express trip which was half a day and I really can't put into words how much we enjoy this. I am gutted that my phone... More

The coach ride was scary and not for the faint-hearted (narrow roads on steep hills and tight corners with no barriers)...and this coming from someone who likes scary rollercoasters! Yes the drivers do this same route alot but it still scared me. The landscape isn't that interesting for me. I thought it was good that Timanfaya's story on the coach... More

I was really amazed by the volcano landscape of Timanfaya National Park (and Lanzarote as well). This place is out of this world, I felt like on Mars expedition or so. The bus ride last about 30 minutes going around many interesting views and unbelievable places (there is no way you could drive your car on this route). We were... More
