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

The volcano trip involves getting on a hot coach and being driven for 40 minutes around a pile of black rocks. It becomes very boring and that is all you do. We stopped at the camels on way back down and that was definitely worth doing. We were a group aged from 12 to 70 and not one of us... More

Such an amazing experience. I never know Lanzarote had over 100 Volcanoes and to go and visit one of the main ones was a great experience.

Here are some tips for making your visit to Timanfaya more enjoyable. The week in August we were in Lanzarote, it was cloudy nearly everyday. Sometimes the clouds cleared by noon, other times they didn't. Sometimes they cleared, then came back later. So, if it's cloudy the morning you want to visit, go in the late afternoon instead. Maybe the... More

We went there by car to visit this protected natural park issued from volcanoes history. Arrive early in the morning (Before 11am) if you want to avoid queue of cars waiting for access as parking places are limited. Well organized site, with some shows done by staff to explain volcanoes and Jeyzer effects. Bus tour for site seing included in... More
