We've been to Lanzarote 3 years in a row now but last year was the first time we visited the volcanos. You have simply GOT to go in this tour if you visit Lanzarote. Great sights & well worth it. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed very much my visit to Timanfaya, a chance to learn about the geology of the island. It was very interesting to see the demonstrations and also watch the hills and mountains that were created by volcanic activities in the past.

This was a fascinating visit. Those arriving by car are taken by coach around the park for about 50 mins, to see the volcanos and the strange landscape and all that lava! There is some recorded commentary on the coach. Back at the tourist centre there are toilets, a restaurant and a chance to see some tricks done by the... More

This is the highlight of a trip exploring the landscape of Lanzarote. You view the extraordinary effects of the eruption nearly 300 years ago and marvel at what it must have looked like and how long it takes the land to recover. We arrived late in the afternoon, but still had to queue at the ticket gate, queue to get... More

We took a tour that covered a lot of the island including the National Park. The coach tour is the best way to do this, especially in a busy season as they have a priority over the cars. We bypassed a very long queue of cars and did not have to wait at all. The scenery is stunning and in... More

It's a day excursion (offered as South Tour) which starts at the Camel Park where you can take a 30-minute ride around the Fire Mountains - fun for those who never had a camel experience. A visit to the Timanfaya National Park starts with a few geothermal experiments which demonstrates the power of the heat below the surface. You have... More

When you get there you buy your ticket and then wait in line with all the others - the parking lot is small. Ask about the wait time for parking. I walked ahead to get seats for the restaurant as there were about 100 cars in front of us waiting to get into the parking. Once we were all back... More

I'm normally just a reader of reviews and not a reviewer but there is a lot of misinformation in some of the reviews here that I thought I should do one for the benefit of the independent visitor to Timanfaya. If arriving by car try do so as early as possible or after 3pm to avoid having to queue -... More
