We booked with 'Last Minute' excursions. We did the grand tour (there is a south or north tour that are shorter. I kind of reretted not doing a shorter tour as it was a really long day i.e 9.30am-7pm) and we were all exhausted by the end of it. It cost roughly 55Euro per adult and 33Euro per child. The... More

When a 3rd of the island is covered in volcanic matter its probably good to go visit why. Its best to go with a tour company as they can give you more information as to the whys and whens! Got some very nice photos and it was a memorable trip.

Timanfaya National Park has craters, fields of ashes from lava streams caused by volcanic eruptions. In many places it looks like a lunar landscape, and apparently has been used in some movies (I believe some of planet of the apes was done here). We shared a taxi with another couple, and went from the port to Timanfaya with stops along... More

So my wife and I visited the Timanfaya National Park today (22.07.14) and it was nothing short of breathtaking! It isn't you 'classic' idea of a national park but then Lanzarote is very different to a lot of places I've been. The visitor center/restaurant are well presented. The demonstrations are great and I think would be very exciting for kids.... More

Didn't know much about it before I visited but really, what a place. It is easy to imagine that the lava is still flowing, awe inspiring. Restaurant with lava grill unfortunately closes at 4pm so we missed it but would go again and again it's so amazing. Hats off to the coach driver for navigating the winding paths through the... More

This was the reason I travelled here! I have an odd fascination with all things volcanoes, earthquakes, etc and Timanfaya satisfied the craving. Staff and tour operatives were informative and helpful, the scenery is breath taking and just the whole experience lived up to expectations. A must!

What a place! Very special panoramic views of the island. Fantastic geothermal anomalies. Eat a great lunch cooked by volcano and at a very reasonable price! However you come don't forget the amazing bus tour of the mountains is part of the entry fee. Has to be seen to be believed. They have managed to put in a road, single... More

This place is great, it is 9 euros but you can get discounts if you go to more than 1 attraction. The price includes a bus ride around the volcanos. The views are amazing!! The experiments are great to prove it is a live volcano. There is a restaurant there but it is a little expensive, if you do a... More

Amazing sights and nice bus tour through the park which is included in the price. Take time to see the burning bushes and the spraying geyser that are just put a few feet down a hole so show how hot it is just a few feet under the ground
