We visited this attraction in oct 2013 , although overall we did enjoy it you do spend an awful lot of your time on the coach , there was a recording playing telling you various details about the park ,it was of little use as there were a lot of children on the coach and their parents didn't feel fit...

This was a trip not to miss if it is the first time on this island it was spooky to be taken back to the history of what went on millions of years ago and how the destruction of the island as altered it as it is now today. All so this as now made it a national park and... More

Visited this volcano in Timanfaya national park which is still active but not seriously so. A coach takes you around the volcanic park which is like doing a tour of the moon,and in some places like the planet Mars. There is a Restaurant to visit after the tour where a lot of the cooking takes on a BBQ over some... More

We decided to take an organised tour of the Timanfaya National Park, booked through our hotel with Lanzarote Bus. As tends to be the way with organised excursions of this sort, a lot is crammed into one day which tends to only leave a very short time at any one point of interest. We travelled to the main park centre... More

We originally visited Lanzarote and Timanfaya about 14 years ago on a bus tour from our holiday resort. Then there was a short trip around the lava fields and the chance to see a bucket of water put down a hole and come out as a jet of steam and some dried grass combust in a hole in the ground... More

Timanfaya or the Fire Mountains are - for my opinion - the most awesome national parque I have seen in Europe. It is not comparable to anything else on the Canaries or Spain. Whenever you drive through it or visit it its amazing.

We booked the trip while staying in corralejo. A little expensive but so worth it. You need to see it to believe it. We had a guided tour and we had some fantastic explanations about the history of the place. Highly recommended trip
