Booked through Thomson at the hotel for the evening tour. Was amazed at the landscape as we toured around the park with commentary all the way round. Had the demonstrations of the water geezer, hot lava in the hand and the bush catching fire. Then finished off with a 3 course meal and as much sangria as you could drink.... More

Excellent value for money. Just over €30 entrance fee for three adults and one child (self drive). That gets you in to the visitor centre/souvenir shop and also a coach trip around the park. NB you can only see around the park on the National Park coach unless you go on an organised tour through your holiday company or tour... More

We booked online from the UK with Last Minute for the 3 hour express tour. €60 for 2 adults and 2 children. There was a bit of confusion with the booking, I thought we were going on the Tues and turned up at the meeting point. If you are staying in Playa Blanca the pick up is Wednesday. In fairness...

The tour guide was very helpful and the whole trip was filled with things to do and interesting facts! The bus journey was exhilarating yet the bus driver made the journey comfortable.

This is well worth taking a half day to tour the park. The scenery is nothing like I have seen before. Dozens of volcano craters, lava flows and rock formations that look totally alien. Do yourself a favour and if you visit Lanzarote, make sure you hire a car or book one of the many coach trips to tour this... More

Used hire car, and pleased we were visiting in October as relatively quiet. If in busy time would agree to note the quieter times to visit, early or later in day. We didn't have any problems nevertheless, and the view and experience is breathtaking. The bus tour is fantastic. We took the advise of another review who said to sit... More

We have visited the Haleakala Volcano in Maui and hands down the experience at the top of Timanfaya is the far superior of the two. It's very easy to drive to the top and doesn't take the best part of half a day up and down as it does in Maui. You park your hire car at the visitor center... More

We hired a car and I drove up to Timanfaya National Park to do this trip and it was absolutely worth it. To be able to see the dormant volcanoes close up you have to get on a bus as you are not allowed to walk on the volcano area! It lasts about 45 minutes and is just stunning -... More
