We had a day tour to the national park and it was the highlight of my holiday! We had a visit to a vineyard, camel ride, buffet lunch and then went into the national park. I would definitely recommend doing a tour, as coaches book their slots in advance so you don't have to queue for hours! We witnessed some... More

This was the second time I have done this trip, and it was equally as good as the first time I went in 2003. Some fascinating sights, very Lunar like, and the talk given about the site is extremely well done and very educational indeed. Look out for the geyser when water is put down a bore hole!

We simply were enchanted by the landscape. The vista as you drive through the park provides a three dimension context that simply must be experienced. Stop and marvel at the plant life. The highlight is a small demonstration of the awesome power of volcano heat by a seasoned park worker. There is a cafe which we did not visit. Loads... More

The best way to enjoy this unique park is by organised coach tour. It only costs 20 euro for half a day and you have a private guide. The guide explains a lot about Lanzarote's history and landscape on the way there. The coach then drives right past the sometimes long queue of private cars and parks right beside the... More

Easiest way to to view the park is to book a coach trip. you can do it under your own steam but you would have to hire a car to get there then you jump on a coach (included in your admission price ) which takes you through the lovely rock formations . There is a Restaurant/ Café for refreshments.... More

We visited Timanfaya as part of a short south tour with Last Minute tour bus. Our guide, Miguel, was knowledgeable and entertaining and our driver, Juan, made driving an enormous coach up a winding, narrow road look impossibly easy. We enjoyed the 'experiments' (I won't tell you, it will spoil the surprise) and then the audio tour with its atmospheric... More

We took the short Last minute tour 3pm-5.30pm yesterday (Tuesday) we think good value for money @ €20 each. You are only allowed around the National Park on the buses, which now I understand why, it's far too dangerous to let the public loose in their cars! This place is certainly not for the feint hearted! Up around the volcanos.... More

Would have missed out if we had not booked a tour, not only did the tour of the park but included a lot around the park and the rest of the island. Our first stop was at the volcano and the demonstration, did not expect to get a handful of hot gravel, that was impossible to hold, the water exhibit... More

This trip can be like a cattle train when you first arrive but don't let it ruffle you. The little show they put on outside the restaurant will amaze you. Make sure you have full battery for your camera, cine or whatever you have for taking film. Use video for the demonstrations as they are over very quick but are... More
