If you're even remotely interested in volcanoes, don't miss a visit to Timanfaya. Even if you're not, you can't fail to be impressed by the stark but incredibly beautiful scenery. My first tip would be to start your visit at the park's Information Centre which is a few kilometers north of the entrance to the Park on the LZ67. This... More

A great day out to understand the history of Lanzarote. To get this great experience though you do need to go to the Timanfaya visitor centre first (which is free to enter) before you head to the 'Fire Mountain'. The visitor centre takes you back through the ages, explains the mechanics of what is happening in the earths crust and... More

During my one week christmas holiday on Lanzarote i biked twice in the Timanfaya National Park. The experience was unique. The scenery is beautiful. On both sides of the road you see the result of a volcano eruption as far as you can see. Absolutely amazing. Also funny to see camels in the National Park. Where can you ride your... More

We visited this National Park & thoroughly enjoyed our time spent here. The water spraying out of the earth was amazing & we also enjoyed the coach tour

We went to the Timanfaya park by car. The drive over was quite spectacular and involved driving through some sort of Army proving ground either side of the road, although much to my disappointment no tanks or planes appeared! There was a bit of a queue to get in, given the popularity of the attraction. Our €18 fee was quickly... More

A fantastic view of the island as well as the many volcanoes. Some awe inspiring scenery! Would highly recommend although not for the faint hearted. The bus trip around the site is pretty scary although the drivers are first class!

I hired a car and visited the park, for 6 euros per person. Once in the park a bus takes you around the old lava flows, hills and even through a cut out in rocks ( dormant for 200 yrs). A volcanologist and geologists paradise. A real lunar, almost alien landscape. Spectacular, and a must do, while here. The blow... More

We weren't sure whether to go to timanfanye initially, but we actually really enjoyed the camel ride up and down the mountains, which was good fun, and seeing the geothermal experiments, which were very cool. The drive did feel quite long at times, but the guide was very good and kept spirits up, and if you had good music to... More

We took the bus tour of this park, because only the buses are allowed as far as they go. Cars must stop from afar. Nobody is allowed to get out and step onto the lava, due to the fragile growth of lichens that are beginning to change to devastation of the lava flow. There is a lot I learned that... More
