We walked from our hotel in Playa Blanca to Montana Roja, which took about 25 mins but it was virtually all on flat paths until very near the mountain so no problem at all. The actual work up the mountain is a little steep in places but not hard or difficult if you pace yourself. Sensible to wear enclosed shoes/walking... More

The walk took 40 mins from H10 Lanzarote Princess, 30 mins to walk up, about the same to walk around the crater, and the same to go down. It was easy to find after reading reviews on Trip advisor and the tips that other people put. The walk gave good views of Fuetreventura. I enjoyed seeing the plant life /vegetation... More

A pleasant climb above Playa Blanca for great views. Wear good trainers or boots not flip flops. Very breezy on top. We walked around the circumference of the crater. Not a bad way to work off the hotel food and see the resort from a different view. A few differnt ways of getting there, but we turned up passed 'Paradise... More

just out of Playa Blanca it was an easy 2 hour walk on well defined paths and tracks. You can see the path from the town so just keep heading through the town behind the front and you eventually get there

Its a 7 kilometre walk from Playa Blanca to the top of the volcano at 643 feet. Wear strong shoes and be prepared for wind. The climb to the rim from the Telegraph station by the Paradise Hotel is the worst section, but the views are worth while.

A Bit of a struggle in parts for the older generation but well worth it for the views from the top. Take the anti-clockwise walk around the rim for the best views.

Fortunately the Thompson tour reps leave Handouts at there desk which gives you walking directions from hotel timofaya . It took us approx two hours 30mins to walk there ,... More
