this is an easy walk, with a good track. We took a taxi to the start of the walk but walked all the way back down. Brilliant views from the rim of the caldera. Closed shoes recommended as there is gravel about!. We wore trainers.

We could see the volcano behind our villa and decided to have a wee walk. Set off and just followed the signposts. The mountain itself isn't a hard walk and can be achieved in trainers, no walking gear required. The view from the top is amazing, you can see for miles. From the bottom to the top is only about...

Lovely views from the top and you can easily walk around the rim once up there. Up, around and down takes about 2 hours if taken leisurely. Can be windy at the top.

It's so easy to walk up the Montana Roja and the views from the rim are fantastic. Everyone should do it - if only to say that you've walked up a volcano. We've found that the best route is to walk along the Av. Faro Pechiguera (which is the main road leading to the lighthouse from town) and then turn... More

My husband and I did this walk on our visit to Playa Blanca. We are both in our sixties but really enjoyed it and the views from the top are just amazing. It is quite a steep gradual climb to get up there but once at the top the views are amazing. It was a clear, calm, sunny day when... More

Do make an effort to walk up Montana Roja. It has great 360 degree views. Also its not very often you can walk around the rim of a volcanic crater. Its easy to reach if you have a car, the nearby bus route or walking distance if you're staying on that side of PB.

We walked to Montana Roja from the centre of town and it took a good 45 mins. The trek uphill is around 1.6km, but it is fairly steep and you will break a sweat so make sure you take some water and snacks. Once you arrive at the top you can walk around the crater which is huge, with amazing... More

Fairly easy walk of around half an hour to reach the top. Volcanic crater you can walk around, go early before it gets too hot and take a bottle of water with you. Wear trainers or walking shoes!

Definitely worth the easy climb just to say you've climbed a Volcano. Great views of Playa Blanca and of Fuerteventura from the top.
