A good fairly easy walk that can be done in trainers or less if you are the hardy sort. Allow about 30 -40 minutes to get to the top then you can walk round the brim of the crater and down into the middle itself all down and around well trodden paths, no need for pitons or crampons! Once down... More

If you like walking this is fairly easy volcano to climb and you get stunning views of Playa Blanca.

This is a pleasant , but dusty walk that gives excellent views of Playa Blanca and beyond. The small lizards are nice to see as they dart away from your feet. The crater gives you an idea of how it might have been during an eruption. Give it try if you are staying nearby.

If you're reasonably mobile and basic fitness you can take in the views. Tip ensure to take some liquids and sun cream so the views can be taken in

Remember to bring a light jacket, it's allways a bit windy on the top.Walking along the edge of the vulcano looking out on the view and down intonthe centre cratre is worth the climb up.

Well worth a trek to the top of Montana Roja. It is easier than it looks and the views from the top are excellent.

Only took ten minutes to get up to the top, do-able for anyone who is reasonably fit and has a good pair of shoes. Interesting view over PB. If you go in the afternoon, you will get better photos. But the morning is cooler. Be prepared to get your trousers covered in volcanic dust!

We took a Sunday morning stroll up the mountain on a whim. There were a few funny looks at our light footwear - everyone else had walking shoes - but it really didn't impede our progress a bit. The climb and descent took an hour at a gentle pace, including a few photos of the impressive views. The climb is... More

The track up Montana Roja starts near to the Virginia Park bus stop (Number 30 bus). It is a steep climb but the track is clear. People were going up with pushchairs so it is fairly easily managed. The cone of the volcano is a great sight but the views to Fuerteventura are really special. It was good to walk... More
