A good walk

Although it looks difficult from the bottom the actual walk is safe and with only a few steep bits-stunning views of the whole area-make it worhtwhile

Hard work, great views if not cloudy. Steep path to top. Unmade/rough tracks en route. Readily found by looking from the sea at Natura Beach

Advantage: the volcano is in the intermediate vicinity to the village. Nice view to Playa Blanca and to Fuerteventure. There are more spectacular volcanoes on the Lanzarote (Montana Blanca is one of them)

We climbed in strong winds in February. The walk is not too strenuous, although finding a good place to start from (we drove here) was difficult. The views of the volcano and out over the southern end of Lanzarote were good. The mountain though has been spoilt by allowing building work to creep up the mountain. There are unfinished buildings... More

Unfortunately access to this is rather ruined by haphazard building at the bottom but it is nice little climb that is quick and view is quite good. The wind can be very strong on the top so make sure you are have a sturdy gait

Worth the climb ( it's not too strenuous from the bus stop) for wide views over the island and beyond. And Montana Roja is an extinct volcano.

A good walk along a well-defined path which is not too steep and when you reach the top you are rewarded by excellent views across the sea towards Fuertaventura

We walked up here taking our time to check the view as we went. it was interesting to reach the point where you can see the other coastline. I would recommend you go on a less windy day or be prepared for it to be very blowy at points on the rim. You can see all along the prom and... More
