A must do. We hired a car and parked in Lajares, leave the town going past the football ground and as you leave the built up area park the car. It was best to go early morning as the area was almost deserted, I think...More

Nice path to the vulcanic area. We went with fat e bikes and then we walk to the summit. There are many squirrels asking for food. You should bring some nuts or something similar to feed them. Great experience. Must see

Hired a car whilst on holiday nearby and decided to do this walk as a last minute thing before returning the car. The parking is limited and not organised so be aware. Path is loose gravel/scree but ok otherwise. The walk up is lovely with...More

It’s a beautiful volcano crater. It’s around 40-60 minutes walk from the village. If you go through right hand side walk it’s much easier but if you like hiking through mountains you can use left hand side but be careful as it’s a bit steep...More

It was a very good for morning trek. Parking by the roadside, had 40 min walk uphill and ~ 40 min return. Refreshing, good first time life experience to see volcanic crater.

You have very nice views all you walking. It takes you 1h to be ob top. Good example of old vulcano, it was a little bit windy but is normal for canarians and December. Walk is for everyone, kid and older people.

Well marked out walks and paths up to the crater. Make sure you wear solid shoes with good tread as the scree is quite slippery and it is easy to lose your footing. It's definitely worth the walk up and doesn't take too long. I...More

Not the most difficult of walks but at least you can say you’ve done it. If temperature high do first thing. We did it around 10.30 in 29C and got a little warm! Top part is a little tricky but nothing the four year old...More

This is a fantastic trail starting just outside Lajares on the road to Majanicho to the top of Calderon Hondo, one of the many extinct volcanos on Fuerteventura. Sturdy shoes are needed, but the trail is walkable by most ages and abilities. From the top,...More

This is quite an easy walk for all the family - best to wear shoes/trainers as it's rocky in places. From the car park just up the road towards Majanicho past the football ground the well laid out path winds up to a viewing platform...More
