The walk starts from the parking and if you go clockwise at some point you can choose to go steep up or stay left and go around and walk upstairs from the back. If you go right, you reach the top of the crater the...More

The walk is not hard but the oath built on various parts of the circuit are a bit hard - they are volcanic rock made into a path and it takes some concentration to walk on them. The bit up to the crater is quite...More

Well worth the trek, did do it in trainers ok but if you have boots use them for more grip, just enough exercise for those who are not super fit like us, lovely views all the way, recommended

Take the road out of Lajares before the football ground and you will be rewarded with a good walk and view of the caldera. Not too taxing for families and safe for kids as there is a barrier at the top.

Easy hike going anti clockwise up to the top of the crater. About 1 hour up and down. Nice paved path most of the way. Finish off with some nice food in the town of Lajares after that.

We parked next to the place where you can get a camel ride just outside Lajares. Somehow on our way up (I think because we just followed the people in front of us and didn’t pay enough attention) we did not go up the official...More
