Totally worth the drive up. Amazing views ovee the crater, and the rest of the island. Combine with a tour of the Mondalon vineyard (Thursday and Friday) and you will have a great half day!

Well worth the effort to wander around the perimeter or at least the safe part..! A good parking area at the end of a single track road in and out. Great scenery and a fabulous view into the crater itself.. Looks to be a few...More

The rain and fog were so fierce, that nothing could be seen or distinguished. A great disappointment. A real waste of a bus ride and excursion.

10,000 years ago there was a bog boom that created this pretty volcanic crater. Today, you can walk on a well maintained trail from the rim to the bottom or walk on a trail around the top. Both walks give you great views of the...More

Bus 311 does not go to the top of the peak but goes past the turn off for the peak. It stops at a small bar/restaurant with a bodiga behind. If you walk anti-clockwise round the crater the walk comes out about half way up... More
