Timanfaya is a must visit. The landscape has been left untouched since the eruptions of the mid 1730's. I love the colours of the different minerals that drape the volcanoes it's like being on Mars. The bus tour is great, you get to travel in and around the volcanoes and up and over the edges of some of the calderas.... More

We drove here and after a short wait to be let up to the small car park, We quickly transferred to a bus, which was included in cost of admission. This bus took us on an informative 40 minute drive through lava fields, explaining the islands history and how the volcanoes formed the island. This was breath-taking and the views... More

Had a great day out at Timanfaya. Very windy there though so be warned. Roads a bit hairy but was ok, you can pay to go on a camel ride too, about 6 euros per person

Great experience to go and see all of this scenery, very interesting seeing different experiments being carried out at the park and we even got to ride the camel

I imagine a lot of people will disagree with this... the landscape is spectacular but having to sit on a bus for an hour to see it becomes a bit of a chafe. My niece and nephew had lost interest after about 15 minutes. But maybe this says more about the youth of today! In all honesty it would have... More

The Volcanic Experience of Timanfaya was highly memorable for the reasons I will explain. Our particular tour guide brought to life this brilliant excursion displaying great knowledge of the events that led to the formation of this geographical wonder. The demonstrations provided were impressive and the views throughout stunning. The restaurant was good as well. An excursion not to be... More

Went here by car and found it easy. Joined a queue while on the main road in but could see the hut where you paid (9 euros each for adults). Once paid we drove a little further where staff showed us where to park. It was well controlled and organised. The day we went the cloud was low so was... More

I would highly recommend this your. It was 3 hours and it was fascinating to find out about the volcanoes on the island- which I wouldn't have a huge interest in. Our tour guide was very funny and made facts more interesting with his views. This tour included driving carefully on narrow roads around the volcanoes- our tour guide had... More

We visited in the morning, get there early as it was extremely busy, also you can't pay with card. The views are spectacular, we got on the coach and didn't realised you just drove around and came back to the start, no stops. We thought you would get to look around but that wasn't the case. The little displays were... More
