It is what it is.... A volcano, didn't really spend long there as there's not really much to look at.... Views are nice though

We visited Timanfaya national park with the grand tour. Which is a great way to see the island. If tou going there by a hire car, go there early, as midday the busiest time and you might spend 2hours till you get to carpark. Tours got priority. There is a bus which takes you around the magma rivers. Amazing views.... More

The scenery here is amazing, my daughter described 'as what the future would look like when everything has gone'.. OK a bit depressing but she is 12 and likes Sci-fi! I think that meant she enjoyed the trip. You drive to the entrance and pay 9 euros each, this also pays for a coach tour lasting about 25 minutes which... More

Lovely half day trip up to the volcano. We did it with Thomas Cook we also went to aloe Vera place and camel ride park. Our 11 year old had a great day. No food or drink included. Make sure you take water. £98 for 2 adults and 1 child.

Get there early at least before 10 cause it gets very busy. The coach trip around the park takes about 30 minutes and there are a few other things to do there but you are there no longer than two hours.

Get there early to avoid ques as it builds up quick as you can say. "Its a bit rocky here, ain't it love?" an awesome place to spend a couple of hours with the kids. They couldn't take enough photos. The demonstrations, although simple, will wow even the most stubborn of 13 year olds. It's a must see and even... More

It was a Thompson trip out. It was for a half day and was very interesting. Got to do a bit of wine rating as well

Amazing scenery, but get there early as the queues build up quickly. You cant drive around the park and have to board a coach that takes you around, which, when you see the narrow roads, you will understand why. The guisers at the top are well worth watching too (even if its just to watch the people jump everytime)

We visited as part of an island tour and this was the highlight. So well set out and plenty to see and think about. I can't recommend it highly enough

The Timanfaya National Park is a must visit trip if you are staying on the island! You learn so much about the island and is great fun too! You won't believe what happened to the island and how much history it gives! We went on a coach trip so we were able to drive around the park but I'm not... More
