It is a very different experience to see the rugged and harsh landscape. It definitely makes you think on about the might of nature. The demonstration on the active volcano is interesting. The barren landscape has a beauty of its own. Worth a visit when you are in Lanzarote. First Minute / Last Minute does a convenient tour.

its a coach tour of how the island was formed and when it happened. At the end of the coach tour, you are taken to the cafe where food and souveniers are sold. Outside the cafe there are displays of the volcano's power which are impressive, Tip: do not look over the large hole where they cook food because you... More

We visited the national park on what is called the 'Grand Tour' in Lanzarote. The tour of the national park was very interesting and informative. We had been advised to go by bus on the national park tour because buses get priority over cars. I'm very delighted we listened to that advice as cars were queueing for considerable distances as...

A brilliant visit on a bus so that you can actually see the full effect of the volcano. Interesting to see the heat that still exists just below the surface.

Timanfaya is beautiful and definitely worth it especially if you haven't seen many volcanic places. You can't drive the "moon route" yourself but the busses go all the time. The colours are unreal,especially in sunny days and the volcanic grill is interesting even if you don't eat there. The touris not badly priced and you do get your money's worth.

Just beautiful. We arrived at around 3 pm and did not have to wait at all to get in. Got the bus immediately that took us on a tour of the park. Difficult to get clear pictures from the bus due to the windows. Front of the bus might be better for pictures. We then watched a few shows demonstrating... More

Costly but justified. Went with Thomsons and had a brilliant time. Started around 14:30 and ended up with a lovely meal on the summit station along with a beautiful sunset. Expensive but worth it as a one off experience

Went on a coach trip to the volcano, well organised and great experience. I would recommend going on a coach trip but wouldn't bother with the full South Tour if i was to do it again. Bit of a moneymaking business with stopping for coffee, camel rides and then optional lunch in a dormitory style restaurant and then a visit... More

If you go on holiday to Lanzarote the one trip you MUST take is to Timanfaya National Park. Whether you go on an organised tour through your travel operator or hire a car and make your own way to the park, there is plenty of parking and the tour around the site is done on the sites own buses -...
