Had a great trip here. Did it on an organised tour. The demonstrations were amazing, the views were breathtaking and it was altogether an ideal day out. I would advise taking a jumper as the wind is strong up there and a bit chilly at this time of year, especially prior to lunch time. If you get the chance, definitely... More

This park is well worth the visit it is packed with wonderful sights, information, and demonstrations showing how hot the volcano still is, you will not be disappointed. It was very windy the day we visited although not cold it was slightly uncomfortable but it was February.

The Volcanic park is really interesting. You can see lots of it from the main road but for around £30 for family of four, you can go to the visitor centre. you get a ticket for a private road coach tour of the park and that is probably the main thing you get for your money. I am not convinced... More

Get there early, otherwise the queue will be quite long and you can't see it from the bottom where the barriers are. The car park at the top is quite small and very steep in places. Make sure your hand brake works. Nice restaurant, coffee was cheap €1.50ish. Check out the under floor heating!!!! The coach trip around the park... More

Based on previous comments, drove up to the park and arrived at 0920 expecting a wait to get in but were allowed straight into the park and on parking at the top, were directed straight onto a bus and at 0930 were on our way. Awesome views and photo opportunities and upon return watched the geyser and fire demonstrations. Beginning... More

Amazing experience to live, visiting one of the most strangest place on heart. Many volcans to see, ancient lava stone flow everywhere. The visit consist of a guided tour with bus (cars are not allowed to go there) lasting almost 30 minutes. The long line before the visit and the strong wind, especially in the morning, is well compensated by... More
