Avery interesting tour the scenary was mind blowing the only thing that was poor was the food cooked on the heat from the volcano the chicken still had blood in it and the pork chops overcooked but apart from that it was a good day out the tour guide was very informative

We had a short wait in the queue to get in - must be based on car park availabilty, but it's worth it to then get the bus tour round the lava fields. Spectacular scenes. the demonstations of the heat at the visitor centre are good too.

Although i can imagine this could be interesting on a good day, our experience couldn't have been much worst. We queued for over an hour and a half on a narrow windy park access road to the car park. U turns to turn around were out of the question once your in the queue cause of the narrow road. We... More

We did the Grand tour and this encompassed a visit to Timanfaya, this is an amazing place and the double deck bus tour through the barren landscape was breath taking, if you decide to go here, best to go on an organised bus tour as cars are not allowed to drive through the landscape only visit the actual volcano and...

Fantastic trip around the volcanic park. Well worth a visit and great value for money. We drove to the park and then took part in the bus tour around the volcanoes taking you through the history and giving you facts about the volcanoes and habitat. The bus also stops at quite a few places to allow you to take photos.... More

Prior to this we went on a 20 min camel track for six euro each .... good value. The trip round about 20 km of the park had ample photo stops and at the centre it was good to see the real bbq , instant fire and geezer.

We had to turn back and get to Yaiza to find a cash machine (although they do take card payment up... More
