Well worth making the trek up Montana Road, the local volcano on the edge of the town. Walk around the creators edge with great views all round.

Takes about 45 mins to walk up it. We left at just after 7am (staying at H10 Timanfaya Palace) and were back by 8.30 maybe 08.45. Cant miss the path to walk up. Its best to go early before the sun comes up. Fantastic views and cooler.

Believe me, if not used to hill climbing take the gentle path up and down and ensure you have sturdy walking shoes. No flip flops. Views are stunning once at the top. No amenities so bring own refreshment. Very windy once up top but you will still get burnt!! A great way to pass a couple of hours or so.... More

This is Well worth going up to view. The views from the top are breathtaking. You can walk the whole way around and inside the cone. Well worth the walk.

Firstly, starting the walk at 9am was good - watching those struggling to ascend at 10am proved so too. If driving from Playa Blanca, aim for Calle Montana Baja for free on street parking. The walk up the rocky path, only steep on occasions, took about 15mins. A leisurely stroll around the whole crater rim took about 30mins, as the... More

Four of us set out at 6.30a.m. to reach the Volcano for sunrise. The walk to top is fairly easy and well worth the great views. Really glad we made the effort to do this.

My 10 year old daughter and I tackled the walk up Montana Roja and are so pleased that we did. Took about 1/2 and hour to walk up the path, we spent about an hour up there and took hundreds of photo's. Really enjoyed the experience. Best of all, it cost nothing to do. My number 1 thing from our... More
