Great views, great experience. The walk up is quite gradual and you can keep stopping to take in the sights. The wind is strong which keeps you from getting too hot even in the mid afternoon sun. My PlayStation addicted son loved it and we have been up there twice in 2 days. Well worth a visit.

I was lucky that my wife chose to rent a villa in the Alisios Estate because it's literally at the foot of this volcano. If, like me, you do a lot of running, it's a dream come true. A short scramble up the west face gets you to the summit ridge in about 15 to 20 mins from our villa... More

Our last night in Lanzarote, we just had to walk up Montana Roja, which was so dominant behind where we were staying in Faro Park. We drove along Av. Faro Pechiguera, turned up Calle Francia, took second turn on left and parked close to where path starts. The walk up took around 15 min at a gentle pace, taking in... More

As I had looked up at Montana Roja from my rented villa for 2 weeks and thought the climb looked a bit daunting for a not very fit 64 year old. However after reading in TripAdvisor about the path up I decided to have a go with my son. It's a reasonable climb not too steep. One athletic type ran... More

From the beach this is the volcano to the left of Playa Blanca! There is a well trodden path visible from some distance.... just park in the nearest street. Takes about 20 minutes to get to the top, the crater (huge) lies behind the ridge and you then have a great view to the coastline beyond. Would recommend wearing trainers... More

First things first....climb this in a cloudy \ cool day. We got a taxi from Rubicon Marina to the start of the mountain climbing path. Took about 15 minutes to gamble to the top and then about another 30 minutes to walk around the edge of the mountain. You can walk down into the centre of the old volcano but... More

Not so much a mountain but a large hill which is essentially a dormant volcano overlooking the eastern edge of Playa Blanca! Be careful if its windy as its very exposed on top! You can walk around the rim easily and the views are fab but its quite slippery underf ood on the dusty tracks so take care. You must... More

It's about a 30 minutes trek to the top of the volcano but you are rewarded with absolutely stunning views, one of the highlights of our stay, take a bottle of water and sunscreen.

We walked to the top withe relative ease and the 6 and 4year old also managed it. It was a lovely experience and the kids really enjoyed the experience of climbing up a volcano, very exciting at 6&4! When we got to the top we climbed down into the crater and the kids enjoyed writing their names with stones as... More

While in Playa Blanca my wife and I decided to tackle this walk/climb and we're so glad we did. Yes it's a bit of a trek to get on to the ridge but your rewarded with stunning views.we walked all the way around then down through the middle and back out. I'll be doing it again before I head home.... More
