Extinct volcano which can be seen from anywhere in the south of the island. A short, steep climb on a well defined path from the road. Excellent views of the south of the island and the north of Fuerteventura, and an easy walk around the crater. A little care is required on the decent as the path can be uneven... More

Thanks to Brian S's details of 19 Feb my wife, 5 and a half year old daughter and I walked to the top and around the rim of the volcano. From our villa near the water park and back it took us 2 and a half hours. There were lots of people climbing, of every age, shape and size and... More

From the seafront it is about a 30 minute stroll up dirt/cinder tracks and paths to the top. The route is very gentle and the views from the top are stunning. About 15 minute walk around the top and an easy walk down into the crater. Wear trainers or shoes rather than flip flops.

We walked to the top twice by different routes. The first time there were lots of people taking the direct route from town; the second we walked up the ridge on the right side (less steep) and there was no one at the top. Of course the wind was blowing at about 30-35 knots. About half an hour to the... More

We found some very uesful directions on the happyhiker website which are worth repeating here if you are coming by car:- To get there, turn west off the LZ2 on the northern outskirts of Playa Blanca at the roundabout with the filling station, following Faro de Pechiguera. At the third mini roundabout, turn right at the Jardines Del Sol (there... More

The path up the "mountain" can be seen from the road and is easy to follow. It can be quite windy at the top so a fleece may be a good idea on cooler days. The path around the perimeter of the crater is again easy to follow and is an interesting rather than difficult walk. It is better to... More

This looked a bit daunting from sea level, but is actually a fairly easy steady walk. Well worth the stunning views when you get to the top and great for walking off the holiday excess eating/drinking!
