A short steep walk is rewarded by a great view

Took the guided walk from Marina Rubicon. All the way up the view changes & is really spectacular from walking around the rim at the top. The entire walk took around 2 hours

This is a must do when in Playa Blanca. Takes about 1 & a half hours to walk up & around the crater but it's well worth it.

Beautiful accommodation, fantastic views. Have been to playa blanca several times but this place beats the rest. Car essential, but the peace, tranquillity and views absolutely first class. You do Actually get what has been advertised the pool and garden BBQ area are shared but we have been here 10 days, but have only overlapped two days with sharing, not... More

We could see this volcano from our apartment so decided to climb it. Left it until late afternoon to avoid the heat. The climb is relatively easy and not too long and before you know it you are staring across the large crater. It's easy enough to climb down in to it and stroll across the bottom but walking right...

Having often looked at Montana Roja, we decided it was time to bite the bullet and see if we could climb to the top. First bit was easy as you can drive to the edge of the walking path and park up with the walk to the top taking only 20 minutes or so. Once there you have a wonderful... More

Walked up twice on my hols, was lovely views and wasn't a difficult walk up! Wouldn't recommend going in flip flops though as there are lots of little loose stones! Great to go in the evening too to watch the sunset, but take a cardi as its windy and gets a little nippy in the evening!

Have climbed up this inactive volcano on each of the last 2 visits here. It's a fairly easy ascent for all ages. The whole family got to the top with little difficulty. The views from the top are amazing and well worth making the climb for. Also you can walk around or through the inactive crater inside and leave a... More

Took a run up the slope of Montana roja one hot sunny afternoon on my recent hols in playa blanca. The mountain looms over the western part of the resort. The ascent looks steeper and higher than it is and even with my current moderate fitness levels I made the run up with ease. At a walk it should be... More

Great views from the top on Montana Roja. We set off early morning in the dark to catch the sunrise and was not disappointed very enjoyable and free. Not until you reach the top you realise the scale of the volcano Wrote names with rocks inside the volcano as well

A must do for anyone staying in Playa Blanca who enjoys walking and scenery. I found it a relatively easy climb (I am 60) - about 30 mins from the Timanfaya Palace where I was staying to the rim of the crater. I left around 7.00am and headed in the general direction of the 'mountain'. Once I approached the base... More
