Great experience walking up the dormant volcano. You can walk round the rim of the crater and walk inside too. Brilliant experience. Need a good pair of trainers and reasonably fit. Well worth it.

The selection of bottle beers was poor, the food although was very good, wasn't plentiful, for example the steak which was excellent came with one potato and a couple of vegetables, not exactly filling. The selection of starters are a bit odd too. The deserts are nice but selection is just OK. Overall the quality ambience, & staff here are... More

We've been up Montana Roja 3 or 4 times over the years - I even did it on my 50th birthday. The views from the rim of the caldera are excellent giving all round views of the south of the island. With Fuerteventura just over the water , its easily visible. The walk up isnt too hard but it can... More

Started just before 9.00am from the Atlantic Gardens and found our way to the start of the path up. Once at the top had great views all over South Lanzarote. You can walk either way around the rim, we chose anti clockwise. If you prefer going up to coming down, go clockwise. Once back at your path to go down,... More

As relatively experienced walkers the walk up didn't take long, however it is quite steep and for us the biggest challenge was the wind which was incredibly strong. The views from the top were great and the walk down was fine although we had walking shoes, those in flip flops had a slightly tougher time.

Fab walk up a stoney path to the top of the lip of the caldera and then along the rim to the very highest point! Not too strenuous but allow at least an hour to get the most from the experience. Great 360 degree view at the top where you can see the whole coastline plus the outline of Fuerterventura... More

Stayed at rubicon palace next to the volcano. Hotel staff took guests up the hill on a Sunday. We joined. 35 mins up and 35 back. Tried the walk again later in the week. Not very challenging. Not steep, but due to the surface could be slippy depending. Amazing view, well worth the walk.

We took a risk taking our 4 year old up on the mountain but she did better than expected. We stopped just below the top as it became too steep for her and we were worried about the descend on the way back. We did see a family going up at a good pace with their 7-8 year old son... More

A very easy walk up the dead volcan. Once you get to the stop you are rewarded with superb views over south Lanzarotte.
