I absolutely recommend this trip when visiting Lanzarote, the scenery is magnificent, my children who are 10 and 7 loved this trip and were totally fascinated by it all. We had a car hire for a few days, we arrived to the park entrance at around 11:30 we did have a bit of a wait on the main road but was not to long. Entrance fee was €27 for a family of 4, once we got through the entrance area we drove a bit further along and had to wait again another 10 mins or so before a parking space was available, again no big deal.
The parking area is very well organised a few attendants working together directing cars to a parking space. Once parked we had a steep walk up the hill to get onto the tour bus. There was no room for us on the bus, so another 10 mins or so another bus came along. You can not drive yourself or walk around the national park.
We got on the bus and sat on the right hand side...a good side of the bus to sit on as we found later on, the tour takes around 45 mins and there is a recorded tour narrative in Spanish/English and in German, which is really interesting. The bus stops a few times along the route so you can take pictures, which is where we found our side of the bus was a good choice....A lot of the points of interest were right outside our window side and those on the left hand side were having to leave their seats a few times to get pics. Only one time did we have to leave our seat to take a pic out of the left side..something to think about.
After the tour on the bus (The Star Wars theme at the end was an excellent touch!) we got off the bus to go and see the 'pit' a small volcanic crater that projects heat, the organisers there occasionally threw in some hay to set it on fire then we were directed up to the top area where we were shown a mini geyser, the kids loved this. Just in the restaurant area there is another pit where chickens were being roasted over it and the smell was divine.
We didnt eat here, and we did find the gift shop very expensive but the actually tour was our highlight really worth visiting.
Our tip was to try and sit on the right hand side of the tour bus.
