Owner description: An awe-inspiring stretch of volcanic wasteland: a desolate and bleak monument to the power of Mother Nature.

Already mentioned by others, but, to summarise: arrive early to avoid queues (in Feb, mid morning was still fine, midday very busy); no walking allowed, just your vehicle plus the park's coach; no signs, just follow the cars in front of you along the only one road and, when you get to the car park area (with toilets, shop and restaurant) you'll be directed to park and board the coach. The 30-40 min tour by coach has a recorded voice with basic explanations. At the end, when returning to the car park, you will see demonstrations of the underground heat: hot gravel, sort of small geysers, the restaurant's barbecue with geothermal heat. A visit to this park is a must, for the unique scenery formed in the 1730's, when a number of volcanoes emerged and devastated an extended area of the island. Along the way to get to the park, but before the entrance, there is camel ride.

A decent trip out with a decent tour guide called Micheal from Last Minute Travel, the volcano was really informative especially the display of water been poured into the volcano and released as steam.

A fascinating national park showcasing Lanzarote's volcanic landscape. One of our oddest visits to a national park, as you can't actually explore or hike. After paying your entrance fee, you park your car and board a bus which takes a half hour loop though the park (with commentary). We waited to enter the park for close to 45 minutes on a Friday in February, so I can only imagine what 'peek season' is like. Go early and be prepared for a different kind of experience.

A great way to spend a couple of hours, the coach tour included in the 9€ entry is well worth it, the views were spectacular although it's not for the faint hearted if you're not keen on heights.

Totally a place to go. Nice views. If you want to avoid crowds just go early in the morning. Entrance fee is only 9 euros.
