Just amazing Apr 25, 2016
Timanfaya National Park, also known as Montañas de fuego (fire mountains) is the central volcanic zone in Lanzarote island.

It is located in the southwest of the island. You can get there by bus or by your own car. I hardly recommend you renting a car: you'll get total freedom and they are really cheap (my experience: Opel Corsa 4 days just 90€).

If you're going to stay in the island for several days, the best option is to get the "bono". We chose the 6 ticket one and it cost 30€.

Once you're inside, you get into a bus and they make you a tour around the zone (walking around the park is forbidden because it's quite dangerous). The tour is about 30 minutes and it is in spanish, english and german. It's like being on Mars!!

It's a place you can't miss if you are in Lanzarote. Amazing!!

A walk on the moon Dec 06, 2012
This whole Island is amazing!

I took a tour to the Timanfaya park and the whole time I felt i was in another planet. The lava formed crazy sculptures and tunes and when you get up there, at the top of the park, you have amazing views!

The parkland is entirely made up of volcanic soil. The statue "El Diablo" by César Manrique is its symbol.

Most roads are closed to cars in order to protect the fragile nature of the area, although there's camel rides and popular foot-trips.

Great volcanic landscape Dec 29, 2007
The landscape here is a barren, alien view of twisted lava and cindercones. The only vegetation is a few hardy shrubs. There are buses that drive through the park giving a good view. The magma still seethes under the surface, it can get up to 600C just a few feet down. One trick they do here is to stuff dry twigs into a hole and they burst into flame from the heat, or pour water down a hole to form an instant geyser. There is a restaurant here where you can have your food cooked by the heat from the volcano.
