Reasons for trip

We visited here earlier this year, the barren Martian landscape of the Lanzarote National Park.

Timanfaya National Park is home to the Montanas del Fuego or Mountains of Fire, which were created in the early 18th century when more than 100 volcanoes belched into life and destroyed over 50 square kilometres of land on the west coast of the island. You need not expect any further eruptions as the last ones were in the early 19th century and the landscape has been virtually unaltered since 1736.

At the coach and car park situated at the top of the mountain there are the usual toiletry facilities and a café where all the food is cooked using the heat from a well deep within the mountain. Cannot comment on the quality of the food as we had only had breakfast around an hour before but it certainly looked good.

Access to the park is strictly regulated so it’s not possible to walk freely among the volcanoes. However, there are free guided walks (available in English) along two paths. Entrance to the site includes a coach tour of the volcanoes with an audio commentary. If you prefer, it’s also possible to arrange a tour by camel.
