Timanfaya Nationalpark, Tinajo

#1 of 818 in Nature in Spain
Explore the volcanic landscapes of Timanfaya Nationalpark, a mountainous area that has been frozen in time since the greatest recorded eruptions took place nearly 300 years ago. This national park forms the core area of a protected biosphere reserve. Access to the park is strictly regulated to guard its delicate wildlife, with only a few footpaths and a short rustic route you can explore by camel. The admission fee includes a bus tour around the interior of the park, with a narrated history of the area in several languages. Located just outside the northern limits of the park is an informative visitor center, with permanent displays and audio-visual presentations explaining the origins of the island and the volcanic activity that formed the park’s unusual scenery.

  • To do without hesitation. The bus ride allows you to travel this place out of the world and time. You feel very small in front of this force of nature. The bus turns give you chills.

  • A mandatory point on the map to explore Lanzarote. Nowhere will you see such landscapes as here. Something amazing and at the same time beautiful

  • The bus tour is spectacular. Volcano demonstrations were good fun. The drive up to the volcano is desolate (is a lava field after all) so be prepared for that. Our kids enjoyed it.
  • Great place! Went with Low cost tours during the south tour. Our tour guide was funny and spoke in English Spanish and German very clearly. Sadly I can't remember his name but he was very funny and made the whole tour that bit more special. The volcanos were breath taking and very interesting and educational
