Timanfaya is well worth visiting, particularly if you've not been to kther thermal areas. It's well organised and run but I'm certain I would not eat in the cafe as it's too warm for comfort for.a Northern European dweller. I'm sure the food is excellent. Do visit Timanfaya to understand the world.

Echoing what many other travellers have said, this is a must do trip. That said it was our third visit to Lanzarote before we made the time; it was a cloudy day and not one for the beach but ideal for this. We arrived at 9.30 am in our hire car, no queues and straight into the park and left... More

The views at this park are honestly sensational. But the overall experience was let down but the lack of communication, order and general chaos. There is a nice gift shop to commemorate your trip. But make sure you get there early, we arrived for 10am and got parked straight away, by the time we left there was a queue of... More

Took the kids on a trip to see the volcano as they'd had a project at school around this topic. The bus tour was interesting and was worth doing, but it could have had more scientific information for me. Seeing the food being cooked over the pit and feeling the heat was good. From previous reviews we knew to get... More

Breathtaking scenery, really alien. Hard to believe you are on the same planet. It's such a beautiful drive. Glad we rented a car rather than going on a coach trip as we were able to go at our own pace. Would have been nice to see some pull-ins to stop and take in the scenery. Paid for the entrance to...

My son was desperate to see the volcano so it was a 'must do'. Luckily I'd read reviews so knew to arrive early however I'll stress do arrive 9-9.30am!!! We arrived 10am and had to wait 40mins in the car park queue - in April, hardly height of the season. The car park's very small so I can understand the... More

We came here on a tour and enjoyed every minute. The views are stunning. You can see the different lava deposits and some if the rock formations look like the craters on the moon. The demonstrations showing the heat and geyser reactions were fascinating too. Great way to spend a few hours.

Interesting visit, good bus tour with some amazing views. Make sure to see the food being cooked over the open pit by the heat from the centre of the earth !
