A visit to the national park is a must, we hired a car. The location is easy to find and driving on the island is straight forward. If you are visiting multiple attractions on the island then it is worth buying a ticket that allows you to visit three locations and receive a discount. You arrive at a stone hut... More

We decided to visit the park as part of a Tui excursion from out hotel,as we've always said we would visit if ever we went to Lanzarote,we were not disappointed it is an amazing place,really sets you thinking about the eruptions all those years ago. When you drive through the park it really takes your breath, we've never seen a... More

Don't expect red hot lava or a good museum to explain all the vulcanisity but the coach trip around the volcanic landscape is good. It's value for money if you get the 30euro ticket for this and 5 other attractions but get to all of them early if you don't like queuing.

Timanfaya was definitely a place to be seen. We went here on a tour, which was definitely the right thing to do. The tour bus could pass the extremely long queue of cars and we didn't have to wait at all to get to the guided tour within the park as we stayed with the same bus the whole time.... More

Well worth a visit if you have a free day. The tour through the volcanoes is fascinating. I would recommend setting off early though as the queues can be lengthy. We arrived just after 10am and they were already queuing up the main road. The parking system is very well organised by the staff. The gift shop is nice, with... More

Everyone saying this is a must-do when on Lanzarote is correct. However as it is so popular it gets busy and a little bit of planning can make your visit a lot happier. You can check the queue of cars waiting to get in as you approach on the road from Yaiza. It took us an hour and a half... More

With family on the coach around the park. We arrived within an hour of opening and got straight onto the bus. Any later and we would have had difficulty parking. The coach driving was impressive as the road is really narrow and winding. The recorded commentary in Spanish English and German was informative without being over bearing. The scenary was... More

We took a tip from another Tripadvisor review and arrived here around 9:45am which is the best thing to do if you have you own transport to avoid long queues on entry. The bus tours start just before 10am - we were on the first bus with commentary in both English and Spanish. The coach tour takes around 50 minutes... More

Nice view in timanfaya park! We went there by car and wait 15 minutes to take the bus. The tour took less than 1 hour and we had a good time there.

Beautiful landscapes, interesting bus tour (it's included in ticket price). Really felt like not on Earth. But don't forget to take a jacket, because it was very windy.
