National Park of Timanfaya

The National Park of Timanfaya in Lanzarote is a Volcanic Field where visitors can appreciate a great variety of amazing geological phenomena. Along with this are some 180 different plant species! The volcanic eruptions that began in 1730 and lasted six years plus those in 1824 created new craters, it entombed whole villages and buried the most fertile terrain on the island.

Going towards the park you will come across Islote de Hilario, here one of the main tourist attractions of the park where you can see the artificial geysers, that are provoked by pouring cold water into a magma chamber that is located at a depth of 3km.

El Diablo is a restaurant that was famously created by the artist Cesar Manrique, you will find this situated in El Islote also. Here you can taste typical Canarian food that has been cooked using a natural oven and grilled over a geothermal heat. After such a kind of lunch you certainly will be still more receptive for the miracles nature has done here. The restaurant is open between 12 and 3.30pm.

There are a few options for the way in which tourist's can visit the park, there is either a Camel Ride which is used by the more adventurous, by bus / coach tour - this is the only way you can go all the way up to the top. This covers a 14km during which you will reach some of the most famous places in the park, and can listen to the narration by the priest of Yaiza which is about the volcanic eruptions, Or last but no means least you can visit the park on foot with one of the two guided routes - the Litoral route or the Tremesana route. This is for groups of up to a maximum of 7, and have to be previously arranged.

You can do this either by telephone or by visiting the administration offices;

Address: C/ Laguneta, 64. 

Telephone: 0034 928 84 02 38/ 928 84 23 40

Whichever preferred method of visiting the park you will pass a sea of petrified lava and volcanic ashes, Some of the craters of the volcano Montana de Fuego - Mountain of Fire - are still active, and just centimeters from the surface temperature arrives to some 400ºC. If you pour water on a crater, it will vaporize in a fraction of a second, and if you put small branches there, they will start to burn immediately.

This park is open from 9am until 6pm and the last visit on the volcano tour is at 3pm.

This is a fabulous day out for all, whether you are young or old - definitely worth a visit and attraction not to be missed!
