  • Very nice hike through the lava and white caldera. Accessible to everyone except for people with fear of the void. Hiking shoes recommended. We put 3 hours round trip from the parking lot (we have not come full circle but came back after arriving at the top of the volcano). The view from the top of the volcano is magnificent. Worth the drive.

  • When I learned that not all the Timanfaya National Park was prohibited for the hiker who loves free access and Lanzarote's largest crater also was outside the restricted zone of the National Park, I decided to visit him on the first occasion that it had. But reality surpassed all expectations. The approximation from the village of Mancha Blanca, near Tinajo, is performed by a lava field, called malpais by these lands, where you can admire how the last eruption of 1730-1736 which formed the Timanfaya National Park, left an immense extension of black volcanic lava that flowed like a river on their way to the sea. In the middle is found with the volcano's mountain stew and the much larger white boiler. Both stand out for its reddish-white, color over the river of black lava that surrounds them and which could not cover them, because of their height. You can even see that between both volcanoes, lava had crossed like a river with its lava waterfalls and all, when there was a small difference in height that save. The stew can be found remains of human settlements when the micro-climate of the interior of the crater was used for agricultural purposes. Even there are remains of an ancient cistern when finally you reach the volcano Caldera Blanca, a short but slope up diagonally, allows us to climb us on the edge of the crater that there is for the first time in its entirety. With about 1000 m in diameter, you can walk around all the periphery that thanks to Pythagoras, we know that it measures almost pi, i.e. more than 3 km. In total, counting all the approximation from the parking of white spot, reach the base of white boiler, climb to the crater, surround him and return, leave the order of 15 km of easy hiking, not suitable for cardiac route. As anecdotes I can tell you that the first time I did it, spent a cold and it rained I again and again with racheada Lanzarote wind rain in the month of July. However, the second time, weather was excellent in the month of July also and we saw a pregnant German arriving on the edge of white boiler and directing his steps to surround around the volcano. But the record did a couple we met at the foot of the white boiler with a newborn baby, few weeks in a backpack of chest carrying the father walking with finger flip-flops by the slag of lava, as the mother walked as escocida a few steps behind keeping barely balance on some sea cucumbers of platform and 10 cm heel.

  • It took us about 3 hours go back on this tour. Despite my lack of sporting experiences, I still managed to climb up the hand the volcano :-) The market until the volcano part remains the most complicated: no tree and so no shade, full of pebbles. It is better to plan walking shoes / sneakers. However, explanatory panels of the surroundings and the why and how of the volcano are laid out along the route (it seems to us more fast) views of the huge crater of the Caldera Blanca which can go around if we want to and on a pretty part of the volcanic landscape that Lanzarote offers us! :-) In conclusion: my favorite of my stay there :-)
