Timanfaya National Park, Tinajo

4.5
Explore the volcanic landscapes of Timanfaya National Park, 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.

  • The input costs €10 per person, you head to where Park and you can take a bus (which includes the entrance) which gives you a tour of the Park. It's impressive, very very nice!

  • Very interesting visit to the mountains of fire, the road to get there seems apocalyptic with all the dark lava on the roadside. Unfortunately we found bad weather and the view from the bus was not the best but still interesting, nice too see how they cook the chicken with the heat of the volcano.

  • Excellent. Well worth the money, and definitely take the bus tour. Just be aware at peak times there is about an hour wait queuing in your car. If you take a taxi or coach, they avoid the queues.
  • All very nice except for the bus.. It is very difficult to take photos through the windows... Frankly it would be better if the buses were open air like on safari. The premises are lovely and the staff super. So much to see with so little visual capability of the incredible volcanic landscapes.
  • Fantastic unique visit. Bargain entry price of 10 euros per adult which includes a bus tour around the park. Food in the restaurant wasn't a rip off like many places where you are captive. Avoid the middle of the day as we waited over an hour to get in, they only let you in as others leave. Still probably the highlight of our holiday.
  • Great time . Best to go after 3pm as it's only €8. We had a disabled family member with us so we payed for our entry and went straight up to the car park and showed our disabled blue badge and we're directed to the top of the car park. This made it so much easier for us .we were able to acess the buses as well because the driver drop the bus down for us and my friend was able to climb in so much easier. This made the whole experience even more pleasurable for us all .The park is amazing.
  • Love it..historic .Amazing bar with snacks..Great experience. The bus ride to the volcano heights is scary but well worth doing. And the natural geyser on site is definitely worth the viewing. A great excursion . Really nice little gift shop too if the kids get a bit bored and not too expensive either for souvenirs or gifts.
