Timanfaya Nationalpark, Tinajo

4.6
#1 of 822 in Nature in Spain
Explore the volcanic landscapes of Timanfaya Nationalpark, 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.

  • We went with a bus tour and guide, we were shown a few different experiments as we were guided around, the food for the restaurant is cooked over one of the volcanos opening. We where then driven arou...  more »
  • astonishing! Of course you have to love the extreme landscapes to appreciate this park of volcanoes ... still hot. Don't hesitate to have lunch at the "El Diablo" restaurant, located in the hottest place: it's good (grills in the heat of the volcano) and the prices are very reasonable. A must-see bus tour to navigate the forbidden road... we are not alone, but there is no other choice!

  • Bus ride in Timanfaya Park to admire the volcanoes. Small complaint the reviews are in Spanish, English and German but no French. Too bad because the person who accompanied me did not understand I had to translate Spanish. An app exists to download before the visit preferably. See the natural barbecue and try the restaurant.

  • Amazing scenery. Beautiful piece of nature. Highly recommend a visit when in town. The queue for private cars can take up to nearly 2 hours waiting to enter in the peak of the summer. But if you get a taxi from town you don't have to queue - worth the taxi fare
  • A must do visit. Awesome place. The restaurant had good prices also. You buy tickets at the little hut at the bottom.. we went at 3.30 and got straight on a coach. The coach drive had some jaw dropping moments. I couldn't drive a car around those roads let alone a coach.
  • Superb. At first I felt frustrated not to be able to trek in the park but then it makes so much sense to keep it protected. Yes it's a touristic place where only buses can do the whole tour but this is amazing and so impressive. Highly recommended.
  • Amazing experience. Bus tour around and within the Vulcanos in the Mountains of Fire. Breathtaking moments and spectacular views during the tour in the national park. You can't walk around. It is safe to be guided there. At the visitor center you can experience the heat of the geysers located front of the restaurant, near the car park. Friendly staff looking after the wondering tourists. Recommended it.
  • So many interesting things to see. The demonstrations are fun to watch and the coach trip around the volcano allows you to see some really stunning views. Would love to go back and actually eat in the restaurant - the food looked and smelt amazing. Toilets were spotlessly clean and there were plenty of them.
