Timanfaya National Park (Parque Nacional de Timanfaya)

Daily from 9am to 6pm (with the last entry at 5pm)
Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote, Canary Islands

The Basics

Visitors pay a small fee to enter the park, and it includes a guided coach tour—but lines can get long during busy season. Avoid the wait and get round-trip transport from elsewhere in Lanzarote by booking a half-day or full-day tour in advance. Many of these tours take you through the park on a coach bus and make stops so you can walk or hike the volcanic landscape. Others include options to ride a 4x4 or camel through the lava fields. To see what kinds of flavors the volcanic earth can produce, pick a tour that celebrates the area as a wine region and includes wine tastings too.

Excursion to Timanfaya National Park
Really enjoyed the half day tour! The guide was friendly, provided lots of information and made sure we knew the schedule and how long we had at each place. The only downside is your on the bus a lot of the day for pick up and drop offs. The tour itself is really amazing and overall I’d recommend it! The half tour was ideal for me and just right.

Half Day South Lanzarote Tour and Timanfaya National Park
Wonderful tour. Informative and fun. Had two 18 year olds along and they thought it was really interesting, got to ride a camel (!) and have two small tastes of wine. Our tour guide Antonio was fantastic. We stopped for lunch and i would highly recommend the buffet option as there were fantastic choices and the food was really good. Thanks!

Everything was great. Pick-up on time. Timanfaya was amazing. Camel ride is short but worth it for the experience.

Guided tour: Timanfaya National Park and La Geria
Michael was an excellent and amusing guide. He's from Lanzarote and knows the island inside out. He gave extensive information and history about Lanzarote as well as about the volcanoes and wine. The very skilled bus driver coped admirably with the sometimes precipitous route through the volcanoes!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • While much of your tour may be by coach, dress comfortably for the outdoors, as the terrain is somewhat rugged.

  • The El Diablo Restaurant is located at the top of the Islote de Hilario, the tallest of the Fire Mountains (Montañas de Fuego). It's a great place to grab a bite to eat with a panoramic view of the park.

  • Public restrooms are available at Timanfaya.

How to Get There

Timanfaya is accessible by car, but visitors can't explore the park independently. Be prepared to join a tour even if you drive there yourself. There are a variety of guided tours with transport from popular resort areas on Lanzarote, such as Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca, or even from the neighboring island of Fuerteventura via ferry from Corralejo.

When to Get There

The park is open year-round, and the weather is almost always pleasant— ranging from 63°F (17°C) to 77°F (25°C). Summer is the busiest season, followed closely by winter when travelers from mainland Europe escape cold temperatures to vacation on the islands. If visiting during these peak seasons, head to the park early or late in the day to avoid the biggest crowds. The view at sunset is particularly special.

Geothermal Experiments You Can See in Action

Although the volcanoes lie dormant, the area remains a strong source of geothermal energy thanks to a boiling chamber of magma 2.5 miles (4 km) below the surface. This means there are certain areas in the park where you can toss a bundle of branches into a pit and see it burst into flames or pour water on the ground and watch it turn to steam.
