Timanfaya National Park (Spain) Reviews
Description:Country: Spain / World Region: Europe / Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain. Spanish national park.
Newest Review: ... and historically. You pay for the car at the entrance to the park and then you follow the road in the park until you reach the parking area near the Diablo restaurant. To reach this car park it is quite a distance from the gate and I would imagine that the queues really build up in summer as we were in a long line and the car park was very full. A word of warning for wheelchair users, ... more

Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands and is not a large island by any stretch of the imagination so if you hire a car within a week you should see most of what the island has to offer. Lanzarote was almost wiped out by a series of volcanic eruptions which lasted over six years from 1730. Amazingly eleven villages were buried in molten lava but incredibly, no one was killed. In 1974 the area was declared a national park which today provides tourists with an opportunity to see the effects of these years of volcanic activity.

Timanfaya - Fire Mountains - these were created during eruptions occuring between 1730 and 1736 where the landscape was changed forever. This is one of the must do excursians in my opinion when travelling to Lanzarote. I am really lucky as my in-laws have a villa in Puerto Del Carmen so have been to this beautiful island many times. If asked what the best trip is for first timers I would say Timanfaya national park is up there with the best. On route to the park you will pass the Camel Park where for a small fee you can take a 20minute ride on them. Personally speaking I didnt like the look of it - the Camels all looked exhausted and ...
