    Timanfaya National Park
    Stop: 4 hours -
    This is probably the ultimate volcano experience, offering the thrill of walking up, around and into three spectacular volcanoes and to be as close to the protected National Park of Timanfaya on foot as possible. The first stage of the excursion is to the edge of the crater La Rilla, one of Lanzarote’s most impressive examples of volcanic activity. The group will climb steadily to the edge of the crater where during a rest for refreshments, the guide will explain the construction of this beautiful volcano and the life that inhabits it. The second part of the excursion is around the base of Montaña Colorada, one of the last volcanoes to erupt during the activity of 1730 – 1736. The stunning cinder cone shines a beautiful red color which is particularly intense for a volcano of this type. This easy walk takes the group around the base of the volcano making stops en route where the guide will explain points of natural or geological interest. The walk also offers the group the opportunity to see the world’s largest volcanic bomb, measuring some 4m x 5m– a great photo opportunity. The final destination is to Volcán del Cuervo (volcano of the raven). Accessed via a short walk from the drop off point, this visit allows the group right into the heart of a huge crater. Dramatic lava formations can be seen and the crater is also home to rare nesting birds, Berbery Falcons, which can be seen on some occasions. The total walk covers around 6km and is relatively easy. However walking shoes or trainers are recommended as in some places the terrain is uneven.

Highlights
  • See three volcanoes on a guided hike in Lanzarote’s Volcanes Natural Park
  • Walk with a guide to learn about the volcanic terrain without getting lost
  • Climb La Rilla, circle Montana Colorada, and enter Volcan del Cuervo
  • Small-group tour limited to eight, plus hotel transfers included
What to Expect
View the lunar-like terrain and learn how volcanic eruptions in the 1700s and 1800s gave Lanzarote 32 new volcanoes—many situated in the park. Travel to your first crater, La Rilla, and ascend by foot. Absorb the views from the rim and hear about the crater’s formation and wildlife as you refuel with refreshments. Continue by 4-wheel drive to the red-hued Montana Colorada cone. Hike around the base and inspect various geological features, including the world’s biggest “volcanic bomb,” a gigantic rock blown from the volcano. Finally, drive to Volcan del Cuervo and enter its crater. Admire the lava formations and watch for rare Barbary falcons here before your tour concludes at your hotel.

Could be the best day out on Lanzarote. The guide turned up bang on time and was a very pleasant person. A very informative trip with just enough walking. A nice picnic stop at lunch time. 10 out of 10 the day couldn't be faulted.
