There is a funicular (ski lift) kind of thing that will take you, for 50 euros, higher up, but I opted to hike down to the lower craters. It is challenging going down (be prepared for dirt in your trainers) but true murder coming back...More
Have hiked St. Helen’s in the US and Mt.Teide including its ‘nostrils’.
