Timanfaya National Park Lanzarote Volcano

Timanfaya National Park is the biggest attraction in Lanzarote and is a must-see, people from all across the world flock to marvel in the live Lanzarote volcano and see and feel the intense heat. There is so much to see and do in Timanfaya National Park and so many different ways to visit the most popular Lanzarote attraction. Be aware that if you have a hire car in peak season just getting into the Timanfaya National Park can take hours as everyone wants to see the live Lanzarote volcano so a tour is always the best option.

What are the best ways to see Timanfaya National Park?

Timanfaya National Park tour

You will hear us say this a lot but it's one of the things that people always regret if they have a hire car and head to Timanfaya National Park. In a nutshell, if you have a hire car you will be waiting hours to get into the park while all the Timanfaya tour buses pass you and get instant entrance. The reason for this is the sheer volume of people in cars seeking Timanafaya entrance tickets only. Whilst this may save you a few euros the hassle of waiting in a hot car, burning petrol to keep the airconditioning on and increasing your carbon footprint is just not worth it. With a Timanfaya National Park tour, you will have a guide in your language, be sat on a comfortable fully air-conditioned coach and get straight into Timanfaya park with now waiting around. Everything is organised for you so you can see the Lanzarote volcanoes. 

Timanfaya National Park entrance ticket prices

The last time we looked at the price to get into Timanfaya National Park was €12 for adults and €6 for children. With the Lanzarote volcanoes short south tour priced at €27 for adults and €16 for kids the difference in price is minimal for the time you will spend waiting, the hassle you will have going direct and the fact that on the short south tour you also get a guide who will inform you about all the important things you need to know about the Timanfaya park, you will get to see El Golfo, visit the Lanzarote Camels and be picked up and dropped off at or near your accommodation so doing a Timanfaya National Park tour is certainly your best option.

The camels are priced at around €12 per camel and take two people at a time.

Lanzarote Timanfaya Park facts and information

Timanfaya National parks cover a quarter of the Lanzarote island, Timanfaya was created over around 6 years of volcanic eruptions which were constant on the island between 1730 and 1736. There was a smaller eruption in 1824 also. There were around 2,000,000,000m of lava that covered Lanzarote from the 100 different volcanos.

Nobody was recorded to have died from the eruptions but a lot of the land and livestock was ruined so many emigrated to other parts of the world.

Timanfaya National Park has played a significant role in preparing for the Nasa Mars landing, so much so that the first place Nasa touched down in Lanzarote they have named Timanfaya so if you want to say you know what Mars looks like then just go to Timanfaya in Lanzarote. 

Islote de Hilario (The heart of Timanfaya Lanzarote Park)

On all of the Timanfaya National park tours, you will visit the Montanas del Fuego (Fire Mountains) The centre at Islote de Hilario will show you the live volcano, let you see the geothermal demonstrations and take a luna route around Timanfaya National Park.
