Timanfaya Nationalpark, Tinajo

#1 of 817 in Nature in Spain
Explore the volcanic landscapes of Timanfaya Nationalpark, a mountainous area that has been frozen in time since the greatest recorded eruptions took place nearly 300 years ago. This national park forms the core area of a protected biosphere reserve. Access to the park is strictly regulated to guard its delicate wildlife, with only a few footpaths and a short rustic route you can explore by camel. The admission fee includes a bus tour around the interior of the park, with a narrated history of the area in several languages. Located just outside the northern limits of the park is an informative visitor center, with permanent displays and audio-visual presentations explaining the origins of the island and the volcanic activity that formed the park’s unusual scenery.

  • astonishing! Of course you have to love the extreme landscapes to appreciate this park of volcanoes ... still hot. Don't hesitate to have lunch at the "El Diablo" restaurant, located in the hottest place: it's good (grills in the heat of the volcano) and the prices are very reasonable. A must-see bus tour to navigate the forbidden road... we are not alone, but there is no other choice!

  • Amazing scenery. Beautiful piece of nature. Highly recommend a visit when in town. The queue for private cars can take up to nearly 2 hours waiting to enter in the peak of the summer. But if you get a taxi from town you don't have to queue - worth the taxi fare
  • A must do visit. Awesome place. The restaurant had good prices also. You buy tickets at the little hut at the bottom.. we went at 3.30 and got straight on a coach. The coach drive had some jaw dropping moments. I couldn't drive a car around those roads let alone a coach.
