It’s no overstatement to say the Timanfaya National Park is one of the reasons thrill seekers and nature lovers visit Lanzarote. This protected area is an unmatchable spot, yielding the reason why Lanzarote has often been spoken of in relation to its lunar-like landscape. The otherworldly dash of Timanfaya is enhanced by the fact subsoil temperatures range from 400 to 600ºC, a feature substantiated by the demonstrative geysers improvised in this park.

The park can be explored by foot (guided tours for groups of 7 people at most), in which case two routes are available: the Tremesana or the Litoral route. Other alternatives of searching out Timanfaya refer to a bus tour (La Ruta de los Volcanos) and to camel riding tour, in which case the highlights of the park are to be mandatory ticked off.

Visitors coming to Timanfaya in due time are highly likely, if they want, to enjoy the Canarian cuisine specialties cooked at the famed El Diablo, a restaurant designed by Cesar Manrique. The nowadays park is the result of the eruptions which took place in the early 18th and in the early 19th centuries.
