For your Timanfaya National Park Volcano Trek you will depart by in the morning from one of the designated points in Lanzarote (Costa Teguise and Puerto del Carmen) and travel to Timanfaya National Park where the trek begins.
The walk is about 6 km and of average difficulty. Led by an expert guide you will traverse the extraordinary lunar landscape of the Park.
The entire area is of volcanic origin. The most recent eruptions took place in the 18th century (between the years of 1730 and 1736) when more than 100 volcanoes, covering more than 50 km², rose up and devastated this part of the island (including several villages). The area is still volcanically active and high temperatures, close to 600°C, are measured at just 10 meters underground.
All the volcanic structures are well preserved because the arid climate of Lanzarote means that the growth of vegetation cover is very slow. Therefore the landscape before you is like a huge open-air museum of volcanology.
On the way, your guide will point out the fascinating features of Timanfaya –the blue-black lava fields, spectacular craters, lava tunnels, lava lakes and colorful volcanic cones – and you will also see scenes of idyllic beauty.
After the trek your coach will return you to your original departure point.
