Overview

Lanzarote’s awesome volcanic scenery is at its best in Timanfaya National Park. This part of the island is all brick-red cones and craters, a surreal landscape straight from a sci-fi movie set. And it’s even more dramatic at sunset, so this evening tour is a treat not to be missed.

Drive with us along the Park’s famous ‘Lunar Route’ around the Mountains of Fire, admiring spectacular views along the way.

Your destination is El Diablo, one of the world’s most extraordinary restaurants, shaped like a donut and sitting atop a volcano.

Tuck into dinner sizzled on the volcano-heated barbecue and washed down with sangria. Enjoy the sunset and the awe-inspiring views, while local musician play Canarian tunes.

And as a finale, watch as the waiters appear with El Diablo’s famous volcano cake, which erupts into showers of red-and-golden lava.

Itinerary

Volcanic Dining at Timanfaya National Park is a unique experience and one you should not miss during your stay on Lanzarote. Transportation is provided and the tour departs in the early evening from one of the designated points in Lanzarote (Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca and Puerto del Carmen).

You will travel by coach to the dramatic Timanfaya National Park with its amazing volcanic landscapes, created some 300 years ago in the eruptions of 1730 -1736. Your tour takes the “Lunar Route” affording you spectacular views of the cones and craters of the Park.

Your ultimate destination isEl Diablo, the Park’s restaurant, located on top of the Islote de Hilario volcano. Designed by Lanzarote’s acclaimed architect, Cesar Manrique, its floor-to-ceiling windows offer eye-popping panoramas. Food for the guests is actually cooked on a BBQ using the heat from the volcanic vent.

As you enjoy the BBQ and look at the sunset, local musicians will play Canarian tunes to entertain you. At the end of the meal El Diablo’s famous “volcano cake” will be paraded through the restaurant. This is a cake with a difference, as it actually erupts in showers of ‘lava’!

At the end of a memorable evening you will return to the original departure point.
