There are two main walks: round the edge of the crater and around the inside of the caldera. The first walk takes about 1hr 30, and is relatively easy. You get great views over the surrounding country. The second, takes about an hour. You descend very steeply into the crater, then walk through the deserted fields and plantations. It is... More

We drove to the top of the viewpoint to admire the Caldera and also the 360 degree view of the island. Well provided with a loo, small visitor centre and then lower down on the spiral, a cafe. We then parked up near the golf course to walk the perimeter. Unfortunately attempts to improve the walking surface with a gravel... More

It was a great experience visiting this crater. It took us like 1.5 hours to go to the bottom and climb back up - taking some pictures and doing a small picnic. Next to the entrance, there is a nice winery where people can taste and buy local wines, tasting from 2 euros, bottle from 12. The only thing I... More

Go by bus, much cheaper than an organised tour. Spectacular ride up to the crater. If wearing sood walking shoes, you can walk around the circumference (3½ km) or, if fit, follow the path down to the bottom.

I loved the experience; all the views were breathtaking. I took a bus from las palmas which took me there quite quickly. The buses go once in an hour.

Not only the view from the Bandama peak at 600 m altitude is great - either you see the coast and Las Palmas, or you see the caldera of the volcano and the surrounding villages and vineyards. No entry fee! you have a panoramic view of 360º - but do not go if there is fog or it is raining.

We combined this attraction with a visit to the Botanical Garden and had a pleasant coffee on the terrace looking at the amazing views. Probably not enough interest to visit by itself unless you are an energetic hiker.

We went here on the advice of a German couple we got chatting to while having a cup of tea ( being German they were drinking beer! ) The view from the top was breathtaking We really enjoyed walking around the volcano It take about an hour It is steep in places but never scary
