Based on previous comments, drove up to the park and arrived at 0920 expecting a wait to get in but were allowed straight into the park and on parking at the top, were directed straight onto a bus and at 0930 were on our way. Awesome views and photo opportunities and upon return watched the geyser and fire demonstrations. Beginning... More

Amazing experience to live, visiting one of the most strangest place on heart. Many volcans to see, ancient lava stone flow everywhere. The visit consist of a guided tour with bus (cars are not allowed to go there) lasting almost 30 minutes. The long line before the visit and the strong wind, especially in the morning, is well compensated by... More

Send me to the moon - you have landed - what a fabulous National Park Dr Spock -Captain Kirk considering the volcano erupted for 6 years 1730 - 1736 the lava fields are quite breath taking the colours - the massive divots - the rocks and the lichen now growing. The heat still burning underground - a truly great 9... More

I found this visit very interesting seeing the desolation around the lava fields. Not something you would want to perhaps do on a regular basis but definitely with 1 visit. The food when being cooked is mouthwatering although we didn't partake seem to recall wasn't overly expensive. Overall a good half day out but would suggest going early as was... More

Spectacular volcanic National Park, which can only be visited on the coach tour or on one of two guided hikes. It is ESSENTIAL to get there EARLY - 9.00-9.30 for the tour. Otherwise you will end up in a long queue of cars from the main road entrance to the visitor centre. A combined ticket is possible, at reduced rate,... More

Went for a week in Lanzarote in Nov 2016 with my mum and spent s lot of time at cultural landmarks- the volcanoes and the drive through this park are fantastic. The coach trip is brilliant all the drivers are so informed and how they travel on those tiny narrow roads I'll never know... don't look down! Make sure you... More

Well worth a visit to see the devastation that a volcano can create. Gets extremely busy and there is limited parking so go as soon as the park opens to get the best chance of an easy visit. Later on the queues can be very long and the top visitor centre crowded. You pay at the bottom and then drive... More

Very good national park. A bit confusing when you arrive, where to que etc.. Cafe seemed expensive, the coach journey around the lava fields and volcano takes half an hour and is very spectacular.. We arrived before 9 when it opened and were the first people there and it was pretty peaceful. When we left at 10.30 it was hideously... More

Get up early to beat the crowds. Aim at just after opening to not end up queuing both in car and to get on the buses. Amazing landscape. To earn 5 out of 5 a stop and get of the bus at one of the crates would have done it.
