We were given directions to the volcano from our hotel and a guide that it would take two hours. We did it in an hour and forty. It's a steep climb to the summit but well worth the effort. The view was amazing from the top and there is a path the circumference of the crater. A good free trip to walk your breakfast off

A modestly stretching walk to the top is rewarded with the chance to walk around the volcanic crater and brilliant views across the island. Best to go in the morning when the temperature is a bit lower, take water and sensible shoes eg trainers. It can get very windy on top but safe if you are sensible. Don't wear flip flops like some we saw!

we had a nice peaceful walk up montana roja at about 9.30am before the sun was too hot, it took us about 30mins to walk up to the top of the crater at the top, there was afew people around but by no means busy. it was quite windy up there. we took some pics and walked right through the middle of the crater then walked back down to the bottom. took us about 1hr 30mins at a easy pace. nice way to spend a couple of hours in the morning

I went for an afternoon hike but it really was more of a stroll. In parked the car on Calle los Claveles which is just off Calle Francia where Paradise Island Aparthotel is. To be more specific from the centre of Playa Blanca (where the anchor is), go up the short hill to the first big roundabout and go across onto the dual carriageway (LZ-2) passing the petrol station on the left. At the next big roundabout turn left and at the third mini-roundabout turn right into Calle Francia and then first left into Calle los Claveles. The start of the walk is on the right about 400m down. It is a relatively steep climb but quite short. The views at the top are marvellous. You can see El Golfo, Playa Blanca, Playa Patagayo and Fuerteventura. The names of visitors "drawn" out of placing rocks are seen in the crater which can be walked around or indeed through. From start to finish it took me around 60mins from where I parked the car (See photmap). It is definitely worth leaving the sunbeds for a late afternoon "stroll".

Really hard to find the path up - like a few others have said - and for us ( mid 50s not very fit) it was a bit of a challenge getting to the top but very rewarding for the views and a sense of achievement! We also walked down into the crater just so that we could say we had! Take some water and wear shoes if possible because there is no real path and it's gravelly - some people were in flip-flops but they did seem to be suffering a bit!
