Las Montañas del Fuego (The Fire Mountains)

The Montaņas del Fuego (Fire Mountains) or Timanfaya form part of a wide area affected by the volcanic eruptions that struck Lanzarote between 1730-1736 and later, in 1824. This lengthy eruptive process - one of the most relevant and spectacular in the Earth's volcanic history - drastically altered the island's morphology, leaving a quarter of it almost completely buried under a thick layer of lava and ash.

What there is to see

All along Timanfaya, there are what vulcanologists call "geothermic anomalies": unusual temperatures in the ground emanating from the subsoil.

Within the Parque Nacional there is a route of some 14 kilometres open to visitors, known as "La Ruta de los Volcanes" (The Volcano Trail)

The camel rides on the volcano are, without doubt, one of the most classic aspects of Lanzarote and combine the exoticism of the transport with the spectacular nature of the surroundings.
