- We visit: Camel park at Timanfaya national park
Description of this tour
The camel ride is one of the most popular activities on the island and doing it in an environment as spectacular as that of the Timanfaya National Park becomes an experience.
The camel ride lasts about 25 minutes and runs along a path defined in the lunar landscape of Timanfaya. You will see that camels, actually dromedaries, are very well cared for, have a life expectancy of about 45 years and have been domesticated for thousands of years. They can go two weeks without drinking, the hump is actually a fat reserve that they do not have at birth and they are very strong, being able to lift up to 500 kilos.
In addition to the walk, near the beginning of the route there is a rest area with a museum dedicated to camels and an information point.
This activity is especially fun for children and families.
Book as soon as possible to guarantee availability, especially on bridges and holidays. You can book until the day before (Lanzarote time) as long as there are places left.
What a fantastically fun way of exploring the volcanic terrain of Lanzarote – with a ride on a camel!
The Timanfaya National Park is a must-see attraction for visitors to this beautiful island and taking a trip around some of the landscape on board a dromedary is a great way to travel.
You will be helped into a wooden seat which is attached to the camel and guided around by camelleros (handlers) who will make sure passengers are equally balanced by small sandbags. Hold on tight as the camel stands and away you go.
The camel station includes a café, toilets and a small museum displaying geological specimens collected in the park and some information about the dromedaries.
Over 25 minutes we'll make a tour on camelback over an authorised trail. You will feel the gentle rocking which characterises the trot of these friendly animals, perfectly adapted as they are to the geographical and climatic conditions of this area of Lanzarote.
After the tour, you will be driven back to your hotel.
