Description of this tour

A unique tour to see volcanoes, craters, lava flows, seas of lava and volcanic ash. Amazing landscapes where you can see the most varied shapes and colors and contemplate the different stages of the formation of life. The excursion takes place on the edge of the Timanfaya National Park. Easy hike.

An overwhelming landscape, in which fire, ash and rock mergeTour the Los Volcanes Natural Park with the help of a local hiking expert.

Did you know that Los Volcanes Natural Park is a protected area that represents the volcanism of Lanzarote? This natural park has its surface covered by lava that comes from eruptions dated between 1730-1736; and in 1824.

You can enjoy trekking between volcanoes with just you and your group, up to 8 people. It is an exclusive hike, with the guide at your disposal, to chat in a relaxed way about the hidden treasures of Lanzarote.

The route runs inside the Los Volcanes Natural Park, to the east. The map indicates the specific areas where stops are made and explanations of points of interest given. Some of the characteristic points of the route are the volcano of La Rilla, the volcano of Señalo and the caldera of Santa Catalina.

It will be 7 kilometres and 3 hours of walking on a circular route through this natural park.

Learning volcanic science

The magnificent conservation of the landscape, thanks to the arid climate of Lanzarote, will leave you stunned. Get ready to travel back 25 million years to the Oligocene. On the seabed, a volcanic edifice was emerging, the island of Lanzarote, which when surfacing from of the sea emitted magma and lava began to pile up.  This trip will take you from the birth of the Canary Islands to the present day. You will learn about the internal forces of our planet and how Lanzarote and the Canary Islands were at the beginning. A whole class of volcanic science. 

Lunar landscape

Unique views of a volcanic landscape with strange formations due to the solidification of lava. Sharpen the view and find these singular formations: we will cross the lava flows, we will ascend to the volcanic cones, we will pass by the volcanic tubes and discover lava lake formations, craters, tunnels, hornitos and much more. 

In search of vegetation

Vegetation is scarce, and is only present in areas with older lava solidification. On the lava, we will find a timid resurgence of life: fungi, lichen, majorera asparagus and purpurario gongarillo. 

The surviving fauna. The Natural Park of Los Volcanes has been declared a Special Protection Area for Birds (ZEPA). A zone of special protection for birds (ZEPA) is a category of protected areas listed by the member states of the European Union as natural areas of unique relevance for the conservation of birds threatened with extinction. Despite the extreme conditions of aridity, lack of vegetation and water, 200 species inhabit this park (50% vertebrates), 24 of them protected. Reptiles and birds stand out.
