What to expect

This is probably the best experience with volcanoes, since it offers the excitement of climbing on foot and touring around three spectacular volcanoes and being as close as possible to the protected National Park of Timanfaya by foot. The first stage of the excursion is the edge of the La Rilla crater, one of the most impressive examples of volcanic activity in Lanzarote. The group will climb to the edge of the crater where, during a break for a snack, the guide will explain the creation of this beautiful volcano and the life that inhabits it.

The second part of the excursion will take place at the base of Montaña Colorada, one of the last volcanoes that erupted during the activity of 1730 – 1736. The spectacular ash cone shines with a beautiful red color that is especially intense for a volcano of this type. This comfortable walk will take the group by the base of the volcano and will make stops along the way, in which the guide will explain the points of geological or natural interest. The walking tour also offers the group the opportunity to see the largest volcanic bomb in the world, with 4m x 5m, a great opportunity to take photos.

The final destination is the Cuervo Volcano. You can access it in a short walk from the point of arrival and this visit allows the group to reach the heart of a huge crater. Spectacular lava formations can be seen and the crater is also home to rare nesting birds, the Berbery hawks, which can be seen on some occasions. The total duration of the route covers approximately 6 km and is relatively easy. However, it is recommended to wear sneakers or walking shoes, since in some places the terrain is irregular.
