The National Park of Timanfaya is the clearest exponent of the volcanic origins of the island. Its reds, ocres and blacks form a lunar landscape that will not leave visitors indifferent.

The volcanic eruptions produced in 1730 (which lasted six years) and those in 1824 created new craters, they entombed whole villages and buried the most fertile terrain on the island.

Following the road towards the park, one arrives at the Islote de Hilario, where one can see the tourist attraction of the artificial geysers, provoked by pouring cold water into a magma chamber that is located at a depth of three kilometres. In El Islote, one finds the restaurant, El Diablo, famously created by the international artist, Cesar Manrique, where one can taste typical Canarian food cooked on a natural oven.

Amongst the options for the tourist, one can choose between visiting the park on camel-back; covering a 14 kilometre bus tour, during which one reaches some of the most famous places in the park and can listen to the narration by the priest of Yaiza about the volcanic eruptions; or taking on foot one of the two guided routes - the Tremesana route or the Litoral route. These last are for groups of up to a maximum of 7, and have to be previously arranged either by telephone or by visiting the administration offices (Address: C/ Laguneta, 64. Telephone: 928 84 02 38/ 928 84 23 40).
