This fascinating 3km trail in the south-west of the Timanfaya NP must be walked as part of a guided tour, so it is a wonderful condensed lesson in vulcanology.
Brilliant colours. A huge variety of landscapes and formations – including an enormous lava tube.
Some vestiges of traditional farming amid the devastation – some fig trees in their retaining walls.
The groups are small and too few, so that you need to book ages ahead to get a place – Walkopedia left it too late when coming here, to our chagrin. Go to https://www.reservasparquesnacionales.es/real/ParquesNac/usu/html/listado-actividades-oapn.aspx?ii=6ENG&cen=6, select the language you want to be guided in, start the booking process – and prepare for disappointment!
Come prepared, including carrying enough water.
