- How to choose my Timanfaya tour?
The Timanfaya excursions differ due to the other sites you’ll visit, along with the park. Also, you should check if it offers to option of riding a camel on the route since, even though it’s optional, not all tours stop to do this activity. In any case, look for the other points of interest, in addition to Timanfaya, that you want to visit on your excursion, these may include Jameos del Agua, Cueva de los Verdes, Charco de los Clicos, La Geria, Los Hervideros or Las Salinas.
- Should I do an organized excursion to Timanfaya or go on my own?
The great advantage over self-guided excursions is that in the organized ones you don’t have to wait in the long queues, which can last for up to 3 hours, to enter the park or to take the bus to do the “volcano route”. In addition, the organized visits offer an official guide who will give you information throughout the park route and in Lanzarote. You’ll only have to worry about being at the meeting point at the agreed time. And if you also intend to visit other places such as the Jameos del Agua or the Cueva de los Verdes, you won’t have to queue at the entrance to visit these tourist centers either.
- How long does the visit to Timanfaya last?
The time from when we enter the National Park to when we leave is approximately 1.5 hours, and this includes the time to see the experiments, do the Volcano Route, enjoy the Islote de Hilario views and visit The Devil’s Restaurant. If you do the tour with the camel ride, you should add another 30-50 minutes to the itinerary.
