Fire Mountains (Montañas del Fuego) Tours and Activities

Fire Mountains (Montañas del Fuego)
Located in Timanfaya National Park (Parque Nacional de Timanfaya), the Fire Mountains (Montañas del Fuego) are one of the most vivid, untamed areas of the Canary Islands. Formed in part during a series of violent 18th-century eruptions, the park’s Mars-like topography has captivated generations of visitors.

The Basics
Included in Lanzarote’s UNESCO Biosphere, the Fire Mountains are popular with hikers, nature photographers, and outdoorsy types. Shaped over more than 30 volcanic eruptions between 1730 and 1736—and currently classed as dormant—the mountains feature vibrant rock formations and dramatic peaks. In addition, they’re almost entirely devoid of life.
Check out the Ruta de los Volcanes, the geyser area, and the El Diablo statue by local artist César Manrique.

Half- and full-day tours of the Fire Mountains and Timanfaya National Park cater to travelers with various sightseeing schedules, while shore excursions are aimed at cruise passengers. Combination packages, which may include bus or camel tours, are also available.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Fire Mountains are known for their arid scenery. Take water and sun protection, and dress for the weather.
  • Children under age 7 get free admission.
  • The visitors center is accessible to wheelchairs, but many parts of the park are not.
  • Most visitors spend about 2.5 hours in the park.
  • For a panoramic view of the Fire Mountains, and local cuisine cooked using the area’s thermal heat, dine at El Diablo restaurant.
  • The visitors center offers amenities such as Wi-Fi and a gift shop.
How to Get There
The Fire Mountains are located in Timanfaya National Park in southeastern Lanzarote. Due to the fragile topography, access to the park is limited, and free parking is available on-site. Licensed tours by camel and coach are fun, convenient ways to take in the scenery; guided walks are also an option.

When to Get There
The park and visitors center are open daily. The Fire Mountains are beautiful year-round, though summer’s soaring temperatures can make the area uncomfortable for heat-sensitive travelers. To beat the crowds and bypass the worst of the heat, go in the early morning or at another time of year.

Other Southern Lanzarote Highlights
Continue your tour of southern Lanzarote with stops at other area attractions, such as the Green Lagoon (El Golfo) and the Los Hervideros cliffs. Alternatively, wander around a traditional whitewashed village (like Yaiza), or go wine tasting in La Geria.
