Lovely morning trekking Timanfaya: A great 7-ish km walk where you get to see Timanfaya eruptions. Fab volcanic landscape and a really enjoyable few hours. Not a strenuous walk, a few minutes walking up an incline that's all. Recommend wearing trekking shoes or at least sturdy trainers that you don't mind getting a bit dusty. Alejandro explained everything really well, answered any questions and sent us a message the day before with pick up information. We finished the walk a bit early so he showed us an extra place with an amazing view. Definitely recommend if you enjoy a walk and have a morning to spare on Lanzarote.

Excellent trip, great guide, route is fun and engaging! Definitely recommend doing if you want an adventure, buggies are good quality and capable of handling a lot more than you can throw at it! Highlight of our trip.

The best £50 we could’ve spent in Lanzarote! The guides were extremely friendly and happy the whole trip and made us feel so welcome and we enjoyed every second of it!

Excellent day out highly recommend! Much cheaper than local offers

Absolutely loved the experience, had a fantastic time!
