3 Volcanoes Guided Walking Tour from Lanzarote
The second part of the excursion is around the base of Montaña Colorada, one of the last volcanoes to erupt during the activity of 1730 – 1736. The stunning cinder cone shines a beautiful red color which is particularly intense for a volcano of this type. This easy walk takes the group around the base of the volcano making stops en route where the guide will explain points of natural or geological interest. The walk also offers the group the opportunity to see the world’s largest volcanic bomb, measuring some 4m x 5m– a great photo opportunity.
The final destination is to Volcán del Cuervo (volcano of the raven). Accessed via a short walk from the drop off point, this visit allows the group right into the heart of a huge crater. Dramatic lava formations can be seen and the crater is also home to rare nesting birds, Berbery Falcons, which can be seen on some occasions. The total walk covers around 6km and is relatively easy. However walking shoes or trainers are recommended as in some places the terrain is uneven.

We really enjoyed this tour, picked up in time from our hotel and off to Timanfaya National Park, not a long drive, and soon we were on our way to visit the first volcano. There were only 4 of us, a nice small group. We travelled in a minibus and along a bumpy section away from the main roads for the last bit before we set off walking. We soon reached the base of the first volcano with regular stops for information, then we climbed upwards but it was manageable even for anyone unused to hiking. We we able to look into the crater from the top, and take some photos before heading off to the second volcano, no climb walking on the level and worth it to see a great example of a volcano ‘bomb’. The third volcano was one where you go inside the crater, a little more tiring as the day got warmer, so bring water and make sure to wear sun screen and a hat. You need sturdy comfortable shoes/trainers with reasonable grip and not open as the volcanic shingle finds its way under your feet very easily. It’s an idea to take your own bottle of water to drink while walking, though there is water available at lunch time. We had a tasty choice of sandwiches for lunch, with a piece of fruit, which was perfectly sufficient. Our driver and guide was a geologist, who was literally a mine of information and loved to talk all things volcano related.
Despite the rather cool cloudy weather this was a brilliant walk, with two excellent leaders who were knowledgeable and friendly. Walk is about 8km with only one uphill section. Good lunch supplied.
Dress in layers and have your umbrella rain jacket if it's windy ready.
More than five stars. The weather was not good and we had hail storms and strong gusts of wind, as well as some brilliant sun shine. We were assured that this was not normal. In spite of this our guides ensured we had the tour we booked and we learned so much about volcanoes that it helps understand the genesis of Lanzarote. Good value.
