Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote
Timanfaya National Park is a charming nature reserve completely made of volcanic soil in Lanzarote. Shaped by devastating volcanic outbreaks in the 18th century, the unreal scenery of Timanfaya is out of this world. By visiting the park, you will witness remarkable craters, lava sculptures, and volcanic cones in an intense display of colours from dark red to purplish black.
Because of Lanzarote’s dry conditions, vegetation there grows slowly therefore very little has changed over the last 300 years, meaning you can appreciate the raw beauty of the landscape. In fact, the park is named after the active volcano; Timanfaya Volcano.
