“Worth the walk.”
Review of Montana Cuervo

Montana Cuervo
Reviewed 29 January 2016

I have been to a few volcanic regions so this was not really out of the ordinary to me. It is interesting walking through the lava fields. I would recommend decent footwear.

Park at the free carpark and then follow the trail to the volcano, round the outside and inside. Display boards explain the details of what you can see. A very good guide to the volcanic eruption that you can see close up for yourself. This was the first volcano to erupt in 1730.
When you have completed your circuit drive north for about half a mile to the next car park and walk round Caldera Colorada - the volcano with bright red flanks. See the huge volcanic bombs and the larva flow cascading out on the northern side.

It was really cool to walk around and inside this volcano. We had lunch here (being careful to take all our rubbish out) enjoying the suntrap. We also saw some lizards.
If you are not a very adventurous walker this is the perfect destination, you can amble round it in a couple of hours.

We only discovered this attraction on reading that last October's Dr Who episode was filmed here.
It is located on the edge of Timanfaya national park and there is an area to park and then a walk across the picon on a designated path. This is a protected area and the path winds past lava flows until you reach the volcano - there are instructive panels in Spanish, German and English explaining that this was the site of the first eruption in 1730. There is a path all the way round the volcano and the extension of the volcano caused by the winds - it is 3000 meters in length. As we were finishing the full walk we noticed that a bus tour only gave time to go to the volcano and go inside - that is a shame as the views going around are amazing looking across to the main eruptions in Timanfaya across the lava flows.
The inner part of the volcano is really interesting and you have to walk down into the heart of the volcano. It is extinct but you really get the feeling of how it all developed. It is far larger inside than it appears from outside and especially from the road.
If you want to have a real Lanzarote experience we would really recommend visiting Montana Cuervo - we made it into a 2 hour visit but an hour or so would be OK.
