Timanfaya Camel Ride

Just south of the main entrance to the Timanfaya National Park, there are camel rides up through the park. It is a unique way to see ash fields in the park. The rides take about 30 to 40 minutes. Just long enough to enjoy the ride and see the park in a different way. Just short enough that your not bored.

The camel rides are between the park entrance and the town of Yaiza, about 2 kilometers south of the park entrance. After seeing the vastness of the park from one of the park buses and partaking in the heat demonstrations at the restaurant, the camel ride provided us with the opportunity to see the layers of ash along side one of the cones. It is amazing to see how hard the ash becomes after it settles. It is very similar to pavement.

The camel rides are another must see and must do when visiting Lanzarote.
