Welcome to Timanfaya National Park

Timanfaya National Park

Timanfaya National Park is unique because it is the only national park in the world to have been developed by local residents. Also unique is what the park offers, which includes a volcanic field filled with a variety of geological and geothermic phenomena. In the restaurant visitors can end their guided tour of these wonders by enjoying a meal cooked on geothermal heat emanating from the steam vents and geysers exuding from the lava. The park also features 180 different plant species on its stark landscape.
