The best volcanoes in Lanzarote

Lanzarote is much more than sun and sea. One of its main attractions is its volcanic landscape. It is known as the “thousand volcano island”, so get ready to enjoy some of the best it has to offer:

  • Caldera del Cuervo: Set in the Timanfaya National Park, there are plenty of other options to see too, but this volcano is one of the most popular due to its proximity to the road and because you can venture into its crater. The views over the vineyards from the top are very special. 
  • Montaña Blanca: This is in the middle of the island, close to San Bartolomé and halfway to Tias. Its colour is very representative, and it is one of the tallest volcanoes on Lanzarote. To get there, there are a selection of two hour hiking trails to choose from.
  • La Corona Volcano: This can be found in the town of Haría, to the north of Lanzarote, and is one of the most popular on the island. There are different routes to follow to the summit, but its surroundings are stunning, with the beautiful Jameos del Agua and the Cueva de los Verdes en route.
  • Montaña Bermeja: This is very close to Timanfaya, in the south of the island, and you will recognise it due to its reddish colour. Seeing it at sunset is a real spectacle.
  • Teneza Volcano: This is located in Tinajo and can be accessed from the town itself. From the volcano there is also access to some beautiful little bays: Tenesar and Las Malvas
