What a fantastically fun way of exploring the volcanic terrain of Lanzarote – with a ride on a camel!

The Timanfaya National Park  is a must-see attraction for visitors to this beautiful island and taking a trip around some of the landscape on board a dromedary is a great way to travel.

You will be helped into a wooden seat which is attached to the camel and guided around by camelleros (handlers) who will make sure passengers are equally balanced by small sandbags. Hold on tight as the camel stands and away you go.

The camel station includes a café, toilets and a small museum (Museo de Rocas) displaying geological specimens collected in the park and some information about the dromedaries.
