Ride on a camel in the Timanfaya National Park in Lanzarote

Tourists love going on camel rides in Lanzarote. It’s surely one of the most iconic images of tourism on the island, and it can be seen on any website, brochure or travel catalogue about this volcanic gem within the Canary archipelago.

In fact, within our different guided excursions to Timanfaya National Park, we have included the possibility of going on a camel ride. Of course, riding on their backs allows you to see these landscapes in a different way, from an elevated perspective overlooking the terrain, which transforms everything into a different place. The sensations that this activity provokes are hard to forget, both for the beauty of this territory and for the rhythmic motion of the ride.

You surely have many questions regarding the location, difficulty, price or timetable for these camel rides in Lanzarote. Well, we can give you some information: the activity takes place in Yaiza, in the southern part of the island, and it lasts for about 20 to 25 minutes. But as for how fun it is, we will direct you to the comments and opinions of travellers who have previously hired our services in order to do these activities or excursions in Lanzarote. Read what they have to say about the camel rides near the Mountains of Fire, and you’re sure to be excited about having your turn.

Although this activity takes place in the southernmost area of Lanzarote and your hotel is located far away, you don’t need to worry. Our guided excursions that include entrance to Timanfaya National Park and the opportunity to ride a camel also include hotel pick-up in Arrecife, Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise or Puerto del Carmen.

Our experience, as well as that of people who have already taken part in this activity, tells us that it’s the most fun activity to do with your family or group of friends. Also, it is unforgettable as a romantic trip with your partner. Also, if you are travelling alone you have an extraordinary opportunity to meet people, since the atmosphere during the ride is one of the most relaxed and animated.

In any form, the guided visit to Timanfaya or the bus trip along Volcano Road is the ideal complement to these camel rides. It is a unique way to appreciate the scenery, which appears to be totally hostile and yet is strangely beautiful, wild and stark, which provokes admiration and daydreams in equal parts. And of course the wealth of sensations experienced while contemplating Lanzarote’s Mountains of Fire is amplified if you glimpse it from the back of a camel, whose tranquil pace will make you feel like a true adventurer searching for new and unexplored lands.
