    The restaurant El Diablo is another of Manriques' designs. There are plenty of tables for a panoramic view across the barren landscape.

    Camel ride

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Camel rides in the park are very popular. You can join in a camel train for a unique look at the park.
    Personally I found it a bit too crowded as they operate quite a few camel trains.

    The big 20 minutes Timanfaya caravan

    by jantichm Written Dec 26, 2006

    You could be felt tempt to join it if you had never ridden a camel. But it's nothing amazing. You will join to a 40 or 50 people group for a short 20 minutes trip.

    Fun Alternatives: Contact with the Park staff. It's possible to walk around the park if you book in advance.
