Walking up this volcano is a good value experience as far as effort is required. It’s extinct, so perfectly safe, but is still one of the island’s tallest peaks so at the top, at 609 metres, you get a good view of the volcanic scars all over Lanzarote’s landscape before heading down into the crater to have a look at what’s inside a volcano.

This volcano was responsible for the look of much of this island, including the formation of the vast lava tunnels that run beneath it and all the way out into the ocean – at seven kilometres it’s the world's longest.

Most people start walking beside the Ye village church, and find it a relatively comfortable ramble.
