Timanfaya National Park (Fire Mountain), Lanzarote.

I visited Lanzarote in 2006 with my wife, daughter, friends and their 2 daughters. We stayed in a villa owned by the friends which is in Puerto Del Carmen. One of the trips we went on was Timanfaya National Park (Fire Mountain), Lanzarote. It's a fascinating place that was created between 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanoes covering over 50KM2 rose up to devastate this part of the island and several villages. The last eruptions were in 1842 but due to very little rain fall and lack of erosion the area looks much as it did just after the eruptions.
