Timanfaya National Park - Lanzarote

You would be forgiven for thinking you’ve landed on another planet when you visit here. Located in the southwest of Lanzarote, the Timanfaya National Park has been declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO for several rare plant species growing there. Back in the 1700s more than 100 volcanoes erupted on the island, leaving this desolate landscape. NASA took note of the park and used it for training astronauts before the Apollo 17 expedition to the moon.
