I walked alone from my hotel, The Atlantic Gardens, to the top of Mt. Roja, an extinct volcano. When at the top, I walked around the rim of the crater before climbing down. Some people followed tracks right down into the crater. The climb is...More

Having read the Trip Advisor reviews this was a must see and was well worth it. I was staying at the west end of Playa Blanca so I planned my morning run around visiting Montana Roja. The paths up are pretty clear from the distance...More

Decided to take a walk up it on holiday. It looked massive from our Hotel (Lanzasur), but I managed to walk from reception to the top in 30 minutes. It's deceptively small ! A bit windy on the top as expected. People have left names...More

Great walk with wonderful views. Not too hard but leave yourself plenty of time.The path is not the best and always walk it either in the morning or evening when it is a bit cooler. Do not attempt it in the heat of the day!

To answer your question, if you are fit enough to walk to the top, the walk to the start is definitely within walking distance. The signage is not too brilliant but, in fact, it does become fairly obvious which path to... More
