Real Life Eruptions

Timanfaya National Park


After learning about volcanoes in our topic work we had a email from Isla (Hazel) and her mum. It turns out they had visited a volcanic Island a few years ago. Thank you for sharing your experience and the below videos. 


Information from Isla


Water quickly turns to steam through a vent at the Timanfaya National Park. 
You can see the whole island is the result of volcanic action. We walked inside lava tubes, went in caves and saw heat just below the crust turn grass to flames and water to steam! 




Timanfaya National Park is a Spanish national park in the southwestern part of the island of Lanzarote, Canary Islands. It covers parts of the municipalities Tinajo and Yaiza. The area is 51.07 square kilometres (19.72 sq mi). The parkland is entirely made up of volcanic soil.
