Lanzarote Organised Trips

Highlights Of Lanzarote In A Day

Immerse yourself in the dramatic scenery of Lanzarote on a full-day adventure packed with unmissable sights. On the south coast, lava flows have created unique features, from the craggy shore and sea caves of Los Hervideros to the shallow Janubio lagoon with its salt flats. You’ll stop at El Golfo, a splash of dazzling green water in a collapsed volcanic cone, before heading to the Fire Mountains in Timanfaya National Park. In this blasted landscape – site of the island’s most recent eruptions – you’ll be able to appreciate the daunting power and stark beauty of these forces of nature. After lunch in Yaiza, one of Lanzarote’s prettiest villages, you’ll discover the plus side to all this geological restlessness in La Geria. This wine-making area in the shadow of Timanfaya is smothered in tiny black volcanic pebbles that retain precious moisture, and the vineyards that have been established here are like nowhere else. You’ll visit one of the wineries for a tasting, before heading north via sleepy towns and villages to Jameos del Agua, a volcanic cave complete with an underground lake.

Hike Through Los Volcanes Natural Park

On the fringes of Timanfaya National Park, Los Volcanes is a startling landscape of lava fields created by the eruptions in the 1730s and 1824, and a fascinating place for a guided hike. As you walk among the volcanoes, craters and calderas, their slopes streaked orange, crimson, yellow and purple by minerals, you’ll discover an impressive range of features formed as the lava solidified, from cinder cones and tunnels to lava pools and hornitos. It’s so bare you could be walking on the moon, but if you look closer you’ll find lichens – nearly 100 different kinds – along with reptiles and birds, especially seabirds.

North Lanzarote Hike

Stretch your legs on a long-distance hiking trail that takes you through some of northern Lanzarote’s most impressive scenery. The 10-kilometre walk starts at the Volcan de La Corona, a natural monument whose imposing silhouette has dominated the skyline for around 3,000 years. You’ll circle the volcano, walking through the twisted sea of petrified lava known as the Malpaís de la Corona, taking in its strange beauty. From here, you’ll continue to the top of the Famara Cliffs, all that’s left of an ancient caldera and one of the most dramatic features of the island’s northern coast. You’ll follow the path for a few kilometres, enjoying the stunning sea views, before descending through a palm-tree-dotted ravine to the charming inland hamlet of Maguez not far from Haría.

The Dunes of Fuerteventura

Corralejo natural park, with its soaring dunes, is arguably Fuerteventura’s best-known attraction and the perfect side trip from Lanzarote. You’ll board the ferry at Playa Blanca for the 35-minute cruise to Corralejo, keeping an eye out for flying fish, dolphins or maybe even whales on the way. Once on Fuerteventura, you’ll head to El Cotillo, a picturesque fishing village where you can check out the beach, walk along the promenade or relax with a drink in one of its little cafés. From here you’ll make for Corralejo, another former fishing village that’s now a popular resort, where you can go shopping, stroll through its streets or eat the freshest of fish in one of its inviting restaurants. After that comes the natural park itself, where you can walk on the dunes and try to take the perfect photo of them. There’ll be time to swim and sunbathe on the kilometre-long beach adjoining the park, undoubtedly one of the best in the Canary Islands, before your return to Lanzarote.
