About this holiday
The northernmost of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote is the most surprising island of the archipelago with some truly breathtaking landscapes. It’s a UNESCO Biosphere reserve and over 40% of it is protected and its amazing volcanic landscapes contain some weird and wonderful plants endemic to the island, and some truly stunning beaches. Add to this a superb climate where the temperature rarely falls below 20°C, makes Lanzarote a great choice for an activity based holiday in the warmth and sunshine.
Our programme of activities include:
Hike into the heart of the volcanoes
This hike was takes us right into the heart of the island’s volcanic landscapes, where we will witness some incredible landscapes made up of craters, volcanic tubes and channels, and vast seas of lava. The walk ends with a climb up Montaña de Guardilama and a visit to a local vineyard.
The volcano of La Corona sits on the uplands of the Famara cliffs from where we can admire glorious views over the Chinijo archipelago on one side and Lanzarote’s stunning north-east coast on the other. The hike begins in the small hamlet of Ye and ascends towards La Corona, walking along a ridge through the mountains.
Kayak around Playa Blanca and the beaches of Papagayo
The pristine, clear waters of Papagayo beaches and cliffs of the Natural Monument of Los Ajaces, serve as the landscape for an unforgettable trip. After departing from Los Coloradas beach we will marvel at the cliffs, caves and unspoiled beaches which are located on this beautiful island. We will finish the tour with a stop at the most popular beach in Lanzarote: Papagayo beach.
