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 with over 40% of it 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 some winter walking in the Canarian warmth and sunshine.
Our programme of walks include:
In the heart of the volcanoes
This 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, ending in Haria in the beautiful Valley of a Thousand Palm Trees.
Today we walk in the heart of the Ajaches, an ancient range of volcanoes from where Lanzarote initially emerged. We begin in the small hamlet of Femes with a visit to a local cheese factory, before we take a beautiful descent to the Pico Redondo. We continue to the coast through amazing arid canyons finally arriving at the beautiful beaches of Papagayo.
Gorgeous La Graciosa is known as the Canary Island that time forgot. We take a 30 minute cruise to this unique island where we will walk across dunes, coastal tracks and idyllic beaches. There will also be the opportunity to snorkel in the acquamarine waters (snorkeling gear supplied).
