Beautiful Lanzarote Beach

Join us as we head off the beaten track to discover the extraordinary and varied landscapes of Lanzarote and stunning La Graciosa, the 8th Canary Island. Grade: Easy to Medium

Island'S Stunning Coastline

Lanzarote Walking

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 being protected; 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.

In the heart of the volcanoes

This walk 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.

La Corona/Haria

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.

La Graciosa

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).

Los Ajaches

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.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the walks are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss this matter, thus making sure you appreciate the terrain that you will be walking.
You could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the route and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these walks other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide a walk with anyone not properly attired.

What to Wear
It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. Experience has shown that wearing 2 pairs of woollen socks adds to comfort.

The weather, even in summer, is unpredictable – particularly in mountainous areas. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take:

  • Walking boots with good ankle support
  • Waterproofs – jacket and trousers
  • Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery
  • Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets
  • Walking socks – several pairs
  • Lightweight fleece or jumper
  • Hat & gloves
  • Daysack/rucksack for walking
  • Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain
  • Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking
  • Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellant, etc
  • Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses – the sun’s strength is often multiplied in mountainous areas.

More to Explore
You will have 2 free days on the holiday, during which time you may wish to relax, or explore the island further. Your Tour Leader will be on hand to advise/assist you in arranging any additional trips.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.
