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.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Lanzarote Airport to the hotel is approximately 20 minutes, depending on weather and traffic.

Walking programme
Four guided walks are included in the programme. Your walking guide will advise you in resort of the daily programme. The walking programme is graded as Easy and you can expect to walk between 7 – 8 km per day, with some ascents/descents, rough underfoot terrain and high altitudes involved. Below are the distances for each walk, however please bear in mind these are approximate and subject to change due to local conditions.

In The Heart of the Volcanoes
Length – 8km
Ascent – 100m

Los Helechos,La Corona /Haria
Length – 7km
Ascent – 200m

Los Ajaches
Length – 7km

La Graciosa
Length – 8km
Ascent – 100m

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.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €20.00 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.

Choose an overseas holiday with confidence.  All holidays include flights and transfers in resort and are fully ATOL protected.
