Walk through the amazing volcanic landscapes in the heart of the island
Isla of La Graciosa
Explore the charming Isla of La Graciosa
Join us as we head off the beaten track to discover the extraordinary and varied landscapes that Lanzarote has to offer. With beautiful canyons, jaw-dropping panoramas and the stunning La Graciosa, the 8th Canary Island, it is no surprise this island is perfect for a week of Solos walking.
Arrive in Lanzarote. Transfer to our hotel for the week where we will have our welcome meeting with our guide & a short walk to discover our surroundings. Dependant on flight arrival times
Our first 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 at the heart of Lanzarote’s agricultural area where we visit the La Geria vineyard and finish the day with a little wine-tasting and a visit to the National Park of Timanfaya (12€ payable locally)
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 starts today in the little village of Guinate and ascends towards the volcano of Los Helechos. This spectacular route then takes us along the edge of the cliffs back down towards Guinate. From here we head to the charming village of Haria within the beautiful Valley of a Thousand Palm Trees where we can end todays walk with a well earned drink.
Today take time out and take advantage of the hotel facilities and relax by the pool or on the beach. Or for the more energetic try a surfing lesson at Famara Beach or perhaps a spot of horse-riding and discover the countryside on horseback. ( Payable locally)
Today we walk in the heart of the Ajaches, an ancient range of volcanoes from where Lanzarote initially emerged. We begin the hike in the small hamlet of Femes , before we take a beautiful descent to the Pico Redondo. We continue towards the coast through amazing arid canyons then walk along ocean paths finally arriving at the village of Playa Quemada.
Why not visit and discover the famous Lanzarote artist Cesar Manrique. You can see his legacy throughout the island. The excursion includes visiting the Cesar Manrique Foundation, Los Jameos de Agua and the El Jardin de Cactus ( Payable locally €52)
Gorgeous La Graciosa is known as the Canary Island that time forgot. We take a 30 minute cruise to this unique island where todays hike takes us across dunes, coastal tracks and idyllic beaches. There will also be the opportunity to snorkel in the acquamarine waters (snorkeling gear supplied) and learn about the local fishing traditions
We say goodbye to Lanzarote and depart to the airport for our flight home

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.
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.
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.
Compulsory vaccinations: None.
