Discover Lanzarote, guided tour on bus
Discover Lanzarote in its entirety with this magnificent tour and enjoy the incredible lunar landscape of the southern part of the island and its natural, lava-moulded sculptures.
We start our tour of Lanzarote along the volcanic coast, arriving at the picturesque fishing village of El Golfo, on the west coast of Lanzarote, to visit the Lago de Los Clicos or, as it is popularly known among Lanzarote locals, “Charco Verde”, just a 5 minute walk from the village.
This pool has been declared a Nature Reserve and owes its emerald green colour to the presence of micro-organisms and algae in the water, as well as the sulphur it contains. It is located inside the crater of an ancient volcano that collapsed over time due to erosion. This means that the crater of the volcano itself can be seen at the foot of the sea and offers the possibility of enjoying this peculiar volcanic landscape on the seashore, creating a marvellous contrast between the colour of the lake and the black sand of the beach.
We continue our route into the Fire Mountains, where you have the opportunity of taking a camel ride (optional, not included in the price).
Timanfaya National Park
We continue our trip through Lanzarote along the road that takes us between volcanoes and craters to visit the Timanfaya National Park, to enjoy the geothermal demonstrations before going on the “Volcano Route”, where you can admire the landscape that is like a trip to another planet.
This park extends over an area of approximately 51 km2 and covers a large part of the southwest of Lanzarote. This unique volcanic landscape was formed during the volcanic eruptions that occurred between 1730-1736 and those of 1824.
Timanfaya is considered the main natural wonder of Lanzarote and offers an impressive display of past volcanic activity and features a combination of earthy colours, solidified lava fields and peculiar rock formations. The soil in much of the park is still at a high temperature beneath its surface due to the residual heat from the volcanoes.
Because of the extreme terrain conditions, much of the park is protected and access for visitors is limited. However, there are several ways to explore and enjoy it. One of the most popular options is to take a bus tour along the Volcano Route, which you can do with us to see the most outstanding volcanic landscapes.
Your visit will continue at the famous El Diablo Restaurant, located inside the National Park. The main attraction of El Diablo is its unique grill. Instead of using charcoal or gas, the grill uses the heat generated by the volcano. A large hole was built in the ground, with metal grilles placed over it and the food placed on these. The temperature of the grille can reach 450-500ºC.
In addition to the culinary delights, the restaurant offers breathtaking views of the volcanic landscape of Timanfaya. Here you can enjoy your meal while contemplating this wonders of nature.
Lunch en route (Included in the price).
Our Lanzarote tour continues into the centre of the island.
After lunch, we drive through the La Geria area of the island, known for its wine-growing tradition and the special cultivation technique used to protect the vines. What makes La Geria so special is this cultivation technique developed by local farmers to protect the vines from the wind and lack of water.
The vines are planted in individual conical holes dug in volcanic gravel, then covered with a layer of ash and volcanic stone known as “picón”. This layer acts as an insulator, protecting the roots of the vines from dehydration and wind.
In addition, volcanic stone crescents are created around each conical hole to form small walls that further protect the vines from the wind and help retain moisture. These crescents, known as “zocos”, create a characteristic, unique landscape in La Geria.
The grapes grown here are usually native varieties, such as Malvasía, which is a white grape highly appreciated on the island. We will have the opportunity to visit one of its wineries to taste one of Lanzarote’s Designation of Origin wines and enjoy the vineyard landscape.
After the visit to the winery, we continue our tour of Lanzarote in its entirety, heading north through Teguise, the former capital of the island. From here, we drive through Los Valles and Haría for a panoramic view of the “Valley of a Thousand Palm Trees”. The lush vegetation and the beauty of the landscape make Haria one of the most picturesque destinations in Lanzarote, with its “Thousand Palm Trees” dotting the landscape; making this the greenest area in this land of volcanoes.
Visit César Manrique’s work
Our trip through Lanzarote takes in a visit to Los Jameos del Agua where you can see the exceptional work of the Lanzarote artist, César Manrique. This underground volcanic complex was designed to combine the volcanic environment with the creative vision of the artist.
Arriving at Los Jameos del Agua, you find a volcanic cave that has been transformed into an impressive underground area, with strategic lighting to highlight the natural shapes and textures of the rocks.
One of the highlights of Los Jameos del Agua is its beautiful saltwater lake known as “Jameo Chico”. This lake is home to a unique species of crab called “jameito”, endemic to Lanzarote. You can delight in the harmonious combination of architecture and nature on this visit.
