Route of the Volcanoes in Lanzarote
Fabulous tour to get to know one of the most emblematic spots of the island, the Timanfaya National Park.
Timanfaya: Beginning of the Lanzarote volcanoes route
We will enter the Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains), where we will make a photographic stop at the Echadero de los Camellos (with the possibility of a camel ride not included in the price).
From there we will continue through volcanic landscapes to visit the Timanfaya National Park, where we will see the geothermal demonstrations on the Islote de Hilario and we will follow the “Route of the Volcanoes” accompanied by the story of the eruptions that took place in Lanzarote in the past.
To give you a better understanding of what the guided tour consists of, the Timanfaya National Park presents a unique volcanic landscape in the world, characterised by its volcanoes, lava fields, its own flora and fauna and its incomparable natural beauty.
The park is very important because of its scenic, scientific, geological and ecological value and as a source of sustainable tourism. In fact, Timanfaya offers scientists an unparalleled opportunity to study and obtain valuable information to understand geological phenomena and aid scientific research.
We will continue the route of the volcanoes of Lanzarote towards the southern part of the island to admire “La Costa de la Lava”. A natural attraction, sculpted in the rocks by the action of the sea and the erosion of the wind. The Lava Coast offers breathtaking scenery, with steep cliffs, lava caves and black sand beaches. In addition to its natural beauty, the Lava Coast is also home to a great diversity of flora and fauna.
El Golfo Village
We will arrive at the picturesque fishing village of El Golfo, located on the southwest coast of the island of Lanzarote. Known for its traditional charm and iconic white houses, this tranquil village captivates visitors with its natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere. Here we can admire the Lago Verde de Los Clicos. This lake is characterised by the colour of its name, an intense green that contrasts with the surrounding volcanic landscape. During the visit we will explain the reason for its colour and some other interesting facts about the area.
We will continue to the pretty village of Yaiza, with its traditional Canarian architecture, beautiful whitewashed houses and gardens. Lunch en route (Included in the price).
Finally, we will visit Lanzarote’s wine-growing area par excellence: La Geria.
La Geria, ingenious and unique
La Geria is a wine-growing area with a landscape that looks like something out of another planet. Over the centuries, the locals have developed and perfected their cultivation techniques to protect the vines from the strong winds and scarcity of water in order to adapt to the extreme conditions of the volcanic environment. This technique consists of digging deep holes in the volcanic soil and protecting the vines with small semi-circular stone walls called “zocos”. It is undoubtedly worth a visit as it is a clear example of adaptation and use of this characteristic terrain.
La Geria is one of the two wine-growing areas recognised with the Protected Designation of Origin “Vinos de Lanzarote”. This guarantees the quality and authenticity of the wines produced in the region and that is why here we will find traditional wineries built in volcanic caves. Here we will stop in a typical bodega to taste one of the wonderful traditional wines of Lanzarote.
After this last visit we will finish the volcanoes route by returning to the different pick-up points.
