Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Lanzarote!

Charco San Gines, Arrecife
Charco San Gines, Arrecife

Welcome to Lanzarote! The island is one of the seven main Canary Islands, a chain of Spanish islands off the Northwest coast of Africa. Meet your tour representative at the airport, then transfer to your hotel in Arrecife

You'll have some free time in the afternoon to explore. Explore the neighborhood and check out the many restaurants, cafes, and tapas bars around your centrally-located hotel. If you're in the mood for some sun, grab a towel and head to El Reducto Beach, across the street from the cafes and restaurants. 

In the evening meet your guide in the hotel to ask any questions you may have remaining about the itinerary. 

Day 2: In the Heart of the Volcanoes

Start the morning with a pickup from your hotel, then head to Parque Natural de Los Volcanes and the Timanfaya National Park for a day in the incredible desert landscapes of the volcanic parks. The island is home to over 300 volcanoes whose ancient eruptions formed the landscapes, and you'll learn all about the local geology as you traverse the landscapes. 

Explore the craters of the most recent eruptions (1730 & 1824) and cross the protected area of the natural park. Thanks to the climate the landscape of the volcanic eruptions is remarkably well-preserved. Visit volcanic tubes, lava tubes, and seas of molten lava, then end the hike with the ascent of Guardilama Mountain in the center of the La Geria Vineyard. This is the heart of Lanzarote's agricultural area, and one of the most beautiful.

Finish the day with a wine tasting and a visit to Timanfaya National Park. Please note that the entrance fee to the park (10,00€) is not included. 

Day 3: Kayak Around Playa Blanca and the Beaches of Papagayo

Your hike begins in the small village of Ye, then ascends towards La Corona and continues along the edge of the cliffs before heading back to Ye.

Cesar Manrique is a world-famous artist whose work can be found all over the world. His home island of Lanzarote is covered in his art, from roundabouts to the national park. Discover his masterpieces and the story of his life today as you visiting his main works on the island.

Start at the Cesar Manrique Foundation, one of the artist's old houses that stands on top of a lava flow. Continue to see Los Jameos del Agua, a series of volcanic caves that were decorated and furnished by the artist. Finally head to El Jardin de Cactus, Manrique's last big work. It was his most-enjoyed project, and the love and care for his art shows in every detail of the park. 

Day 7: La Graciosa Mountain Biking

Spend the day exploring the nearby island of La Graciosa, which its locals consider to be the eighth island of the Canaries.

Take a ferry from Lanzarote in the morning and see for yourself why so many travelers and locals fall love with this incredible island. 

Explore the sandy areas, coastal tracks, and idyllic beaches of the sunny island. Go snorkeling in the clear blue water to see the wide variety of marine species that call the coast home and learn about the local fishing and traditional sun-drying methods.
