Day 1: Arrive in Lanzarote
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, cafés, 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 cafés 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 and 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.
Day 3: Kayak Around Playa Blanca & Papagayo Beaches
The clear waters and steep cliffs of the Natural Monument of Los Ajaches make today's adventure unforgettable. Meet at the beach of Las Coloradas, then head out to tour the corners, cliffs, and caves to discover pristine beaches and secluded swimming spots. Finish today's tour with a stop at Lanzarote's most popular beach—Papagayo Beach.
Day 4: Free Day
Today is a free day to enjoy everything the island has to offer. Take a surfing class at Famara beach, go deep sea fishing, or soak in the sunshine on the beach.
Day 5: La Corona & the Famara Cliffs
The imposing La Corona volcano sits on the uplands of the Famara Cliffs, and the peak offers an incredible view over the Chinijo Archipelago and the northeast coast. Your hike begins in the small village of Ye, then ascends toward La Corona, and continues along the edge of the cliffs before heading back to Ye.
There's an option to make the hike a bit longer by following the cliffs farther and heading down into the village of Haria, located in the Valley of 100 Palm Trees.
Day 6: Discover Cesar Manrique
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 visit 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 show 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. It's a curious place where time seems to stop, and people live to the rhythm of the tides. Take a ferry from Lanzarote in the morning and see for yourself why so many travelers and locals fall in 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.
In the afternoon, cycle the length of the north shore and enjoy the views of the open ocean.
Day 8: Depart
Today is your last day in Lanzarote. Transfer to the airport, then connect to your flight home. If you choose to stay longer and extend your day, your guides will be happy to offer suggestions and help you organize your next adventure. Safe travels!
