  • Holiday Duration 7 Nights

Discover a volcanic wonderland with a difference on an island of natural richness and wildlife found nowhere else in the world. Lanzarote’s striking volcanic cones and beautiful sandy beaches are well known but those in search of the pleasures that walking can bring are also well catered for on this most northerly of the Canary Islands. There are palm groves, vineyards, white-washed villages, and mountain vistas. The whole island is a UNESCO Biosphere reserve with over 40% of the island protected for its natural richness. There are plants endemic to the island, volcanic tubes, salt marshes and wild beaches.

Follow the mountain paths above Teguise down through the Valley of a Thousand Palm Trees and take a coastal walk from Ye to Famara, one of the best on the island with views over La Graciosa and the other tiny islands off the north coast. View ancient lava fields surrounded by towering volcanic cones in the Timanfaya National Park and make your way though verdant palm groves and vineyards taking in the fresh mountain air along the way.

We stay in the island’s capital, Arrecife, a good base from which to explore the rest of the island. With a wild coastline, deserted sandy beaches and welcoming rural villages, you’ll always find a place to relax and take in the views at the end of a walk and with temperatures that rarely fall below 20°C, what could be more perfect?

Holiday Highlights

  • Timanfaya National Park - volcanic landscapes and lava fields abound.
  • Sandy beaches and deserted coves.
  • Exhilarating walks from the mountains to the coast.
  • Walking on the Femes Ridge.
