Many say that Lanzarote is the most fascinating of the Canary Islands, and with winter temperatures which rarely fall below 20C, it makes the perfect winter walking destination.

Guided Walking Holidays Lanzarote

Discover a volcanic wonderland with a difference on an island of natural richness and wildlife found nowhere else in the world with Ramblers Walking Holidays. 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 through 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?

You might like to extend your holiday by combining Lanzarote with our one week in Tenerife and discover Lanzarote and Tenerife together.

This departure: Grade 4 and 6

  1. Day 1

    Arrive Lanzarote Airport from London Gatwick or Manchester and then transfer by road to Arrecife and our hotel.

  2. Day 2 to 7

    During our time on Lanzarote we will be spending our time exploring the island through a variety of walks. There will also be a free day. Some highlight walks that we aim to complete are as follows:

    Uga to Puerto del Carmen - Grade 4 - 13.3k / 8.3 miles    170m asc, 440m desc / Grade 6 - 17k / 11.8 miles 470m asc, 740m desc
    A good starter linear walk to stretch your legs on good tracks/paths, which takes in the grape pits of the La Geria district and continues through flatter residential land to the barranco of Quiquere, down to the coast and along the sea path to reach the resort of Puerto Del Carmen and refreshments. Both groups start out from the village of Uga but the Grade 6 walk involves two additional hills to climb which afford magnificent views.

    Timanfaya & El Golfo - Grade 4 - 8k / 5 miles 2.45 hrs 120m asc / Grade 6 - 12k / 7.5 miles 3.5 hrs  180m asc
    Both groups start with a joint visit to the Timanfaya Visitor Centre which we believe is an essential excursion to get an understanding of the volcanic formation of the island. The visit is then followed by two circular coastal walks on lava paths, including a beach stop, a visit to the Green Lagoon and on the return journey a photo stop opportunity at the sea caves of Los Hervideros.

    Maguez Circular - Grade 4 - 14k / 9 miles 400m asc/desc 4 hrs / Grade 6 - 16k / 10 miles 500m asc/desc 4.5 hrs
    A circular walk starting from Community Centre at the whitewashed village of Maguez . The two groups walk largely independently for most of the day. The lower grade walk is less demanding in terms of distance and ascent but both groups are rewarded with magnificent views of the North of Lanzarote and the Island of Graciosa. The 6 grade route visits along the side of a volcano and then passes through the picturesque village of Ye before continuing on high cliff paths with spectacular views of the nearby island of La Graciosca and returning to Maguez.
    These are both lovely walks with amazing views which many clients enjoy as a real highlight of the week.

    Femes to Puerto Calero - Grade 4 - 14k / 9 miles 250asc/450 desc 4 hrs / Grade 6 - 18k / 11miles 520 asc, 800 desc 6.5 hrs
    A linear walk starting in the high mountains of the south which are usually visible from Arrecife, this area offers two fine rough ridge walks of varying difficulty, then a quiet and tranquil valley, where rare birds have been seen, followed by a secluded lava beach which is an ideal location for a swim. Then it follows the coast path north with fine views. The path snakes through to the unspoiled resort of Playa Quemada where a few nice bars/restaurants are available. From there it continues on the coast path to Puerto Calero where it is possible to spend some time after the walk.

    Haria to Teguise - Grade 4 - 14k / 9 miles 400m asc/1220 ft, 4 hrs / Grade 6 - 16k / 10miles,  550m/1750ft asc 4.5 hrs
    Two linear walks with varying distance and ascent which basically follow old trading paths from Haria, the Valley of a Thousand Palm Trees to the ancient capital of Teguise. Both walks are on ancient and rough tracks, ascending to a high plateau and the church of Ermita de las Nieves. This walk affords both groups spectacular views inland and to the coast. There is also time for a look around tranquil Teguise. The ascent at grade 4 is all at the beginning of the walk and up to the first break, after which it is easy walking.

    There will also be a free day generally on day five your leaders will let you know about options available to you on Wednesday evening.  Note: This free day is the best opportunity for shopping as majority of shops are closed Saturday evening and Sunday.
