21 May Discovering Lanzarote: Island Tours
Although our luxury villas in Lanzarote were designed with comfort and relaxation in mind, we understand that you may want to venture out to see more of the island. A perfect way to spend your vacation on Lanzarote is getting to know the island with interesting and entertaining guided tours.
Here are some of the available tours and highlights that we recommend:
1. North Tour – From the Mirador de Las Nieves, look out over the Chinijo Islands of La Graciosa, Montaña Clara and Alegranza. Enjoy a delicious lunch in a small fishing village. In the Jameos del Agua, and La Cueva de los Verdes, the creative genius of César Manrique is everywhere. He has transformed the lava tunnel into subterranean walkways, an auditorium and La Casa de los Volcanes. Visit the César Manrique Foundation to see how he incorporated five volcanic bubbles into rooms of his home.
2. South Tour – In Timanfaya National Park, see the lava fields formed by the 18th century eruptions. In the heart of Montañas del Fuego, see geothermal experiments demonstrating the heat below the surface and walk into the oven where food is cooked with this natural heat. A twenty minute camel ride around the base of Fire Mountain is great fun for all ages. See the Green Lagoon at ‘El Golfo’. At Janubio, learn of the importance of salt extraction in Lanzarote’s history. Eat lunch in a picturesque village, followed by wine tasting and a journey through the vineyards of “La Geria.”
3. Atlantic Adventure – From Playa Blanca harbor, board the glass- bottomed catamaran Princesa Ico. Sailing along the coastline, anchor off the spectacular beaches of Papagayo. Relax, sunbathe, and enjoy swimming and snorkelling. Watersports on the banana boat are optional. Lunch is provided with sangria and soda free from the bar aboard the boat. Highly recomended trip for families with children.
4. Lanzarote Visión – For a self-guided tour, this tourist coach service is designed to allow everyone to experience Lanzarote in their own, unique way. Whether it is your first visit to the island or you come every year, the Lanzarote Visión is a fast and easy way to discover all the special places on the island. Lanzarote Visión has 21 different pick-up and drop-off points. You can visit art centers, museums, monuments, and other places of interest. Stay in each place as long as you like and take the next bus to continue your tour or return to your original starting point. One ticket allows you to hop on and off the Lanzarote Visión bus as many times as you wish. A guide is available on the bus to provide more information about places of interest at each stop.
