    MORE INFORMATIONS

    Lanzarote is the easternmost island of the Canary Archipelago and the closest to the African coast. The gentle winds of the continent have collided for millennia with the furious volcanic activity that gave rise to the island, forming a unique earthly capsule in the whole world.

    This violence has created one of the most beautiful paradises on our planet and in turn, has generated the most unique hiking trails in the western hemisphere. The rugged terrain and the fact that the rains only touch the soil of Lanzarote for less than 20 days a year, favour the practice of hiking with ideal conditions. The island lives in an eternal spring with mild temperatures, fresh winds and a soil that has been sculpted by centuries of volcanic activity. This has created routes that compete with each other in beauty, complexity and beauty of the landscapes that surround them. In Lanzarote we can walk through the most rugged landscapes on surfaces that resemble the surface of Mars with the same ease that we can walk along the steepest cliffs and volcanic soils.

    Iconic spots have been created within the geography of the island that cannot escape our visit, but at the same time, there are paths that are kept as treasures for the more adventurous hikers. Those hikers who shy away from programmed sights and tourist routes have in Lanzarote the perfect opportunity to do the most interesting routes independently, safely and always satisfactorily.

    Lanzarote contains one of the greatest diversity of microclimates, landscapes and trails in the world. Natural treasures that can be visited all year round and are waiting to be discovered by the most intrepid explorers.

    Femés - Pico de la Aceituna - Playa del Pozo

    The mountain range of Los Ajaches, in the south of Lanzarote, was the seat of the aborigines. Today the village of Femés, with its farming and peasant tradition, is located in the upper part of the mountain range. Femés is a perfect vantage point with views to the south.  The islands of Lobos and Fuerteventura are within its visual space, as well as the Papagayo Natural Park, in the south of Lanzarote. The route starts with an ascent to the Pico de La Aceituna, whose summit is 450 metres above the sea.
    From there the path continues until it reaches the next peak: the Pico Redondo at 555 metres above sea level. After enjoying magnificent views towards the east and south coast of the island, you start a continuous descent through the ravine, with impressive views over the Playa de la Arena.  And when you reach Playa Quemada, a humble fishing enclave in the south of Lanzarote, you can enjoy a swim in the sea before returning to Arrecife.

    Ascent to the Caldera Blanca

    The ascent route to the crater of Caldera Blanca is located very close to the Timanfaya National Park. It is the crater of a volcano that resulted from a single eruption. Its perfect crater has a diameter of 1.2 kilometres and the spectacle that opens up when you reach its summit cannot be described in words. From the village of Mancha Blanca, before arriving to Timanfaya, the path starts next to the road through some badlands until you reach the base of the volcano.
    ] After a continued ascent and reaching the edge of the crater, a huge mantle of volcanic slag and recent craters extends to the south. It is Timanfaya, the Montañas de Fuego National Park. And to the north, the small rural villages of Lanzarote colour the landscape until you reach the cliffs of Famara. And after the route, there is still room for a visit to the National Park.

    The Volcanoes of Soo

    A circular route along the line of volcanoes of Soo, a small rural municipality in the northwest of Lanzarote. From the village of Soo itself, the path ascends towards the Pico Colorado (206m) located behind the village.
    The Caldera Trasera can be seen in our ascent between the cisterns that collect the run-off water. The top of the Montaña de Soo, a huge Caldera of almost 300 metres high, offers extraordinary panoramic views over the different volcanoes of the area.
    ] Continuing then along the sea of Jable through cereal fields and sweet potatoes, we will arrive to the Montaña Chica (116m). Here we find a scenery made up of the remains of old buildings and a drinking trough for livestock, now in disuse. The islands of La Graciosa, Alegranza and Montaña Clara are outlined in the background next to the imposing Risco de Famara on the way back to Soo.

    On the North Coast

    The route starts directly at the Jardín de Cactus in Guatiza, a botanical paradise created by the Canarian artist Cesar Manrique. After crossing the village and reaching the church, the path goes towards the Caldera de la Montaña Tinamala (old mouth of the volcano) and runs along the coast, crossing the urbanization Los Cocoteros, reaching the Natural Swimming Pool Cueva del Agua and the nudist urbanization of Charco del Palo.
    This is a route that offers several possibilities to take a bath, along the way. La Olla, a natural pool of 10 metres in diameter, is possibly the most pleasant spot to do so.  Now the return path crosses abandoned farms with volcanic scoria and tuneras. A landscape full of contrasts in gentle ascent until you reach the Cactus Garden.

    Biking on La Graciosa

    Today we are going to La Graciosa!  But first you have to drive to the port of Orzola, where the catamaran "El Graciosero" will take you in just over 20 minutes to Caleta del Sebo, the docking place in La Graciosa.
    There awaits you our bicycle with which you can ride along the tracks and discover such spectacular enclaves as Pedro Barba, the spectacular Playa de Las Conchas in the north or the Playa Francesa in the south.
    La Graciosa is a peaceful island of fishermen that lives away from the tourist frenzy of its neighbour Lanzarote. Its turquoise waters and the beautiful beaches of white sand invite to enjoy the sea. But the absence of traffic offers an unusual opportunity to cycle along its tracks in a slow and safe way.
    And in the late afternoon "El Graciosero" will take you back to Orzola to return to your hotel in Lanzarote.

    The Famara Cliffs

    From the beautiful Villa de Haría the trail heads towards the Risco de Famara, a natural wall located in the northwest corner of the island of Lanzarote. From the top of the majestic cliff we will enjoy splendid views towards the small island of La Graciosa.
    The path runs southwards along the edge of the cliff with a spectacular panoramic view towards the Beach of Famara. And on the way back towards the Valley of the Thousand Palm Trees, we are accompanied by a splendid view of the Volcano of La Corona. But at the end of this first route in Lanzarote, the house-museum of the artist Cesar Manrique in Haría is a must-see. There he lived and painted in peace with his land during the last years of his life.
