Diverse with flora and fauna on an unparalleled, volcanic landscape, Lanzarote offers a
plethora of sightseeing to visitors who are looking for the perfect getaway. Hike Fire Mountains, relax on sun-drenched beaches and simply enjoy tranquil island life.
Located on the southern coast, the former fishing village of Playa Blanca bustles with life
around its port. It's also near the pristine sands and waters of Papagayo Beaches.
A volcanic eruption formed a lava tube five miles long here 5,000 years ago. A 45-minute
tour leads visitors down two chasms, the Cueva de los Verdes, nearly one mile in length.
Upon reaching the Islote de Hilario lookout point amid the ""Fire Mountains,"" a magma
chamber 2.5 miles below the surface heats up pebbles a few inches underfoot to 212°F.
The five-island chain off the coast comprises a natural park, with the island of La Graciosa
boasting Europe's largest marine reserve. It's also the only one that's inhabited.
The 849-foot peak is all that's left of this once volcanic island of the archipelago.
Uninhabited and a sanctuary for marine birds, the private island sold for 9€ million in 2007.
150 different species live in the park, which also helps to save endangered animals. The
parrot show takes place at 12:00PM, followed by the penguin and otter feeding times.
A 50-foot sculpture of old water tanks is the work of local artist César Manrique. The site
provides a glimpse into the island's past, with the farm house showcasing daily life.
To relax and enjoy a nice vacation, consider a minimum of seven nights. If you have or want
extra time to explore many points around the island, then allow yourself 10 - 14 days in total.
The best way to see the island is to have a rental car. As for public transportation, there are
buses operating within the towns themselves and those that link the main cities (i.e. Arrecife
to Playa Blanca is 55 minutes away).
If you plan to take a day-trip from Playa Blanca to the town of Corralejo on Fuerteventura,
expect to pay no more than 20€ round-trip. You can book directly with companies at the port,
and the journey takes 35 minutes.
You'll find accommodations concentrated in the main coastal cities of Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise and in the capital city of Arrecife. However, there are also places scattered in small towns around the interior of the island.

- Best time to visitTemperatures on the island are great year-round, so Lanzarote experiences peaks in the winter and summer, making spring and fall the best times to go if you want to warm weather and fewer crowds. In the fall, the winds die down and the water is warmer from being heated all summer.
What people are saying about Lanzarote
Our guide, Raquel, was very knowledgeable and happy to take the time to answer all our questions. The trail itself wasn't very difficult and gave a nice view on the different aspects of the volcanic activity in Lanzarote. We were a small group (5) which made the hike in the volcano area very enjoyable.
This is not a tour to actually walk around the volcanoes (you need to book a “hike around the volcano” tour for that) but gives a good background knowledge of them. The demonstrations of the heat from the trapped magma were amazing and educational. Going around the lava beds and volcanoes by coach was a fantastic incite showing the different formations caused by lava and gas which had come from the volcanoes during their eruptions in the 1730s. The vineyard part of the tour was good for wine lovers as you get to try some local wines and the way they grow the vines is very ingenious. Finally the Jameos del Agua was unbelievable. How someone can see a cave that was once full of the locals rubbish, and then create a wonderful place to eat and provide a great venue for parties and weddings was incredible, and the bonus of an auditorium with its great acoustics - outstanding.
This is a fantastic trip. Very well organised with exceptionally friendly staff. The visit to lobos itself is well worth the cost with an impressive packed lunch which included sandwiches yoghurt drinks (including a can of beer.) There is plenty of time to enjoy the island and swim at your leisure. However the highlight of our trip was on the way to the island we saw and photographed both bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales. To top it all we also saw flying fish! Very memorable trip. One more off the bucket list.
This was a great trip. I laughed for 3 hours. The views were amazing. The staff were great and the other people were lovely. The buggy’s were fast, the gears were very hard to work and the hand break is broken- so uphill starts we’re tough. There was loads of off road driving which was a little scary as it was very bumpy and dusty which made it so funny and scary st the same time. Advise to wear a scarf, trainers, old clothes and sunglasses as it’s very dusty. It went on for over 3 hours which was s little long but I would defiantly recommend this trip. My partner did all the driving as I was too nervous- I didn’t see any women driving ha We’re still laughing about this trip and the photos are classic. Well worth the money. Best memory of the holiday.
Michael, a local guide, and the bus driver make the activity fun and interesting! Very well organized. Puntual and safe activity. We had no problems. Recomended (if you think the price is gonna be worth it).
