After volcanic eruptions in the 18th century devastated nearly a quarter of the island’s surface, local farmers created a unique place where they began to cultivate the land without water. Enjoy a 9-kilometer walk and see how the area’s residents were able to overcome the volcanic catastrophe through their efforts and inventiveness.

José was an excellent host, both entertaining and knowledgeable. He arrived at exactly the time he suggested and then provided us with water and light snacks prior to the walk. Having advised us to bring wet weather clothing (which we didn't), he then handed us ponchos (which we needed). He walked at the pace of the group, wandering back and forth between the tortoises and the hares. He also incorporated plenty of stops en route to explain the history of certain plants, activities and landmarks. Finally, we ended up at Bodega Rubicon winery, sampling a few od the excellent Lanzarote wines, which we never even knew existed prior to this excursion. The entire 5 hour walk was well worth the money and is highly recommended.

The hike was really great. Our Gudie explained everything to us very precisely and in a way that was easy to understand. When you see how the wine is grown there and what kind of work you put into it, you know why this wine is more expensive. But it's worth every penny! The area is beautiful and fascinating. The little wine tasting at the end of the hike was excellent. Unfortunately you cannot buy the wine from us. That's why we took a few bottles with us from there.

Fantastic guides, really enjoyable experience, i highly recommend this tour. It was the highlight of my holiday after a disappointing hotel and in an area very much unsuited to my active and simple lifestyle, so this was a extremely welcome escape and a chance to walk and see the 'real' lanzarote. 5 stars and run by people who REALLY CARE. Do it!
