Full description
Be transported to another time through the paved streets and historical plazas of Teguise, the municipal capital of Teguise. Enjoy a great view of El Valle de las Mil Palmeras (the valley of the thousand palm trees) on the way to Los Valles towards Haría. Then visit the Cueva de los Verdes, a uniquely beautiful cave with an indescribable interior formed by volcanic eruptions. After passing through Arrieta and Mala, stop at the aloe museum where you will learn about the benefits of aloe. Continue to Guatiza to have a look to the prickly pears plantations where the natural dye, cochineal, is produced. Explore the old quarry where the famous artist César Manrique perfectly fused nature and art. Follow the road to the César Manrique Foundation, located in the old house of the magnificent Lanzarote-born artist.

    The experience is very interesting, you visit points that, in my opinion, are the most beautiful on the island. It is not reported in the app but the Marique foundation cannot be visited because it has been closed since the covid-19 pandemic began. It was replaced with a visit to the Mirador del Rio

    Absolutely Fabulous!!

    What a lovely way to spend a day. We really enjoyed every minute and would highly recommend this tour. There were so many amazing things to see, it was quite overwhelming at times. We enjoyed the lunch. Our guide was so charming, clearly passionate about Lanzarote and spoke four different languages so confidently, I was very impressed.

    Très bonne excursion, guide très sympathique qui parle très bien français comme prévu. Nous avons visité le jardin des cactus, puis le musée de l’aloe vera (plus un moyen pour pousser les gens à acheter qu’un musée), las cuevas de los verdes puis nous nous sommes arrêtés à Haria pour manger. Petit bémol, le restaurant n’était vraiment pas exceptionnel, un petit buffet de quelques plats et même pas de dessert a part une pauvre banane. Puis nous sommes allés au mirador del Rio à la place de la fondation Manrique à cause des nouvelles horaires COVID. Je peux vous dire que le mirador en vaut le détour et ce n’est vraiment pas une perte de temps, un peu plus de temps sur place n’aurait pas été de refus pour contempler cette magnifique vue. Puis passage à Teguise, un petit temps libre sur place aurait peut être été bien pour mieux découvrir la ville. Très bonne journée je recommande.
