Select from either a half-day or full-day when booking then begin your exciting excursion with pickup from a meeting location in Arrecife, Puerto Calero, Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise or Puerto del Carmen. Climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and begin exploring the magnificent landscape of the island. See the Itinerary below for detailed information on each tour option.
Half-Day Tour:Travel through the village of Uga on your way to Timanfaya National Park. Stop here for an optional camel ride (own expense) and follow the Route of the Volcanoes, twisting round the slopes for grandstand views. Hear about the 18th-century eruptions that formed the surrounding cones and calderas and witness geothermic experiments; you can watch bundles of branches go up in flames within seconds of being tossed into fire pits.
Head out of the park to see the vine-coated fields in the fertile La Geria winemaking region and learn how the island’s crisp and fruity wines, made from the malvasia grapes, are cultivated. Then, head for a winery to sample a glass for yourself! Afterward, rejoin your coach for your return journey.
Full-Day Tour:After traveling through Uga and Timanfaya National Park to see the geothermal demonstrations, follow the Route of the Volcanoes to see some of the more spectacular lava formations as your guide explains how they were formed by past eruptions.
Enjoy a camel ride (own expense) and continue to the park’s lava-carved west coast where El Golfo, a jewel-green lagoon, awaits. Pause at the Janubio salt pans and see Los Hervideros, an area where waves have hollowed out craggy grottoes into the coastline.
Next, continue to the idyllic winemaking region of La Geria. See the vineyards where Lanzarote’s malvasia grape varietals are grown, and learn how they’re cultivated using the unique climate and landscape. Visit a winery to sample some wine and return to your coach for a drop-off at the meeting point.
