If you’re wondering where to go for an upcoming holiday, you should definitely consider the exotic isle of Lanzarote.
It is located among the beautiful volcanic islands of the Canaries. The area is not only incredibly breathtaking, it’s also known as one of the most captivating wine regions in the world. So if you’re a wine-loving nature enthusiast, this place is a must!
Lanzarote is a fabulously diverse travel-friendly destination where you can enjoy and relax amidst being surrounded by exquisite natural surroundings. It also features sites ideal for the enjoyment of all members of the family. There are serene spots of outstanding natural beauty that is absolutely astonishing to visit and see in real life!
In case you plan on visiting Lanzarote, I recommend contacting Lanzarote Guides for the ultimate tours in the island that will leave you wanting for more. I was able to luckily experience being toured by the team at Lanzarote Guides and I commend on how experienced and reliable this tour company is. Truly, they would know where to take you to make your stay in Lanzarote heart-stirringly unforgettable. Everything in your itinerary will be very well-organized and you will see parts of the island that you didn’t know existed. Some localities are best explored with an experienced guide because only a local touring agency can show you the real face of the city as smoothly, conveniently and as luxuriously as possible.
One of the tours you can enjoy is the Lanzarote Grand Tour, which will take you from the north to the south of the island, showing you the far-fetched treasures of Lanzarote. The tour will take only a day, as you will back in your hotel in time for supper at 6.30 p.m. This Grand Tour is the greatest way to see the most important geographic sights of the island.
The first couple of stops are the Cave of the Greens and Jameos del Agua formed when Monte Corona volcano erupted 4,000 years ago. This cave system is part of the Cueva de los Verdes lava tube shaped when molten lava continued to flow as the surface hardened. Also known as the Tunnel of Atlantis, it is the largest submerged volcanic tunnel in the world at 1,500 meters long!
The tour then continues to a viewpoint featuring spectacular views of La Graciosa from the Cliffs of Famara. Graciosa Island is another volcanic island in the Canary Islands of Spain and is known to be the inspiration for the legendary children’s book, Treasure Island based from an incident that took place here in the 1760’s. The tour allows time for a traditional local lunch where you’ll have a chance to sample a few simple but delicious Spanish tapas that will surely remind you that you are still in fact within the boundaries of Spain while being physically located in the continent of Africa.
After lunch, the tour sets off to the wine region of La Geria to experience wine tastings in a unique vineyard winery. You will continue on to the lunar landscape of the Timanfaya National Park where an option to ride a camel is available whilst basking in the view of what seems like the most celestial place on Earth. Then you will visit the home of the Fire Mountains where you will see incredible geysers. You will witness the power of geothermal heat and visit a natural oven, where food is prepared for the nearby El Diablo Restaurant. After six years of eruptions that created this exceptional moon-like landscape, gorges of solidified lava and trifling canyons and volcanoes, you will finally see first-hand why Lanzarote is widely known to be the island of 1,000 volcanoes.
Later in the afternoon, you’ll also discover the El Golfo lagoon located on the island’s west coast. It is a picturesque bay where the Olivine stone, sometimes used as a gemstone called peridot, was first discovered. This gem is hidden inside black lava rocks. You will learn interesting details about the salt extraction industry in the area and its importance to the island at Salinas del Janubio. This is only a part of what you will enjoy with Lanzarote Guides. Other fabulous sites you’ll visit throughout the day include the Amphitheatre Cactus Garden and the Lava Coast with the Hervideros.
Don’t miss out on such an incredible adventure around the bewitching island Lanzarote! If you’re not so much into pristine natural beauty, there’s another possible precious tour that you can take back home with you that is all about the city. Lanzarote Arrecife City Tour coming up next! Stay tuned.
