Lanzarote (Island)



It is said that Lanzarote is the most volcanic-looking of the Canary Islands. Its "lunar" landscape, covered in craters, canyons and valleys of solidified lava, is one of its main attractions, but not the only one.

Lanzarote is one of the oldest of the Canaries, the result of volcanic activity that started 22 million years ago. The passing millennia have moulded its landscapes and structure, giving it truly spectacular countryside, a UNESCO designated Biosphere Reserve.

The constant warm, spring weather means you can enjoy the beauty and contrasts of its coast at any time of year. There are beaches with black or golden sand, in the towns or in protected nature areas... There are also places of great ecological value to be discovered, such as Timanfaya National Park, where you can see a huge variety of volcanic formations, and the Chinijo Archipelago Nature Reserve, a refuge for many species of marine birds.

If you would like to find out more about the special relationship that exists between local people and their unique volcanic surroundings, visit the island's Art, Culture and Tourism Centres. They were created to protect the island's heritage. Each one is different, and together they offer an essential, overall panorama of local culture.

If you also like sport, then here you will find a host of possibilities. You can play golf amidst lava and cactus, go diving on the island's beautiful sea bed, go deep sea fishing and surfing too - the waves here are considered some of the best in Europe.

You can get to Lanzarote by air and sea, via the capital, Arrecife. The best way to get around inland is to hire a car - the longest distance between any two points is only 71 kilometres.
