Going to Lanzarote? Not only does Lanzarote have delightfully warm temperatures, but also unbelievably beautiful sights. Check out the list of our favourite spots.
The fact that Lanzarote is a volcanic island can clearly be seen in the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya. The ‘fire mountains’ (Montañas del Fuego) are the most popular attraction on the island. They give the landscape such a surrealistic impression that you feel like you’re on the moon. Fun fact: there is still volcanic activity in the area. Food served in the adjoining restaurant is heated by volcanic heat.
Did you know that Lanzarote is the only place in Europe where camelids live in the wild? Take advantage of the opportunity to take a ride on the back of a Majorero dromedary. The animal takes you along all the sights in the landscape at a nice slow pace. This makes a dromedary ride the ultimate form of relaxation! A tour through the Timanfaya National Park is also highly recommended.
The cactus garden is one of the most unique sights on Lanzarote. Firstly, this is due to the location: Jardín de Cactus is shaped like an amphitheatre. The garden is the creation of the artist César Manrique, who made sure that the plants are presented in a unique way and that various works of art are incorporated into the garden. An unforgettable experience!
During an eruption of the volcano Corona, a beautiful volcanic system of caves developed that was the private property of the Verdes family in the 16th century. Cueva de los Verdes has around 7 kilometres of caves and passages. You can visit them on a guided tour. A natural concert hall is found inside the caves with excellent acoustics. Be amazed and discover these underground sights on Lanzarote.
Lanzarote has all kinds of sights, including the La Geria wine region, where you can admire vast vineyards. Fun fact: grapes are grown in pits here surrounded by a little wall. This protects the fruit from the wind and allows the vines to absorb enough moisture from the soil. A visit to Lanzarote offers a unique opportunity to sample wine unique to Spain, which cannot be purchased in other countries.
