• Lanzarote: the volcano island


    Wild, rural, untamed and sensual, the eastern of the Canary Islands offers a perfect profile for those who like to combine all kinds of activities during the holidays.

    The ‘Island of Volcanoes’ has a long evolution that takes us back to the Mesozoic Era, when  the furious volcanic activity, that has served to create such beauty and unique life conditions, begun.

    11 million years is a wonderfully longtime and in Lanzarote the run of that time has made a breathtaking work, almost like the art of a craftsman, shaping a sublime landscape that contains all kinds of mysteries.

    The heat continues priming the bowels of the earth at Lanzarote’s badlands, accentuating its special natural features that make Lanzarote a World Biosphere Reserve.

    The show is guaranteed to lovers of amazing landscapes, from the lava fields of Timanfaya National Park to the to the sandy beach languages of Famara or the surprises of volcanic tunnels as in Jameos del Agua. Flora, fauna, life in abundance in a unique and perfect natural laboratory.

    Sports and adventure activities in a very particular scenario: Hiking, canoeing, water sports, golf, diving… Everything blends perfectly with the attractive cultural offer that gives for all: Archaeological sites, exquisite cuisine, the International Museum of Contemporary Art, Saramago’s House, César Manrique Foundation…

    Moving up to this magical corner of the Canary Islands is even easier since operators like Air Europa have decided to increase its number of flights and connections to get even closer to Lanzarote. Also, you can find more activities and excursions through the island in Halconviajes.com.
