Tour

Lanzarote - The Land Of Volcanoes

Lanzarote - The Land Of Volcanoes

Degree of difficulty - B

Enjoy a ride through some of the most dramatic landscapes to be found in Europe. These islands,  located off the African coastline are of volcanic origin. Lanzarote suffered a series of eruptions in the 18th century and as a result has some fascinating landscapes with volcanoes everywhere we look and immense lava flows - some of the most unique riding you are likely to encounter anywhere.

The unique architectural works of Cesar Manrique form a valuable complement to the volcanic environment, and his enduring influence and ecological concern has meant that the island has escaped the excesses of modern-day mass tourism.

Last but not least, the benign climate, neither hot in summer nor cold in winter, means that cycling is possible all year round. Our combination of rides and free days mean you can choose whether you ride or take the occasional day off. Definitely a trip not to be missed!

 

Day 1 Arrive in Lanzarote. (Arrecife Airport).
Today we arrive in Lanzarote. The day is free to enjoy the beach resort of Costa Teguise.

Day 2 Costa Teguise – Haría 34 to 52km
Today we ride from Costa Teguise to the inland town of Haría.. En route we have the opportunity to visit Manrique’s famous works such as El Jardín de Cactus, Los Jameos del Agua, El Mirador del Río which form an integral part of the volcanic landscape. We also have the opportunity to visit the volcanic cave of La Cueva de los Verdes. We take in fishing villages without losing sight of the impressive Monte Corona. Finally we arrive in the picturesque village of Haría surrounded by its uncountable palm trees. Routes of 34, 45, 52 km.

Day 3 Haría – San Bartolomé 27 or 43 km
From Haría, we take the road down towards Teguise, the one-time capital of the island. Our route gives us spectacular views down over the coast. Teguise itself is a delightful small town with typical architecture and many pleasant bars for refreshment. From here we continue towards San Bartolomé and the fascingating wine-producing area of La Geria to our country hotel where we spend the next two nights.

Day 4 San Bartolomé – San Bartolomé 50 km
Today is a free day spent in our rural hotel. We can choose to relax, or enjoy a round ride, or even both. Our round ride takes us towards the beautiful beach of Famara with the spectacular backdrop of volcanic cliffs. After following the coast, we head across extensive lava fields and a lunar landscape back to San Bartolomé. 50 km circuit, but shorter route to Fundación César Manrique or Teguise available.

Day 5 San Bartolomé - Playa Blanca 47 or 58 km
From San Bartolomé we head towards the island’s main attraction, the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya. This is where Lanzarote’s volcanic nature is at its most spectacular. The eruptions of 1730 – 1736 buried around a quarter of the whole island, including several villages, and gave rise to the impressive lava and volcano landscape that we see today. From here we head down to the south of the island, stopping en route to visit the seaside volcanic crater of El Golfo before we finally reach the seaside village of Playa Blanca.

Day 6 Playa Blanca – Playa Blanca 36 or 70 km
Playa Blanca sits at the very south of the island and looks across toFuerteventura. Today we can take a boat across to Corralejo and enjoy a visit or a ride on another island. Alternatively, we can enjoy a day in Playa Blanca and take the opportunity to visit the nearby coves and beaches of Papagayo, the best on the island and unspoilt by tourism. Another option is to visit El Golgo for a seafood lunch by the beach. Route to El Golfo 36 km. Fuerteventura circuit 70 km.

Day 7 Playa Blanca – Arrecife 47km
From Playa Blanca, we head across the dramatic hills of Femés before heading to the wine country ofLa Geria.Here, the unusual vineyard cultivation techniques have given rise to a fascinating landscape not to be seen anywhere else in the world, and producing some fine wines. We then descend to the coast and follow a nice promenade from Puerto del Carmen to Arrecife.
