7-Night Lanzarote Guided Walking Holiday

Teguise village on Lanzarote island
Duration: 7 nights
Type: European Centre Based
Walking Grade: 2 & 3
from £1,229pp £1,179pp with flights

Explore most parts of the island, encompassing dramatic views and landscapes. Enjoy volcanic scenery including the extraordinary Timanfaya National Park and walk in green valleys, pretty white beaches and visit the charming neighbouring island of La Graciosa. Learn about César Manrique, an artist and architect dedicated to preserving his home island, and explore the winding streets of the fascinating old capital, Teguise. Lanzarote is the easternmost of the Canary Islands, lying 80 miles off the coast of Africa and about 650 miles from mainland Spain. The island measures 40 miles from north to south and around 16 miles east to west with a warm and stable climate all year round. Situated in the northeast of Lanzarote, Costa Teguise is a popular resort and attracts many visitors. Here you will find an extensive promenade with several large sandy beaches and all of the amenities you require on your holiday. Our walking itinerary covers most parts of the island, encompassing dramatic views and landscapes. The volcanoes have created a chain of hills which stretch down the island’s spine. From these hills the vistas change before your eyes as the sun and clouds pass overhead, eclipsing in a kaleidoscope of colours that sparkle on the volcanic craters. The northwest of the island is famous for its coastal scenery with breathtaking cliffs and powerful seas. We also visit Lanzarote’s smaller neighbour, La Graciosa, which can be reached by a short ferry journey. As you step off the ferry in Caleta del Sebo you also step back in time on this tranquil island. There are no cars, only long golden beaches and marvellous views across the channel, El Rio, to the majestic cliffs of Lanzarote’s northern coastline.
