Choosing the level of your walks

Our easy grading system shows whether a region offer gentle strolls or more challenging routes to help you choose the right holiday for you. Difficulty is measured on many factors such as distance, ascent/descent, terrain, weather and more. There's no magic formula, but from our experience we grade our walks 1 to 5 (where 1 is easy and 5 hard). Our challenger holidays require a high level of fitness and stamina.

Day 8: Departure day

Please note that the itinerary outlined is provisional and could be subject to change. A finalised itinerary will be available at the resort. Your leaders will brief you every evening about the following day’s walks.

Local area

Lanzarote is the easternmost of the Canary Islands, located 80 miles off the coast of Africa and about 650 miles from mainland Spain, with a good all year climate. The island measures 40 miles from north to south and around 16 miles east to west.

Costa Teguise

Situated to the northeast of Lanzarote, Costa Teguise is a popular resort and attracts many visitors. Here there is an extensive promenade with several large sandy beaches. A short stroll along this promenade will take you into the centre of Costa Teguise, or to beaches either side of the old town. If you are feeling more energetic then bike hire is available, and there is an 18-hole golf course nearby.

César Manrique

"Lanzarote is like an unframed, unmounted work of art — and I hung it and held it up for all to see." -César Manrique

Tradition has been embraced by the islanders, but so has the foresight of César Manrique, a famous artist who, after studying art abroad, returned to Lanzarote and campaigned tirelessly for Lanzarote to remain unspoilt by the mass tourism of the 1970s. Consequently, tourism and tradition sit hand in hand today, thanks to his ideas and stunning designs which have left his mark on the island. You may choose to enjoy a tour of César Manrique’s astonishing contributions to Lanzarote: The César Manrique Foundation, the Cactus Gardens and the Jameos del Agua, a restaurant built in ancient lava bubbles and tunnels.


The capital of the island, Arrecife dates back to the 15th Century, when it was a fishing village protected by the volcanic reef, which protects the harbour. In fact, in Spanish “arrecife” literally means “reef”. The village grew and became the island’s capital in the late 19th Century. It is worth a visit for an exciting day out, with sandy beaches, the Museum of Modern Art and the old harbour, there is something for everyone. Arrecife can be reached by bus from Costa Teguise.

Did you Know?

Near Haria to the north of the island, there is a valley filled with palm trees. Traditionally, the locals planted a palm tree for every baby born, which has filled the valley.
