Dazzle your senses with the volcanic landscapes of the Timanfaya national park, with this guided tour of the south of Lanzarote, one of the most charming areas of the island.
South Lanzarote Excursion Itinerary
Having picked you up at your hotel, we make our way to the Timanfaya National Park, one of the unmissable sights in Lanzarote.
We'll take the so called 'Volcano Route', to see its breathtaking landscapes, seemingly cut directly from another planet. This land hides a special power, one which we can put to the test through geothermic demonstrations on Hilario islet. In this area of the park the subterranean landscape reaches between 400 and 600 degrees centigrade, another reason the mountains are known as the "Mountains of Fire". Anyone who wants to check out this stunning terrain in a slightly different way can also opt for an optional camel ride.
Following this we head towards the wine growing area, La Geria. In this volcanic soil the Malvasía grape grows, allowing the creation of some excellent and distinctive wines. We will visit a winery to learn to distinguish its characteristic taste, and afterwards you will have free time to have lunch before taking up our route around the south of Lanzarote.
The tour makes another stop in El Golfo, and in this part of the island we can see two important wonders of nature. On the one hand, the Charco de los Clicos or "The Green Lagoon" coloured in this way due to the algae in the area. On the other hand, we will see the steep and sharp cliffs - Los Hervideros, where the volcanic lava created marine grottos. As a final flourish to this tour we will take a look at the Janubio Salt Pans, an important place of salt production which has been active since the end of the 19th century.
From the salt pans we will head back to the hotels, returning late in the evening.
