Barranco Casa

Views from Bco. Casa to Playa Quemada

A very beautiful hike with the possibility of swimming at lonely beaches.
At the ‘destination’ a dreamlike surprise awaits us to which there are interesting stories…

In the summer months the landscape of the nature reserve ‘Los Ajaches’ is at first sight very barren – but at second sight an amazing variety opens up in this dry nature.
In winter the Ajaches are characterized by the blue blossoms of the viper’s bugloss and other flowers. As always, we will go into geology and other peculiarities of this unique landscape to give you that Lanzarote feeling.

The hike is on very accessible paths and trails with slight ascents and descents. The difficulty (2 out of 5) is only due to the length of more than 9 km.

If you want to take advantage of the opportunity to swim, don’t forget a towel and bathing clothes.

Ajaches Valle Yaiza

Hike with very nice views in the south of Lanzarote

The view in the direction of Timanfaya.

We start near the village of Las Casitas de Femés and climb onto the Caldera Gritana, from where we reach the Atalaya de Femés via Tablero and other hills (Los Lomos). On the way we will have fantastic views of Timanfaya National Park, as well as the picturesque towns of Yaiza and Uga and the high valley of La Degollada. The Atalaya de Femés is the second highest peak on Lanzarote and from here we enjoy the wide view over Playa Blanca and the strait La Bocaina, all the way over to Fuerteventura.

Length: approx. 8 km
Duration: approx. 4.5 hours incl. breaks
Difficulty: 3 of 5 medium
Terrain: 2 out of 5 – scree, sand and rocky ground, several smaller climbs alternate with flatter sections. You should be able to walk stably on uneven ground. This hike should be well doable even with existing fear of heights, but please inform us in advance if necessary.

Arrival with your own or rented car – pick up for an extra charge.
Refreshment possible afterwards – participation is optional.
You should have the following with you: Sun protection, sufficient water (approx. 1 l per person), snack, a light jacket – if it gets windy, photo equipment, sturdy shoes/closed shoes
Please note: there is no possibility to buy drinks or snacks on the way.

Note on the procedure for track walks (in contrary to circular walks): The meeting point is usually also the destination of the hike. After we have met at the meeting point, we leave one or two cars there. Then we drive with one or two cars to the starting point where the hike begins. At the end of the hike we reach the meeting point and take the cars parked there and then drive back to the starting point of the hike to pick up the remaining cars. Therefore we ask you to allow a little more time for this organizational necessity.

Rund um den Pico Redondo / Ajaches

Traumhaft schöne Wanderung in den Ajaches

Wir steigen von Femes auf in Richtung Pico Aceitunas. Dort sehen wir einen heiligen Ort der Ureinwohner sowie eine Nekropole derselben. Nach einigen Erklärungen und einer kurzen Rast geht es weiter zur Degollada de Portuges. Wir umrunden in der Folge den Pico Redondo in Richtung Süden. Nach ca. 2 Stunden erreichen wir eine kleine Finca, wo wir eine längere Pause einlegen. Danach geht es weiter mit fantastischen Ausblicken auf das Valle Higuera. Auf schmalen Pfaden erreichen wir dann die Ziegenfarm in Femes, von wo aus wir zum Ausgangspunkt zurückkehren. Selbstverständlich gibt es auf dieser – wie auf allen anderen Touren von uns – interessante und unterhaltsame Informationen zu Flora & Fauna, sowie Geschichte und Geologie. Lanzarote-Feeling eben.

Länge: 9,5 km
Dauer: ca. 4,5 Stunden incl. Pausen
Schwierigkeit: 3 von 5 mittelschwer
Terrain: 3 von 5; felsig, Pfad mit Geröll und Picon. Es geht immer wieder leicht bergauf und bergab. Man sollte auf unebenem Untergrund stabil laufen können. Diese Tour sollte auch mit Höhenangst machbar sein – aber uns im Vorfeld bitte mitteilen. Danke.
