Tinajo West

View over the landscape west of Tinajo – in the background the Risco de Famara

Very easy distance hike in the rugged north-west of Lanzarote.

The first half of this hike takes us through agricultural areas west of Tinajo – the capital of the municipality of the same name. Depending on the season we see the fields in different colors, where lentils, carrots, potatoes, pumpkins and many more are cultivated. The details of this so-called dry field cultivation are explained in detail.
Finally we arrive at the foot of Mta. Tenesara (a sacred mountain of the Mahos/Native people), where the second part of our hike continues. Along the border of the lava fields of the eruptions in the 18th century we experience the “hard contrast” between young lava and old landscape very closely – pure Lanzarote feeling.
Finally, we reach the coast of the small settlement of Tenesara via a narrow path, where we take a longer break and marvel at the fascinating surf.

Total time: 4 Stunden
Net-walking time: 2,5 horas
Distance: 7,5 km

Terrain: 1/5 you should be able to walk firmly on uneven grounds
Difficulty: 1/5

Meeting point: Sportstadium Tinajo
Price: 39€.

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.

Lava in La Florida

Easy hike between the vine-area of La Geria and the lavaflows from the 18th century.

Impressive lava-flows in La Geria

We start along the vineyards in the foothills of La Geria. Heading west, we leave the paved and unpaved roads and walk on the young lava produced by the volcano “Nueces” in March 1736. The fantastic shapes and colors of the lava offer beautiful motives, also for photographers.

After about 2 km we take a break sheltered from the wind in a lava formation embedded in a depression. After another kilometer we reach the LZ 58, which we follow a short distance to the south, before we turn east again and start our way back on small paths through the lava. Further on we reach a small finca, which invites us to rest again, before we cover the last two kilometers on Picón and Lava.

On this tour we also like to touch the geological context of the island, if there is an interest in it among the participants.

Apart from the two “big breaks”, we often make a short stop and explain little things along the way – currently we hope (after the rain) for some greenery, so that we can also show and explain something about the island’s flora to the participants.

You should have the following with you: Sun protection, enough water (approx. 1 l per person), snack, a light jacket – in case it gets windy, photo equipment, sturdy shoes/closed shoes.

Length: approx. 6 km
Duration: approx. 3 – 3.5 hours
Difficulty: easy and flat, without major climbs
Terrain: mostly lava, but not dofficult and walkable

Price: 32 € per person

Cave hiking “Cueva Naturalistas”

Amazing excursion into a Jameo (lava-tube) in the eastern part of Timanfaya.

Playing with light in the dark

With helmet and headlamp we enter a lava tunnel of the volcano Nueces, that was originated in March 1736 as the penultimate volcano in the big series of volcanic eruptions in the 18th century. We walk, and/or climb, partly through an approximately 550m long section of this tunnel.
This world without (natural) light, in the lap of lava will offer you an unforgettable experience – pure “Lanzarote-Feeling”.

This excursion is a very nice and relatively easy caving tour in the eastern Timanfaya area. Contrary to other caves in Lanzarote, this small excursion is also possible for people who do not like the extreme tours. Most of the Jameo has a stable and relatively flat floor, so that only at the entrance and exit (and once in between) some climbing is necessary.

A dream for every hobby geologist. Lanzarote-Feeling at it’s best.
Also those who can claim to have already learned, hiked and seen a lot about the fascinating world of the volcanoes in Lanzarote will surely experience something completely new and absolutely spectacular here.

Total duration: almost 2 hours incl. breaks
Net walking time: almost one and a half hours underground
Distance: about 1 km, of which about 600m underground
Terrain: 2 of 5 underground – with helmet and headlamp, sometimes climbing over rocks and scree; fear of heights or claustrophobia should not necessarily be an issue, but let us know in advance so that we can take it into account. You must be able to walk stably on uneven ground!
Difficulty: 3 of 5

Price: 28,00 € per person
Pick up at extra charge. Equipment: Helmet + headlamp (can be rented from us for a fee of 8,00€)
Sturdy shoes/closed shoes, sufficient water (approx. 1 l per person)
Refreshment possible afterwards – participation is optional.

Meeting point: Church in Masdache

Diamond-Excursion

Exclusive hike through La Geria and the lava fields bordering the Timanfaya National Park.

We start in La Geria and walk first on farm tracks at the foot of the volcano Diama along the wine fields. Of course we will go into the different aspects of farming in the UNESCO World Heritage Site before we dive into the lava of the eruptions of 1730-1736.
As we will be travelling on private land at the edge of the National Park, this excursion cannot be booked with any other provider or done on your own.

Thus, we really walk right through the lava of the eruptions of 1730-1736 and are fascinated by this bizarre landscape.

We would like to explicitly point out that some passages (approximately 2 x 500m) over the sharp-edged lava can be a challenge for the participants.

On this excursion we will also explain to you the volcanism of the Canary Islands in general, but also the peculiarities of the eruptions on Lanzarote in the 18th century.

Total duration: 3 hours 30′
Net walking time: 2 hours
Distance: approx. 6km

Terrain: 3 out of 5 you should be able to walk stable on uneven ground
Difficulty: 3 of 5

Meeting place: Bodega Rubicon/La Geria
Price: 39€

Arrival with rental 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. 1l per person), snack, a light jacket – in case it gets windy, photo equipment, sturdy shoes/closed shoes

Circular walk Montaña Cardona

View from the top of Mta. Cardona

Easy and comfortable circumnavigation of Montaña Cardona with ascent to the crater rim.

We start our easy and relaxed hike on an unpaved road that takes us along vineyards and fruit orchards right into the lava fields in the outskirts of Timanfaya, where from 1730-1736 the biggest eruptions in history of Lanzarote took place. We approach the Montaña Cardona, a rather flat volcano, circle it on its eastern flank and take a first break at a surprising place.
Afterwards, we walk alongside its flank up to the edge of the crater with an impressive wide and all-round view. We walk along the wide, flat crater rim for a little while and can enjoy the landscape in peace and amazement before leaving it on another comfortable path. Now the path leads us into the half-open crater. Here we can admire the plants and several different kinds of lava.
This circular path impresses with its spectacular views on a mainly flat stretch of road, a short ascent is to be made on the way to the crater rim.

As always, there is a lot of interesting and entertaining information about history, flora and fauna as also geology on this tour.

You should have the following with you: sun protection, sufficient water (approx. 1 l per person), snack, a light jacket – in case it gets windy, photo equipment, sturdy shoes/closed shoes.

Length: approx. 7 km

Tinguaton – volcanoes and vine

Caldera Quemada

Along the lava fields of the Timanfaya we first cross an inconspicuous volcanic group before we cross the vineyards near Mancha Blanca. We see and understand the wine cultivation on Lanzarote with all its efforts and agonies that lead to a unique quality. In the further course we come to an old site of the indigenous people. The fascinating history of the aborigines in Lanzarote and the Canary Islands will be briefly explained. Finally, we go up to a volcano – the Caldera Quemada. The view from the edge of the crater into the crater and beyond makes us amazed. On the way back there is a little surprise… And now we experience the lava landscape very closely.

As always, there is a lot of interesting and entertaining information about history, flora and fauna and geology on this tour.

Lanzarote – Reise zur historischen Entwicklung

Wasser auf Lanzarote – eine Reise zur historischen Entwicklung der Insel

Die alte Wasserleitung vom Risco de Famara nach Arrecife.

Diese Wanderung ist zweigeteilt. Beide Etappen sind sowohl landschaftlich als auch auf Grund des historischen Hintergrundes absolut einzigartig. Auf dem einen Teil der Wanderung bewegen wir uns in dem äußerst reizvollen Gebiet zwischen Nazaret und Tahiche. Eindrucksvolle Weitblicke im Inselinneren, im Kontext zur Entwicklung von Lanzarote. Geologisch sehr interessant ist hier auch der schwarze Lavafluss des Vulkans Nueces, der uns einen Teil der Strecke begleiten wird.

Im zweiten Teil der (Rund-) Wanderung laufen wir entlang des Risco de Famara mit fantastischen Ausblicken auf den Risco, die Bucht von Famara und die vorgelagerten Inseln des Chinijo-Archipels. Auch hier ist die Wanderung gespickt mit vielen interessanten Informationen zur wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung der Insel, zu Flora und Fauna und dem Leben im allgemeinen vor hundert Jahren.
Touren abseits der touristischen Pfade sind unsere Leidenschaft. Diese Tour hat die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung – unter kärglichen Bedingungen – im Focus. Auch ohne Interesse an den historischen Details erlebt ihr hier etwas ganz Besonderes. Lanzarote-Feeling eben.

Länge: 2 Wander-Etappen von 2,5 km und 5 km, gesamt ca. 7,5 km (diese beiden Etappen können auch getrennt voneinander dargestellt werden)
Dauer: insgesamt ca. 4,5 – 5 Stunden incl. Fahrzeit
Schwierigkeit: 2 von 5; Falls Höhenangst besteht, bitte uns im Vorfeld mitteilen. Danke.
Terrain: 2 von 5 – Man sollte auf unebenem Untergrund stabil laufen können.

Montaña Blanca

Fantastischer Gipfelblick – Lanzarote liegt uns zu Füßen

Panoramablick beim Aufstieg auf die Montaña Blanca.

Fantastische Aussichten erwarten uns nicht nur am Gipfel. Auf unserem Weg haben wir zunächst den Blick auf Tias und Puerto del Carmen sowie die Ajaches im Süden. Im weiteren Verlauf sehen wir Teile des einzigartigen Weinanbaugebiets “La Geria” von oben und auch die Feuerberge des Timanfaya in der Ferne. Diese kurze, aber knackige Wanderung begeistert vor allem durch das traumhafte Panorama am Gipfel.
