The calendar of the aborigines

Experimental Archaeology – the calendar of the Mahos/Guanchen – every year on December 21st – only in good weather. Crater hike on the traces of the ancient Canarians

Following the traces of the old-canarians (or Mahos, how the Guanches are called in Lanzarote) we hike into a volcanic crater after visiting an more than 1.000 years old Aljibe. In the crater we will learn about the history of these first settlers and how they lived. The way into the crater is well passable, but in some parts it may not be classified as “very easy”.
Finally we experience a fantastic event!

Snack of the Mahos

Cave hike – Jameo de la Gente – Puerta Falsa

We go into the second longest lava tunnel system on earth.

Even 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.

We enter the lava tunnel of volcano Monte Corona. The second longest lava tunnel system of the earth and approximately 13.000 – 15.000 years old. We walk and/or climb, partly through a section of this tunnel of a length of approximately 2 km, which in other parts also accommodates the Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua.

This world without (natural) light, in the bosom of lava will offer you an unforgettable experience – “Lanzarote-Feeling” at it’s best.

In the lava tunnel at Monte Corona – another world.

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.

Preis: 42 € pro Person

Treffpunkt: Teleclub Nazaret
