Guinate – Jerao – los Crateres

Starting near the small village of Guinate, we first walk through a cultivated area towards the fascinating cliffs of Jerao. After a short but steep climb we are rewarded with a fantastic view over the sea to the Archepilago de Chinijo (La Graciosa, Montaña Clara and Alegranza). These spectacular views accompany us for a while, until we descend again to a very special place, which is ideal for a short rest. From there we climb up again to the summits of the Quemada de Maguez and Los Helechos.
Climbing the top of these two volcanoes will surely be a highlight, of your holidays.
Especially during the winter months, Lanzarote might show itself from a completely different side than what one is used to or what you might expect: Flowers, meadows, a big variety of small plants and tender green as far as the eye can see.

But even without this special spectacle, this slightly exhausting hiking tour is something very special. The views over to Monte Corona and up to the Mirador del Rio or down to Arrieta is amazing.

As always, this tour is full of information about flora, fauna and history and of course in the context of the whole island. Lanzarote-Feeling at it’s best!

Geological excursion in Timanfaya – guided hike

Timanfaya landscape

We meet near Tinguaton, from where we take a gravel road straight into the heart of Timanfaya. We start our hike at the foot of a young volcano and walk on Picon (with a slight ascent) along an impressive lava river. The first absolute highlight is already waiting for us there. Let us surprise you!

Now we continue along the flank of the volcano Señalo, where a colourful and unexpectedly varied lava landscape awaits us. The many different, bizarre structures created by the volcanic eruptions in the 18th century invite you to take pictures. Now we also have a close look at one of the numerous “side craters” of the volcano. We can marvel at how many different ways there are for the lava to leave a volcano – thus forming interesting elements of the landscape. The further round trip takes place on the other side of the caldera, where easy terrain and a fantastic landscape with great views awaits us.

This landscape stimulates your imagination, touches your soul and makes you feel calm and devotional. A completely different world…

Note: The duration of barely 4 hours is due to the fact that there is so much to see and the participants get detailed explanations about plate tectonics, geology and volcanism and of course also about the many specialities of Lanzarote. In particular, the colourful structures in front of us are explained in detail in an entertaining but nevertheless scientific way.

Promise: This will be one of the most unforgettable tours you have ever experienced! If you think that lava landscape consists only of monotonous black rock and quickly becomes boring, we will teach you a better one today.
