Haria – Valle Malpaso

View into the Barranco Elvira Sanchez

We hike from Haria upwards through the Valle Malpaso to the little forest (El Bosquecillo) and then down through the Barranco Elvira Sanchez back to Haria

Apart from the fantastic views during the ascent and also from the grove (whose characteristics are explained on this excursion), the special attraction of this hike lies for us in the descent through the Barranco Elvira Sanchez. At first we are in a valley that also reminds us of alpine areas because of its rocks and vegetation, which we would never have expected to find on Lanzarote. In the further course we follow a creek bed whose lush flora is impressive even in summer and gives us a whole new picture of Lanzarote.

We have fantastic views to the south (Arrieta, Punta Mujeres) as well as to the Atlantic Ocean 600m below our feet with the bay of Famara.
