Water in Lanzarote – a journey to the historical development of the island (part 1 and 2).

The old water pipe from Risco de Famara to Arrecife.

This hike is divided into two parts. Both stages are absolutely unique, both scenically and because of the historical background. On one part of the hike we move in the extremely charming area between Nazaret and Tahiche. Impressive views in the interior of the island, in the context of the development of Lanzarote. Geologically very interesting here is also the black lava flow of the volcano Nueces, which will accompany us part of the way.
Part 1: historical development part 1 – “Oigue”

In the second part of the (circular) hike we walk along the Risco de Famara with fantastic views of the Risco, the bay of Famara and the offshore islands of the Chinijo archipelago. Again, the hike is peppered with lots of interesting information about the island’s economic development, flora and fauna, and life in general a hundred years ago.
Tours off the beaten tourist track are our passion. This tour focuses on the economic development – under meager conditions. Even without interest in the historical details you will experience something very special here. Lanzarote feeling.
