Haría – Barranco Ternesía & Atalaya

Wonderful and easy hike with small climbs and beautiful views around Haría.

View of Maguez from the summit

This family-friendly hike starts between the two villages Maguéz and Haría – located in the north of the island of Lanzarote. There we enter the little-known but all the more enchanting Barranco Ternesía.
This Barranco is a jewel, and offers in winter an incredibly diverse vegetation. But also in summer we like to show you the peculiarities that are hidden there.

The further course of the barranco leads us to the picturesque town of Haría with its Moorish ambience. After about 500m we leave Haría in northern direction and walk uphill on an unpaved road towards “Atalaya de Haría”, where we have a first big rest before we continue towards the summit. On the circular route around this small mesa we see the picturesque town of Haría from different perspectives and there are fantastic photo opportunities before we take another break on the summit, during which we enjoy the definitely most beautiful view of the village of Maguéz.

The way back to the starting point is an easy descent through a meadow and a wide path, passing picturesque agricultural fincas. As on all hikes, you will receive valuable and entertaining information about flora and fauna, as well as history and geology.

A table mountain with panorama – the Peña de la Pequeña.

Easy hike in the northern part of the island with fantastic views into the surrounding valleys and far over the sea.

The Peña de la Pequeña is a natural “viewing platform” with many wonderful perspectives in the northern part of the island.

We start our hike near the road (LZ10) that connects Haría and Los Valles and walk on the wide lane first slightly downhill to the saddle that runs between the Valle de Temisa and the Valle del Palomo in eastern direction. Then we continue flatly towards the east, always with a view of the valleys and the small rocky peak of Peña de la Pequeña in front of us. We hike past this rock formation on a slightly ascending path until we reach the end of the route with a view of the villages of the northern east coast and after a long rest, we start our way back.

Depending on the season, lush vegetation can await us along the entire route. You will learn interesting details about the flora and fauna, the formation of the island and other special features.

This easy hike is relatively new in our program and we are happy to show it to you. The Lanzarote feeling can be felt here in a special way.

Ajaches Valle Yaiza

Hike with very nice views in the south of Lanzarote

The view in the direction of Timanfaya.

We start near the village of Las Casitas de Femés and climb onto the Caldera Gritana, from where we reach the Atalaya de Femés via Tablero and other hills (Los Lomos). On the way we will have fantastic views of Timanfaya National Park, as well as the picturesque towns of Yaiza and Uga and the high valley of La Degollada. The Atalaya de Femés is the second highest peak on Lanzarote and from here we enjoy the wide view over Playa Blanca and the strait La Bocaina, all the way over to Fuerteventura.

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.

Arco Risco

Etwas anstrengend aber lohnenswert. Dieser Felsbogen ist spektakulär und liegt etwas abgeschieden mitten im Risco de Famara.

Bitte beachtet, dass wir Euch diese Wanderung nur anbieten, falls Ihr schon eine andere Wanderung mit uns gemacht habt, damit wir Euch und Eure Fähigkeiten einschätzen können und Euch nicht überfordern.

Barranco Tenegüime

A varied hike in the “Barranco de Tenegüime”, a fascinating notched valley near Guatiza.

Barranco Tenegüime

One would not think it possible that behind the simple entrance along agriculture suddenly such a natural wonder opens up. We first hike along a dried-out creek bed, through an amazingly diverse vegetation – while the steep walls of this notch valley around us get higher and higher. In this protected valley, one finds an astonishingly abundant vegetation for Lanzarote. Especially fascinating, however, are the basalt structures, millions of years old, which we walk and climb (who wants to). The way back runs above the valley, so that we can see this natural wonder from ever new perspectives.
