Lava in La Florida

Easy hike between the vine-area of La Geria and the lavaflows from the 18th century.

Impressive lava-flows in La Geria

We start along the vineyards in the foothills of La Geria. Heading west, we leave the paved and unpaved roads and walk on the young lava produced by the volcano “Nueces” in March 1736. The fantastic shapes and colors of the lava offer beautiful motives, also for photographers.

After about 2 km we take a break sheltered from the wind in a lava formation embedded in a depression. After another kilometer we reach the LZ 58, which we follow a short distance to the south, before we turn east again and start our way back on small paths through the lava. Further on we reach a small finca, which invites us to rest again, before we cover the last two kilometers on Picón and Lava.

On this tour we also like to touch the geological context of the island, if there is an interest in it among the participants.

Apart from the two “big breaks”, we often make a short stop and explain little things along the way – currently we hope (after the rain) for some greenery, so that we can also show and explain something about the island’s flora to the participants.

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.
