The calendar of the aborigines

Experimental Archaeology – the calendar of the Mahos/Guanchen – every year on December 21st – only in good weather. Crater hike on the traces of the ancient Canarians

Following the traces of the old-canarians (or Mahos, how the Guanches are called in Lanzarote) we hike into a volcanic crater after visiting an more than 1.000 years old Aljibe. In the crater we will learn about the history of these first settlers and how they lived. The way into the crater is well passable, but in some parts it may not be classified as “very easy”.
Finally we experience a fantastic event!

Costa Rubicon & Los Charcones

Easy hike in the Rubicon plain to the Charcones

Swimming in the Charcones – what a Lanzarote-Feeling
We start at the meeting point of the old seawater desalination plant of Yaiza. We drive along the coast towards the south, on a gravel road before we start hiking a small path along the cliffs, with great views from above onto the rocks and the roaring sea below us. The rocks here often have very special shapes and invite you to stay. We look for a sheltered spot (bathing is allowed on request) and return to the starting point after a long rest. The way back on the gravel road will be easy – so you don’t have to face a strenouos walk after your experience with the sea. On our way there is a lot of information about the history of Lanzarote in connection with the sea, salt and wildlife.

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!

Ajaches Valle Yaiza

Wanderung mit sehr schönen Aussichten im Süden Lanzarotes

Der Blick in Richtung Timanfaya.

Wir starten in der Nähe der Ortschaft Las Casitas de Femés und besteigen die Caldera Gritana, von der aus wir über Tablero und weitere Hügel (Los Lomos) den Atalaya de Femés erreichen. Unterwegs haben wir fantastische Aussichten auf den Nationalpark Timanfaya, sowie die malerischen Ortschaften Yaiza und Uga und das Hochtal von La Degollada. Der Atalaya de Femés ist der zweithöchste Gipfel auf Lanzarote und wir genießen von hier aus die Weitsicht über Playa Blanca und die Meerenge La Bocaina, bis hinüber nach Fuerteventura.

Länge: ca. 8 km
Dauer: ca. 4,5 Stunden incl. Pausen
Schwierigkeit: 2 von 5 mittelschwer
Terrain: 3 von 5 – Geröll, Sand und felsiger Untergrund, mehrere kleinere Anstiege mit flacheren Abschnitten wechseln sich ab. Man sollte auf unebenem Untergrund stabil laufen können. Diese Wanderung sollte auch bei bestehender Höhenangst gut machbar sein, bitte uns ggf. im Vorfeld aber mitteilen.

Eigenanreise mit Mietwagen – Abholung gegen Aufpreis.
Einkehr im Anschluss möglich – Teilnahme freigestellt.

Treffpunkt: an der Kirche in Femés

Hinweis zum Ablauf bei Streckenwanderungen (im Gegensatz zu Rundwanderungen): Der Treffpunkt ist in der Regel auch das Ziel der Wanderung. Nachdem wir uns am Treffpunkt getroffen haben, lassen wir ein oder zwei Autos dort. Danach fahren wir mit einem oder zwei Autos zum Startpunkt der Wanderung. Am Ende der Wanderung erreichen wir den Treffpunkt und nehmen die dort abgstellten Autos, um dann wieder zum Startpunkt der Wanderung zu fahren und die restlichen Autos abzuholen. Daher bitten wir darum, etwas mehr Zeit für diese organisatorische Notwendigkeit einzuplanen.

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.

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.

Money back guarantee if you don’t like it.

Remarks: Arrival with rental car – pickup at extra charge. Refreshment possible afterwards – participation is optional.

You should have the following with you: Sun protection, sufficient water (approx. 1 l per person), snack, a light jacket – in case it gets windy, photo equipment, sturdy shoes/closed shoes
