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.

Diamond-Excursion

Exclusive hike through La Geria and the lava fields bordering the Timanfaya National Park.

We start in La Geria and walk first on farm tracks at the foot of the volcano Diama along the wine fields. Of course we will go into the different aspects of farming in the UNESCO World Heritage Site before we dive into the lava of the eruptions of 1730-1736.
As we will be travelling on private land at the edge of the National Park, this excursion cannot be booked with any other provider or done on your own.

Thus, we really walk right through the lava of the eruptions of 1730-1736 and are fascinated by this bizarre landscape.

We would like to explicitly point out that some passages (approximately 2 x 500m) over the sharp-edged lava can be a challenge for the participants.

On this excursion we will also explain to you the volcanism of the Canary Islands in general, but also the peculiarities of the eruptions on Lanzarote in the 18th century.

Total duration: 3 hours 30′
Net walking time: 2 hours
Distance: approx. 6km
