Cave hiking “Cueva Naturalistas”

Amazing excursion into a Jameo (lava-tube) in the eastern part of Timanfaya.

Playing with light in the dark

With helmet and headlamp we enter a lava tunnel of the volcano Nueces, that was originated in March 1736 as the penultimate volcano in the big series of volcanic eruptions in the 18th century. We walk, and/or climb, partly through an approximately 550m long section of this tunnel.
This world without (natural) light, in the lap of lava will offer you an unforgettable experience – pure “Lanzarote-Feeling”.

This excursion is a very nice and relatively easy caving tour in the eastern Timanfaya area. Contrary to other caves in Lanzarote, this small excursion is also possible for people who do not like the extreme tours. Most of the Jameo has a stable and relatively flat floor, so that only at the entrance and exit (and once in between) some climbing is necessary.

A dream for every hobby geologist. Lanzarote-Feeling at it’s best.
Also those who can claim to have already learned, hiked and seen a lot about the fascinating world of the volcanoes in Lanzarote will surely experience something completely new and absolutely spectacular here.

Total duration: almost 2 hours incl. breaks
Net walking time: almost one and a half hours underground
Distance: about 1 km, of which about 600m underground
Terrain: 2 of 5 underground – with helmet and headlamp, sometimes climbing over rocks and scree; fear of heights or claustrophobia should not necessarily be an issue, but let us know in advance so that we can take it into account. You must be able to walk stably on uneven ground!
Difficulty: 3 of 5

Price: 28,00 € per person
Pick up at extra charge. Equipment: Helmet + headlamp (can be rented from us for a fee)
Sturdy shoes/closed shoes, sufficient water (approx. 1 l per person)
Refreshment possible afterwards – participation is optional.

Meeting point: Church in Masdache

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

Terrain: 3 out of 5 you should be able to walk stable on uneven ground

Tinguaton – volcanoes and vine

Caldera Quemada

Along the lava fields of the Timanfaya we first cross an inconspicuous volcanic group before we cross the vineyards near Mancha Blanca. We see and understand the wine cultivation on Lanzarote with all its efforts and agonies that lead to a unique quality. In the further course we come to an old site of the indigenous people. The fascinating history of the aborigines in Lanzarote and the Canary Islands will be briefly explained. Finally, we go up to a volcano – the Caldera Quemada. The view from the edge of the crater into the crater and beyond makes us amazed. On the way back there is a little surprise… And now we experience the lava landscape very closely.

As always, there is a lot of interesting and entertaining information about history, flora and fauna and geology on this tour.

Lanzarote-Feeling at its best.

Barranco Maramajo

Easy hike from Teguise to Famara through a fascinating notched valley (Barranco Maramajo), with beautiful views over El Jable and the bay of Famara.

View of the Risco de Famara and the offshore islands

We start in the former capital of the island Teguise and first walk to the old lime kilns that had an important significance for the economic development of the island in the 19th century. We pass them for approximately 1 hour slightly uphill (in total 150 height metres), on an unpaved road. Arrived at the highest point, we enjoy the wide view over El Jable, the Risco de Famara and the islands in front of Lanzarote.

Now we descend on a narrow path along the Risco down into the Barranco Maramajo. We follow the Barranco for a short stretch before we turn on a path above Las Laderas and have the Risco de Famara in all its splendour in front of us. This view accompanies us up to our destination above the Norwegian settlement near Caleta de Famara.

Especially in the winter time, this stretch is specially attractive due to its vegetation.

As always with us, this tour is full of information about flora and fauna, always in the context of the whole island. Pure Lanzarote feeling!

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.

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!
