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.

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.

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.

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.

Lanzarote – Reise zur historischen Entwicklung

Wasser auf Lanzarote – eine Reise zur historischen Entwicklung der Insel

Die alte Wasserleitung vom Risco de Famara nach Arrecife.

Diese Wanderung ist zweigeteilt. Beide Etappen sind sowohl landschaftlich als auch auf Grund des historischen Hintergrundes absolut einzigartig. Auf dem einen Teil der Wanderung bewegen wir uns in dem äußerst reizvollen Gebiet zwischen Nazaret und Tahiche. Eindrucksvolle Weitblicke im Inselinneren, im Kontext zur Entwicklung von Lanzarote. Geologisch sehr interessant ist hier auch der schwarze Lavafluss des Vulkans Nueces, der uns einen Teil der Strecke begleiten wird.

Im zweiten Teil der (Rund-) Wanderung laufen wir entlang des Risco de Famara mit fantastischen Ausblicken auf den Risco, die Bucht von Famara und die vorgelagerten Inseln des Chinijo-Archipels. Auch hier ist die Wanderung gespickt mit vielen interessanten Informationen zur wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung der Insel, zu Flora und Fauna und dem Leben im allgemeinen vor hundert Jahren.
Touren abseits der touristischen Pfade sind unsere Leidenschaft. Diese Tour hat die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung – unter kärglichen Bedingungen – im Focus. Auch ohne Interesse an den historischen Details erlebt ihr hier etwas ganz Besonderes. Lanzarote-Feeling eben.

Länge: 2 Wander-Etappen von 2,5 km und 5 km, gesamt ca. 7,5 km (diese beiden Etappen können auch getrennt voneinander dargestellt werden)
Dauer: insgesamt ca. 4,5 – 5 Stunden incl. Fahrzeit
Schwierigkeit: 2 von 5; Falls Höhenangst besteht, bitte uns im Vorfeld mitteilen. Danke.
Terrain: 2 von 5 – Man sollte auf unebenem Untergrund stabil laufen können.

Preis: 42 € pro Person

Treffpunkt: Teleclub Nazaret

Tagesausflug im Archipelago Chinijo (Alegranza)

Tour mit dem Boot nach Alegranza und Montaña Clara, danach Wanderung oder Jeeptour auf La Graciosa und gemeinsames Mittagessen.

Blick auf Montaña Clara, La Graciosa und den Risco de Famara auf Lanzarote

Geplant: jedes Jahr im Herbst (September/Oktober)

Wir fahren mit dem Schiff nach Alegranza und dann weiter zur Montaña Clara. In erster Linie geht es bei dieser Tour um die Seevögel und Eleonoren-Falken, die dort brüten. Unterwegs sehen wir oft fliegende Fische, Thunfischschwärme und vielleicht auch Meeresschildkröten, Delfine, Wale oder auch Haie.

Eine Garantie gibt es dafür jedoch nicht. Danach fahren wir weiter nach La Graciosa. Der Kapitän entscheidet individuell, wie und wo und was (abhängig von Wellengang und Tide) wir fahren können. Auf La Graciosa steht eine Wanderung von Pedro Barba nach Caleta del Sebo auf dem Programm, dem einzig dauerhaft bewohnten Ort auf der Insel. Alternativ kann man auch eine kleine Inselrundfahrt im Norden von La Graciosa mit dem Jeep machen. Eine wunderschöne Fahrt mit vielen Highlights, auch zu einem der schönsten Strände der Kanaren, zum Playa de las Conchas.

Ca. 15.00 Uhr treffen sich alle Teilnehmer bei einem Essen in Caleta del Sebo. Danach können wir uns evtl. die Kirche anschauen und andere Eindrücke von einem Leben bekommen, das wir uns so kaum vorstellen können. Um 17.00 Uhr geht das Schiff zurück nach Orzola. (Stand Oktober 2019)
