Lanzarote es la isla más oriental del Archipiélago Canario y con mayor proximidad a las costas africanas. Los suaves vientos del continente han chocado por milenios con la furiosa actividad volcánica que dio origen a la isla, formando una cápsula terrenal única en el mundo entero.

Esta violencia ha creado uno de los paraísos más bellos de nuestro planeta y a su vez, ha generado las rutas de senderismo más singulares del hemisferio occidental.Lo accidentado de su orografía y el hecho que las lluvias sólo tocan el suelo lanzaroteño por menos de 20 días al año, favorecen la práctica del senderismo con unas condiciones ideales. La isla vive en una eterna primavera con suaves temperaturas, vientos frescos y un suelo que ha sido esculpido por siglos de una gran actividad volcánica. Esto ha creado rutas que compiten entre sí en belleza, complejidad y hermosura de los paisajes que las rodean.En Lanzarote podemos recorrer los paisajes más agrestes por superficies que se asemejan a la superficie de Marte con la mismafacilidad que podemos pasear por los más escarpados acantilados y suelos volcánicos.

Se han creado puntos icónicos dentro de la geografía de la isla que no pueden escapar de nuestra visita pero a su vez, existen caminos guardados como tesoros destinados alos senderistas más aventureros. Aquellos senderistas que huyen de las vistas programadas y rutas turísticas tienen en Lanzarote la perfecta oportunidad de hacer los más interesantes recorridos de manera independiente, segura y siempre satisfactorios.

Lanzarote contiene una de las mayores diversidades de microclimas, paisajes y senderos del mundo entero. Tesoros naturales que pueden visitarse durante todo el año y que esperan ser descubiertos por los más intrépidos exploradores.

Day 2

Femés - Pico de la Aceituna - Playa del Pozo

The mountain range of Los Ajaches, in the south of Lanzarote, was the seat of the aborigines. Today the village of Femés, with its farming and peasant tradition, is located in the upper part of the mountain range. Femés is a perfect vantage point with views to the south.  The islands of Lobos and Fuerteventura are within its visual space, as well as the Papagayo Natural Park, in the south of Lanzarote. The route starts with an ascent to the Pico de La Aceituna, whose summit is 450 metres above the sea.
From there the path continues until it reaches the next peak: the Pico Redondo at 555 metres above sea level. After enjoying magnificent views towards the east and south coast of the island, you start a continuous descent through the ravine, with impressive views over the Playa de la Arena.  And when you reach Playa Quemada, a humble fishing enclave in the south of Lanzarote, you can enjoy a swim in the sea before returning to Arrecife.

Ascent to the Caldera Blanca

The ascent route to the crater of Caldera Blanca is located very close to the Timanfaya National Park. It is the crater of a volcano that resulted from a single eruption. Its perfect crater has a diameter of 1.2 kilometres and the spectacle that opens up when you reach its summit cannot be described in words. From the village of Mancha Blanca, before arriving to Timanfaya, the path starts next to the road through some badlands until you reach the base of the volcano.
] After a continued ascent and reaching the edge of the crater, a huge mantle of volcanic slag and recent craters extends to the south. It is Timanfaya, the Montañas de Fuego National Park. And to the north, the small rural villages of Lanzarote colour the landscape until you reach the cliffs of Famara. And after the route, there is still room for a visit to the National Park.

Day 4

The Volcanoes of Soo

A circular route along the line of volcanoes of Soo, a small rural municipality in the northwest of Lanzarote. From the village of Soo itself, the path ascends towards the Pico Colorado (206m) located behind the village.
The Caldera Trasera can be seen in our ascent between the cisterns that collect the run-off water. The top of the Montaña de Soo, a huge Caldera of almost 300 metres high, offers extraordinary panoramic views over the different volcanoes of the area.
] Continuing then along the sea of Jable through cereal fields and sweet potatoes, we will arrive to the Montaña Chica (116m). Here we find a scenery made up of the remains of old buildings and a drinking trough for livestock, now in disuse. The islands of La Graciosa, Alegranza and Montaña Clara are outlined in the background next to the imposing Risco de Famara on the way back to Soo.

Day 5

On the North Coast

The route starts directly at the Jardín de Cactus in Guatiza, a botanical paradise created by the Canarian artist Cesar Manrique. After crossing the village and reaching the church, the path goes towards the Caldera de la Montaña Tinamala (old mouth of the volcano) and runs along the coast, crossing the urbanization Los Cocoteros, reaching the Natural Swimming Pool Cueva del Agua and the nudist urbanization of Charco del Palo.
This is a route that offers several possibilities to take a bath, along the way. La Olla, a natural pool of 10 metres in diameter, is possibly the most pleasant spot to do so.  Now the return path crosses abandoned farms with volcanic scoria and tuneras. A landscape full of contrasts in gentle ascent until you reach the Cactus Garden.

Day 6

Biking on La Graciosa

Today we are going to La Graciosa!  But first you have to drive to the port of Orzola, where the catamaran "El Graciosero" will take you in just over 20 minutes to Caleta del Sebo, the docking place in La Graciosa.
There awaits you our bicycle with which you can ride along the tracks and discover such spectacular enclaves as Pedro Barba, the spectacular Playa de Las Conchas in the north or the Playa Francesa in the south.
La Graciosa is a peaceful island of fishermen that lives away from the tourist frenzy of its neighbour Lanzarote. Its turquoise waters and the beautiful beaches of white sand invite to enjoy the sea. But the absence of traffic offers an unusual opportunity to cycle along its tracks in a slow and safe way.
And in the late afternoon "El Graciosero" will take you back to Orzola to return to your hotel in Lanzarote.

Day 7

The Famara Cliffs

From the beautiful Villa de Haría the trail heads towards the Risco de Famara, a natural wall located in the northwest corner of the island of Lanzarote. From the top of the majestic cliff we will enjoy splendid views towards the small island of La Graciosa.
The path runs southwards along the edge of the cliff with a spectacular panoramic view towards the Beach of Famara. And on the way back towards the Valley of the Thousand Palm Trees, we are accompanied by a splendid view of the Volcano of La Corona. But at the end of this first route in Lanzarote, the house-museum of the artist Cesar Manrique in Haría is a must-see. There he lived and painted in peace with his land during the last years of his life.
