Road trip 03: Lanzarote 🇪🇸

By

Route 3 is a trip visiting one of the most unique destinations in the entire Spain, the volcanic island of Lanzarote.

Unlike our other road trips, our Lanzarote tour is not a round trip, so you can choose the order in which you want to complete each day of the route.

On the first day, we spend the morning visiting the majestic and awe-inspiring Timanfaya National Park, the Land of Fire. We make a quick stop in lovely Yaiza before heading to the region known as La Geria, of irresistible beauty. It is a landscape dominated by lava and vineyards. To finish the day, we visit the majestic Famara Cliffs.

On day two we tour the southernmost point of Lanzarote. We get to an amazing start at the Cuervo Volcano. We then continue to fantastic El Golfo and the Charco de los Clicos, we visit Los Hervideros and then head to Playa Blanca to visit the most beautiful beach in the island, the Playa del Papagayo. To put a brilliant end to the day we climb to Femés and its wonderful views of the region.

We dedicate day three to tour the west side of Lanzarote, starting in Tías, visiting the amazing Grietas and the lovely village of San Bartolomé, with time for lunch at the traditional Teleclub de Mozaga. In the afternoon we head first to the Fundación César Manrique and then we go to Teguise, the former capital of Lanzarote. One of the highlights of the day is the Jardín de Cactus. We put an end to our day at the Charco de San Ginés in Arrecife.

Finally, on day four we tour the northern region of Lanzarote. We visit the charming Haría and then it’s time for some outstanding highlights of Lanzarote, such as the Mirador del Río, the Cueva de los Verdes or the Jameos del Agua. We finish day the day in the northernmost tip of the island, in Órzola.

  1. Hello tony,

    my wife and I have watched many of your youtube trips and are going to Lanzarote for the first time in February of next year. We are thinking of a modest hotel in Yaiza as this seems a fairly small town with fewer tourists but with places to eat and on a bus route even though we are thinking of hiring a car. Do you think this is a reasonable choice for a first time in Lanzarote?

    • Hi Bob, Yaiza is a lovely little place and doesn’t make for a bad choice, but we would advise you to rent a car unless you have an entire month to travel through the island.
