The Southern Lanzarote Scenic Tour departs in the morning from one of the designated points in Lanzarote (Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca and Puerto del Carmen).
Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, you will travel by coach to the dramatic Timanfaya National Park with its extraordinary lunar landscapes. The 8-kilometre square National Park is filled with black lava fields, craters and colorful volcanic cones.
Take photos non-stop as you cross the rugged landscapes to the summit of Islote de Hilario or Fire Mountain. Here, you can see some demonstrations of the intense underground heat. For example a staff member will pour water down a number of holes in the ground, only for it to burst back up again in a geyser like spout, a few seconds later. Another demonstration shows how quickly hay will catch light when exposed to the heat emanating beneath the earth.
You can then take a ride around the volcanic slopes before visiting La Geria, Lanzarote’s wine-growing region. Sample the fruity tipples amid the black lava vineyards.
Next stop is El Golfo – a vivid green lagoon in a crater. Other natural wonders await at the bizarre Los Hervideros, where waves force water into a labyrinth of caves with such force it appears as if the sea is bubbling and boiling. You can wander around pathways in the cliffs and watch the display below.
After seeing the amazing salt flats at El Janubio, it’s then off to a nearby beach resort. Here, you’ll have time to do some shopping, grab a bite or simply relax on the sands before your return trip.
At the end of the tour you will return to the original departure point.
