Fascinating Lanzarote is truly extraordinary. Its fate was decided some two and one-half centuries ago, when the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history took place, leaving a strange and alluring countryside in its wake — a landscape littered with volcanoes and dark streams of jagged lava. This is the backdrop to nearly every scene on the island, and intriguing sights abound — none more so than the ‘Fire Mountains’. As for walking in Lanzarote, there is no better place in the Canaries for just strolling; ramblers will be in their element here. Each of the walks in this book takes you to a different corner of the island and shows you a scenically different outlook. But if walking is not your favourite pastime, then do explore Lanzarote by car.
Area covered: The guide covers the whole of Lanzarote and includes a day-trip to explore Fuerteventura by car. There is also a walk on the island of Lobos — off the coast of Fuerteventura, but also accessible by boat from Playa Blanca on Lanzarote.
The best time for walking in Lanzarote is from October to June.
