Visiting Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National Park is the perfect place to recharge the batteries by reconnecting with nature. Not only can you enjoy stunning, almost prehistoric scenery, but you’ll have the added bonus of experiencing a place of extreme natural beauty in a warm and sunny climate.
Lanzarote stands out as a leading European destination for sportsmen and women. This beautiful, sun-drenched island is home to a whole host of sports – on land, in water and air-bound. Whether you want to train for a triathlon, fly a paraglider through a cloudless sky, or shoot through the azure sea on a windsurf, you can take your pick on this beautiful island.
The Cuevas de los Verdes on Lanzarote is an experience not to miss, with its impressively lit grandeur stretching some 6Km along a volcanic tunnel that was created some 4,000 years ago when there was a mighty eruption of Mount Corona forming this lava tunnel. It is without doubt one of the longest volcanic galleries known, and luckily for us, open to the public since 1964 when a stone pathway was constructed allowing safe passage for tourists.
Lanzarote has been a popular destination for cyclists of all abilities for many years, with good reason. One of the principle reasons Lanzarote is a hub for cyclists is because of its climate – dry, warm and, unlike the UK, predictable.
The busy town of Tias is one of Lanzarote’s oldest municipalities. Despite its wide appeal to both locals and expats and inspiring ancient history, Tias is significantly less featured in the travel guides.
