Description of this tour

We start the tour visiting the National Park of Timanfaya where we see  in the Islet of Hilario the heat emanation from the earth although the eruption ended in 1736. After conducting the geothermal experiments we travel by bus the Route of the Volcanoes, a journey of 14 kilometers for a desolate place that evokes the planet Mars. Once finished, we continue to the Camel park where we make a photographic stop before heading to the coast of Timanfaya.

In the littoral of Timanfaya we are surprised by a low and rocky coastline, land gained from the sea during the period of volcanic activity of Timanfaya. On the way we enjoy the panoramic views of the Salinas de Janubio and Los Hervideros before arriving at our next stop in El Golfo, one of the most impressive volcanoes in the Canaries, where its black, ochre and reddish colors contrast with the green of the lagoon and the blue of the sea. From the viewpoint of El Golfo we have the best panoramic view over the Lago Verde or Charco de los Clicos.

"The traveler savoures everything with his twenty senses, [...] and found that he [...] was able to hear what he sees, to see what he hears, to smell what he feels at the tips of his fingers and to savor [...] Salt that at this exact moment is hearing and seeing in the wave that comes from the open sea "(José Saramago, Nobel Prize for Literature).

After the stop in El Golfo, we continue to the vine-growing area of La Geria where we are surprised by how they grow the vines and we will have the opportunity to taste the local wine. The Geria reminds us that life continues even in the apparent desolation.

The road takes us through the centre of the island to the Monument to the Farmer, where we stop for lunch before continuing to Guatiza, an area of cochineal cultivation, to visit the last work of César Manrique, a Cactus Garden that hosts more than 1000 specimens that originally are mainly from South America.

Already in the northeast we visit the two sections of the spectacular volcanic tunnel formed by the volcano of the Crown. 

Please note that we visit: Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes (the Green´s Cave) therefore comfortable shoes are recommended.

  • Sally W

    Great service. Picked us up on time and from exact point they advised.

  • Carrie S

    Bus was easy to locate, comfortable bus, great tour guide, learned loads was very informative. Tour spots were busy and it did feel like you were on a conveyor belt but you were able to see what you came to see and there was time to stop for gifts along the way. Would recommend as cars were queuing for an hour to see the Timanfaya place but the bus was able to drive straight past. Highlight of the day was the camel ride.

  • Fiona S

    Enjoyed the very comprehensive grand tour of the island, and the commentary.

  • Adrian J

    The trek on 13/10 and the tour on 16/10 were both excellent. The trek guide, Jose, is very friendly and knowledgeable. So too the tour guide, Eric.

  • Louise F

    Terrible lunch. Would have rathered an English only tour, without having to listen to the commentary in French too. Everything else was okay.

  • Tim O

    Tour guide was exceptional. Excellent knowledge and vary patient

  • Natalia K

  • Joanna G

    The grand tour on Lanzarote was a very nice experience. Nice tourist guide open to any questions that poped up. You can get know a bit of a story of Lanzarote, and get closer to the canarian culture and a beautiful nature of the island.

    Very enjoyable day out for my mother and I. The tour guide was exceptionally helpful and really made our day

  • Fiona W

    Picked up on time and transferred to another bus with Eric. Eric was fantastic, very knowledgeable and looked after everyone. Lots of stops and chances for toilets and refreshments. Highlights of the day were Timanfaya National Park and Jameos del Agua both had the WOW factor. I would definitely book with Lanzarote Experience again. Thank You.

  • Sophie C

    Really great day out. Thanks!

  • Douglas W

    The tour bus that collected us was not labelled Lanzarote Experience, so we were unsure that we were getting on the right bus. We were then told that we would have to change buses. It would have been good to have been advised that we would be collected and taken to a central point from where all the tours started. It seemed very confusing. The tour itself was very good. Our guide, Oliver, was very good. However, the commentary was not easy to understand due to the speed in which it was delivered. The lunch provided was also very good. I would have no problem recommending to others.

  • Leena K

    Una excursion interesante.

  • Victor O

    Very comprehensive tour, full of lots of information. Covered most of the "must see" items, other than Cueva de Los Verdes. Good lunch. Wine tasting could have been dropped. Excellent value.q

  • Victor O

    Very good overview of the island. Informative and amusing guide. Saw most of the "must do" sights on the island including Timanfaya and Jameos del agua. The only thing not worth doing was the wine tasting part. If possible, would like to have included Tahiche to see the Cesar Manrique Foundation. Very good value tour.

  • Pravjot K

    the guide was really friendly and talkative. They arrived on time. asked us which places we would like to see, and asked us for any other places we had in mind that was not part of the excursion. really impressed. thank you!!

  • David P

    We both really enjoyed the tour, the buffet lunch was very good and the guide and bus driver were both excellent.

  • Amnon A

    We really enjoyed the Tour. Everything was perfect. From the booking, all the way to our great guide (Radmilla - I hope I got her name correct). Tour was very interesting and the guide gave us a lot of information, answering every question. We will recommend our friends to take the tour !
