Hiking route to Volcán de la Corona and Riscos de Famara

What to expect from this hiking route to Volcan de la Corona and Riscos de Famara?

This route starts in Ye. From this town, our trek ascends towards the crater of La Corona volcano. During the walk, one can enjoy beautiful views of vineyards and spectacular lava flows known as “malpais” with huge basaltic blocks extending down to an emerald coast of white sand. After visiting its amazing crater the trail carries on around the east face of La Corona and there one is able to observe the lava tunnel of 7,6 km long. The last 1,6 km of this lava cave is undersea because the eruption of this volcano happened during the last ice age when the sea level was 90 m lower than nowadays.

Later on, the route will go along the highest part of Famara Cliffs. These cliffs are really a marvel of nature because is a huge wall of rock of more than 500m high rising up from the sea and 22 km along the northwest coast. During the walk along the edge of the central part of the cliff one will be able to enjoy fantastic views of Chinijo Archipelago, the group of islets situated at the north of Lanzarote and also not far from where we are, we will see the highest point Lanzarote, Peñas del Chache with 670m.

Due to the elevation and influence of trade winds during this part of the hike, visitors will discover one of the natural areas with more diversity of flora with many volcanic species and also birdlife that our nature guide will show you.
