What to expect?
We propose a trip back in time to the volcanic heart of Lanzarote: the “Timanfaya National Park” and while you’re at it, taste the best wines of Lanzarote in La Geria.
Volcanism in its purest form! We start our journey in the direction of the Timanfaya National Park, including the “Route of the Volcanoes“. There we see different types of craters combined by a vivid chromatism that reflects the origin of the eruption, the materials that it emitted or even the intensity with which it exploded. We will see the traces of these eruptions, which took place almost 300 years ago, during geothermal demonstrations.
In another part of the Timanfaya National Park, we have the possibility to do something that both children and adults enjoy: “the camel ride” (optional).
Once we leave the National Park behind, the road takes us to the area known as “La Geria“, a peculiar wine-growing area where a very typical variety of Lanzarote abounds, the “Malvasia“, a landscape so unique that it is engraved in our memories.
The vines are planted in cones formed in the lapilli, called “picón” in the Canary Islands, and protected by small dry stone walls. Fruit trees, such as fig trees, are also planted in the same way. This form of cultivation allows the plants to take root more easily in the fertile soil, and the top layer of picón reduces water loss through evaporation. A landscape made up of thousands of holes and crescent-shaped walls that additionally protect the crops from the wind.
The memory is more complete when we do not limit ourselves to just seeing, but also to taste, to savour, to taste the rich wines that land as extreme as Lanzarote has the honour of producing. Of course, we visited a bodega and tasted its wine.
After these spectacular visits, we take the road back to our hotel.
